DITEK Adds New Outdoor Surge Protector for Ethernet Cabling to Lineup
DITEK, a provider of surge protection solutions, has expanded its range of standards-compliant surge protectors for shielded Ethernet cabling with today’s introduction of an outdoor product. The DTK-MRJPOEX features a NEMA 4X enclosure with weatherproof connectors for installation in harsh or outdoor environments.
“The very nature of outdoor IP-based installations highlights the need for surge protection to prevent serious damage,” said Jason Klein, National Sales Manager, DITEK. “We design and build our products to protect the equipment and data that our customers depend on.”
When used with STP cabling, the DTK-MRJPOEX requires no earth ground. Its multi-stage technology and hybrid design provides superior protection for Ethernet devices. It is compatible with CAT5e, CAT6 and CAT6A cabling infrastructure and exceeds the IEEE Standards for PoE. Design features include shielded RJ45 connectors and liquid-tight cordgrips. Other specifications include a surge current rating of 20kA/pair; and gigabit data speed with no signal degradation.
At ISC West, Ditek will be highlighting the vital importance of protecting security, fire and other building systems from power surges and spikes that can damage or destroy equipment and data.
“When an organization learns that a multi-million dollar investment can be destroyed with one lightning strike, it becomes a very compelling value proposition,” said Mr. Klein. “At that point the ROI of surge protection becomes very obvious.”
