Lightning Protector handles up to 20,000 W.

Press Release Summary:



Category 5 High Current protector offers full 20,000 watts of protection and field-tested (with 8/20 micro waveform) real-time CAT 5 functionality. During tests, units were tested repeatedly at 6kV/3kA without failure. Peak voltage seen at output was 33.2 Volts. Protectors are also available for both analog and digital phone circuits, which make them suitable for Voice over IP.

CoreTEK Industries, Inc. of Titusville, FL introduces the highest strike potential device in the industry for Category 5 data-line protection! These new protectors offer a full 20,000 watts of protection compared to the industry norm of 1,500 watts. Units were tested repeatedly with an 8/20 micro waveform at 6kV/3kA, without failure. The peak voltage seen at the output was 33.2 Volts.

Field tests were conducted to verify real-time CAT 5 functionality. A 326-ft. cable, longer than the limit for a CAT 5 link (308-ft.) was used. As expected, the cable caused a length test failure. However, the longer cable was chosen to prove the ability of the new products to operate beyond current CAT 5 requirements. Category 5 High Current protectors are also available for both analog and digital phone circuits, which make them ideal for Voice over IP.
