Surge Protection For Data And Telecommunications by Phoenix Contact
Data and telecommunication circuits are also a common pathway from which transients can enter your sensitive electronics. In addition to causing physical damage, transients induced onto data lines can interrupt data streams and prevent the information from getting to its intended recipient. These interruptions can cause costly downtime and reduced system availability.
These surge protection devices typically utilize a hybrid circuit consisting of fast-reacting suppressor diodes and high capacity gas-filled tubes. Because of their high data transfer speeds, special care must be taken with surge protection circuits so as to not attenuate the normal data flow. The most important issues for selecting surge protection devices for data circuits are: termination connector, signal voltage level, and data rate.
