About this item

The APC PTEL2 ProtectNet Standalone Surge Protector is compatible for Analog/DSL Phone Lines. Data line surges make up an overwhelming majority of all surge induced damages where the equipment was thought to be already protected but had a back door such as a modem line unprotected. Network interface cards, in particular, can be destroyed by relatively mild spikes. According to Ethernet standards (IEEE 802.3), non-AC network electrical hazards include: Direct contact between components and power or lightning circuits, static charge buildup on cables and component, high-energy transients coupled onto the local cabling system (those induced by other cables which are installed in the general proximity of network cables or lightning within a mile radius) and potential differences (even from building to building, between safety grounds to which components are connected).

Key Features

  • Catastrophic Event Protection: SurgeArrest components such as MOVs and Thermal fuse ensure instantaneous reaction to lightning strikes and wiring faults. If the surge components are damaged due to power spike or over voltage, excess power cannot reach your equipment
  • Catastrophic Event Protection: Unlike the APC SurgeArrest products, most surge suppressors continue to let power through even after circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to other damaging surges
  • Data-line Protection: Protection of data lines (Ethernet, Coaxial and Phone lines) ensures complete protection of your equipment from surges
  • Data-line Protection: It is very important to protect your equipment from "back door" surges traveling through data lines, as they can be as damaging to your equipment as surges traveling over power lines
  • Fail Safe: Mode Most other surge suppressors continue to let power through even after their circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to future surges
  • Fail Safe: APC's SurgeArrest fail safe, which means that once the circuit of an APC SurgeArrest has been compromised the unit disconnects equipment from the power supply ensuring that no damaging surges reach your equipment
  • Lightning and Surge Protection: To prevent damage to your equipment from power surges and spikes
