Outdoor Gas Discharge (CAT6 Series) Tube Ethernet Surge Protector


Outdoor Ethernet Surge Protector

Cat6 Data Line Surge Protector

PN: 800-CAT6-SS

Outdoor 10/100/1000 Mbps Gas Discharge Tube (CAT6 Series) Ethernet Surge Suppressor

Outdoor 10/100/1000 Mbps Gas Discharge Tube (CAT6 Series) Ethernet Surge Suppressor

Extremely Robust Gas Discharge Tube allow it to protect CAT5/6 circuits like no other.  Recommended for Cambium 450i and ePMP access points.

Ultra low capacitive loading preserves Ethernet frame integrity and protects against frame check and cyclic redundancy errors.

Outdoor mount CAT6 Gas Discharge Tube surge suppressor – protector.  The circuit is similar to proven and popular 444SS suppression circuit and is identical to the CAT6-APC in design.

Proven Circuit

The proven and popular 444SS GDT circuit laid the groundwork for this ultra low capacitance design. (See ITU-T K.99)

The design provides protection for both common (longitudinal) and differential (transverse) mode surges.

This version supports 802.3af modes A and B. Shielded RJ45 jacks provide grounds and bonding to shielded plugs and shielded cables.

Shielded Connectors

This CAT6-SS Ethernet Surge Protector-Suppressor-Arrestor is a direct cross for 600SS and many other outdoor mount surge suppressors; however, this unit but is much more robust than most because of the shielded RJ45 jacks for industrial grounding/bonding and less loading  (low capacitance) for the long GigE circuits and greater protection from surges.

The design of this circuit does not employ Metal Oxide Varistors (MOV)s nor Back Up Gaps (BUGs); therefore it is both fast, durable and reliable!

It is simply a better circuit. Greater protection for your expensive equipment is provided by the CAT6-SS Ethernet Surge Protector.

As previously mentioned, shielded and grounded jacks bond shielded CAT5 and CAT6 wiring to the building ground system. This product was invented at the request of our WISP customers who had had failures of the 600SS made by by Motorola.

This protector is compatible with 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) circuits as well as passive POE systems.  It supports both PoE mode A and B for power.

The compact weather resistant housing features a hinged cover and mounting holes are provided on the rear and the inside of the enclosure for mounting. The cable grommet may be adjusted to cable size and is removable.

Hundreds of thousands of MTC Ethernet Surge Suppressors and telecom products are in use world wide by hundreds of customers

This protector is also available in the following versions: For indoor use with RJ45 Jacks, CAT6-APC
