DITEK's New Outdoor Surge Protector for Ethernet Cabling Featured at ASIS 2017
DITEK’s Outdoor Surge Protector for Ethernet Cabling provides a highly effective and cost-efficient solution to protect surveillance and security devices and systems. Featured this week at ASIS 2017 (booth #701), the hardened unit (model DTK-MRJPOEX) features a NEMA 4X rated enclosure with weatherproof connectors for installation in harsh or outdoor environments.
“When an organization experiences a multi-million-dollar loss after a lighting strike because they didn’t have the proper surge protection precautions in place, the benefits of surge protection are quite apparent,” said Jason Klein, National Sales Manager,
DITEK. “The addition of our new outdoor Ethernet surge protector should be a no-brainer for organizations with external surveillance and security systems to protect their investment and ensure these critical systems stay up and running.”
When used with STP cabling, the DTK-MRJPOEX requires no earth ground and has a field replaceable surge module. 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 cord grips. Other specifications include a surge current rating of 20kA/pair; and gigabit data speed with no signal degradation.
At ASIS 2017, 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.
“Loss of security, surveillance and life/safety system operations is costly on many levels,” continued Mr. Klein. “The simple implementation of surge protectors, regardless of the source location, can ensure the continued operation of life/safety and security devices as intended.”
