Modular Data Line Protector

The PC642C Series surge protective device (SPD) is a two-pair (four wire) module implementing three stage hybrid technology. This SPD addresses over-voltage transients with gas tubes and silicon avalanche components. In addition, sneak and fault currents are mitigated with resettable fuses (PTCs). The PTCs increase resistance several orders of magnitude when over-currents exceed safe levels. A normal state resumes when over-currents are removed. The ability to self-restore in this manner significantly increases suppressor performance and survivability.

The PC642C card edge is gold-plated, double sided and is designed to mate with the base accessory (PCB1B) gold-plated female terminal connector (sold separately). When snapped together, the data circuits “pass thru” the protector in a serial fashion from the four “Field Side” terminals to the four “Electronics Side” terminals. Terminals 1 or 10 of the PCB1B must be attached to Building-Approved Ground.
