The DT-LAN-CAT6 is a protective adapter to be inserted into the data line for the protection of LAN interfaces and the RJ45 cable.

Surge protection for information technology

Reliable data is indispensable in today’s industry. The sensitive systems used in LANs work with high frequencies at low signal levels and are networked over a wide area. Surge voltages can quickly lead to largescale failures and, in the worst-case scenario, data loss. Data Line Surge protectors are specifically designed to protect your investment in expensive wired, wireless and PoE equipment.

High-speed data protection

If you need effective Lightning, RFI, ESD and transient surge protection for highspeed data transmission, the DT-LAN-CAT.6+ offers universal protection without affecting the signal at network speeds of up to 10 Gbps.

Suitable for the following environments

  • 100/1000/10G-Base-T
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE+) “Mode A” and “Mode B”
  • TOKEN Ring
  • ISDN
  • DS1
  • VG-AnyLAN

Surge protection in accordance with Class EA (CAT6A). RJ45 attachment plug with separate grounding cable and ground connection snap-on foot for NS 35 DIN rails.

Protection Against Surge Voltage
LAN systems are safely protected against surge voltage by CAT6 Surge Protectors. Due to the high bandwidth of the surge protectors, the transmission signal is not influenced. All signal wires and the ground conductor must be connected to the surge protector according to the connection scheme. Any DIN rail should be grounded.
