The ESP PCB/D & PCB/TN Series is a combined Category D, C, B tested protector (to BS EN 61643) for ‘through hole’ mounting directly onto the PCB of data communication, signal or telephone equipment. Available for working voltages of up to 110 Volts. ESP PCB/TN suitable for Broadband, POTS, dial-up, T1/E1, lease line and *DSL telephone applications.

For use at boundaries up to LPZ 0 to protect against flashover (typically the service entrance location) through to LPZ 3 to protect sensitive electronic equipment.

Features & benefits

  • Suitable for wave soldering
  • Very low let-through voltage (enhanced protection to IEC/BS EN 62305) between all lines
  • Full Mode design capable of handling partial lightning currents as well as allowing continual operation of protected equipment
  • Repeated protection in lightning intense environments
  • Low in-line resistance minimizes unnecessary reductions in signal strength
  • 2 pin clean end and 3 pin line end to ensure correct insertion
  • ESP PCB/TN is suitable for telecommunication applications in accordance with Telcordia and ANSI Standards (see Application Note AN005)
