ESP Cat-5 & Cat-6 Series

The ESP Cat-5 & Cat-6 Series is a combined Category D, C, B tested protector (to BS EN 61643) suitable to protect twisted pair Ethernet networks, including Power over Ethernet (PoE), with RJ45 connections.

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 systems signalling on up to eight wires of either shielded or unshielded twisted pair cable
  • 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
  • Unlike some competing devices, the ethernet SPDs provide effective protection without impairing the system’s normal operation
  • Low capacitance circuitry prevents the start-up signal degradation associated with other types of network protector
  • Low in-line resistance minimizes unnecessary reductions in signal strength to maximize signalling distance
  • Sturdy ABS housing with convenient holes for flat mounting, or vertically via TS35 ‘Top Hat’ DIN rail
  • Substantial earth connection to enable effective earthing
  • Will protect all PoE powering modes A and B.
