ITW Linx of Carol Stream, Ill., releases the SurgeGate modular rackmount surge protector, which provides mix and match 12-module technology for cost, labor and space savings, according to the company.
With a response time of one to five nanoseconds, the 19-inch wide, 1U high product offers six types of protection, including Cat5 E-LAN, Cat5 E-POE, Cat5 E-75, Cat5 E-235, T1 and Telco CO (central office) line on a single 12-module rack.
New modules can be added in the configuration and numbers needed to meet evolving surge protection needs. Because the single rack comes with a common grounding wire, there is no need to ground each of the individual modules, providing up to an 80% reduction in installation time requirements, according to the company. The single grounding wire also helps minimize grounding errors in the installation of multiple surge protectors.
