A typical WAN configuration consists of centralized servers, workstations and peripheral devices. The equipment within this configuration are susceptible to damage caused by ESD, EFT, EMI and secondary lightning threats.
Protection from these threats lies in the individual discrete protection for I/O ports at all equipment levels. Protection can also be provided at the system interconnecting ports. The protection schemes outlined are recommended for low insertion loss, high signal integrity and low noise/crosstalk with increasing bandwidth.
ProTek products provide protection from the effects of ESD/EFT/Surges as defined by IEC 61000-4-2, IEC 61000-4-4 and IEC 61000-4-5.
