L-com to Offer Economy In-Line Cat6 Lightning and Surge Protectors

These new products protect valuable equipment from static discharge, lightning and faulty wiring

NORTH ANDOVER, MA - 05/08/14 - L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced today that they have expanded their ELP series protector line with two new Cat6 lightning and surge protectors. Like the Cat5 models, these new products protect valuable equipment from static discharge, lightning and faulty wiring. Given the cost of replacing damaged equipment and the resultant loss of productivity, the cost of an in-line suppressor is small.


"L-com's inline style Cat6 protectors are easy to install, built for maximum durability and feature rugged aluminum construction," said Patrick Pesa, Director of Product Management, "At this low price they are worth the investment to protect valuable equipment."

Designed for use with 10/100/1000 Base-T Gigabit Ethernet networks, the indoor Cat6 protectors feature RJ45 jacks and easily connect in-line with existing data cables. Both of the ELP-CAT6 series protectors are compatible with 802.3af/at Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) devices and support PoE mode A and B for power. The ELP-CAT6 model also features a small Ethernet jumper cable so no additional data lines are needed when used with existing data lines.

The ELPD-CAT6 model is designed for DIN applications. A mounting clip located on the rear of the unit allows it to be mounted to standard DIN 3 rails. This model also includes an Ethernet jumper cable. For multiple DIN protector installations, 3, 5 and 10 position busbars are available to combine all the protector grounds together.
