Linx CAT6 Protector up to 10x Faster than CAT5
High speed surge protector.
Carol Stream, IL — ITW Linx, a division of Lumex, has launched its innovative SurgeGate CAT6 RJ45 4-Pair surge protector. Thoroughly tested to meet or exceed CAT6 standards for signal integrity and using solid-state technology for enhanced surge protection and response time, the device reportedly provides superior protection for technologies using 10G Base-T Ethernet connections.

The SurgeGate CAT6 RJ45 4-Pair protector incorporates patented circuitry that allows the protector to provide a response time to capacitance ratio superior to any product available in the market today.

According to the company, SurgeGate CAT6 RJ45 4-Pair protector's solid-state circuitry ensures enhanced safety and the fastest protection time in the industry with a response time of 2-5 Nanoseconds. This is up to 2500 percent faster than the clamping speeds obtained with older gas-tube technologies which are still very present in the market today as well as up to 10x faster than the clamping speeds provided by CAT5.

The SurgeGate CAT6 RJ45 4-Pair protector is available in three different clamping voltage levels: 16V for LAN internet applications; 75V for applications requiring paired power and data such as POE and VOIP phone systems and security cameras; and 235V for voice analog telecommunication applications.

The protector is available with both wall mounted and rackmount housing options. The wall mounted device measures 9 x 4.5 x 2-in. (228 x 114 x 51mm) and houses anywhere from one to six surge protector modules. The 1U 19-in. rack mount housing houses anywhere from one to 12 surge protector modules.

ITW Linx surge protectors are UL listed. They meet or exceed the UL 497 standard are RoHS compliant.
