ITW Linx announces the global launch of its innovative SurgeGate Modular Rackmount surge protector. Providing warranty-backed protection and flexibility unmatched in the market, the mix and match 12 module technology offers a wide range of benefits over conventional, fixed wall mount surge protectors. The innovative technology features industry-leading response time and can generate significant cost, labor and space savings.
Through the use of solid state technology, The SurgeGate Modular Rackmount ensures enhanced safety and the fastest protection time in the industry with a response time of 1 to 5 Nanoseconds.
Unlike standard pre-assembled surge protectors, the SurgeGate Modular Rackmount is the only mix and match surge protector on the market that offers six types of protection: Cat5 E-LAN, Cat5 E-POE, Cat5 E-75, Cat5 E-235, T1 and Telco CO (central office) line on a single 12 module rack.
Users can install anywhere from one to 12 modules depending on surge protection requirements. New modules can be added in the configuration and numbers needed to meet evolving surge protection needs. The ability to use one single protector for up to 12 technologies can generate cost savings up to 40 percent. Because the single rack comes with a common grounding wire, there is no need to ground each of the individual modules, leading to up to an 80 pecent reduction in installation time requirements. The single grounding wire also helps minimize grounding errors in the installation of multiple surge protectors, further enhancing technology safety.
The SurgeGate Modular Rackmount is also the only warranty-backed product of its kind that is UL 497 listed and tested to TIA (Telecommunications Industry Association) standards--providing the protection against expensive downtime and equipment damage.
