ESD Protectors Help Create 5 kV Isolation Through Ethernet Cabling
Fri, 01/07/2011 - 12:09pm
Pro-Tek5 Systems’ Ethernet Isolators offer a method of creating 5 kV isolation to equipment through the Ethernet cabling system. Suitable for patient management equipment applications, the PTI Series of Ethernet Isolators is available in 10/100 or Gigabit, providing IEEE802.3 compliant Insertion Loss and Return Loss performance while meeting the most stringent isolation requirements. Proprietary UL/EN60950 recognized reinforced insulation isolation systems are used to achieve this high level of isolation for applications with working voltages up to 300 V. The PTE-5T series is an advanced ESD protector providing 5kV isolation and common and differential ESD protection to each of the data pairs. Surge suppression meets IEC 61000-4-2 15kV (air) and 8kV (contact) and IEC 61000-4-5 10A 8/20 us. Both series are available with or without mounting tabs as required by the customer application.
