L-com Releases DIN Mountable RS232 and Control Line Surge Protector

The HGLND-D2-12 is designed to protect two pairs of differential data or analog signal/control lines.

NORTH ANDOVER, MA -1/15/15 - L-com Global Connectivity, a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced today that they have released a new DIN mountable 3-stage lightning protector to protect RS232 and industrial control lines.


The HGLND-D2-12 is a high performance 3-stage lightning protector that provides superior protection of differential or balanced digital or analog lines from transients and surges. The first stage is comprised of a differential gas discharge tube. Stage two consists of a pair of current limiting series resistors and the final stage includes a low capacitance diode array.

The HGLND-D2-12 is designed to protect two pairs of differential data or analog signal/control lines.

"These new DIN surge protectors leverage the success of the field proven HGLN-D2-12 protectors and were developed to address surges and transients found in industrial environments where critical equipment must be protected. By utilizing a three-stage system, these surge protectors are able to handle surges that lower cost single-stage protectors cannot," said Ken Burgner, Product Manager.

The HGLND-D2-12 can be mounted to a DIN 3 rail using the DIN mounting clip located on the rear of the unit. For more complete surge protection of data lines, the use of two units is recommended, one at each end of the line.
