EtherWAN Systems Launches a Surge Protector Product Line

Taipei, Taiwan — January 30, 2015 —
EtherWAN Systems, Inc., one of the leading global providers of network solutions, launches the PD Series, the Surge Protection Device (SPD) product line, with total surge protection current up to 10kA. The PD1041 features two RJ45 ports compatible with pass-through data/ power of standard Gigabit Ethernet/ Power over Ethernet, and a wide operating temperature range (-40°C to 75°C under 100Mbps throughput). It also passes CE, FCC, VCCI, UL497B and RoHS compliance requirements.

High electromagnetic interference, unstable electricity, and indirect lightning often generate undesired voltage surges toward the network equipment. When a surge occurs, the PD1041 will isolate the surge to the ground, thus the network devices, cables and data communications are free from additional damage. For example, the PD1041 can be DIN-rail mounted in a rooftop cabinet to connect with outdoor PoE speed dome cameras, wireless APs, or PoE switches, protecting the LAN devices and cables from crippled.

EtherWAN’s hardened grade products are already designed in compliance with EN61000-4-5. The PD1041 can work with all EtherWAN products when higher level of data port protection is needed. Testing with PoE under 1Gbps transmission rate, the PD1041 has proven itself without CRC errors under 50oC temperature while other brands easily surrender at 30oC temperature environments. All explains the PD1041 is in high availability and reliability.

More Surge Protection products by EtherWAN will be introduced later in 2015; for instance, the one equipped with a pair of RJ11/2-pin terminal block sockets.
