Modular Rackmount surge protectorITW Linx announced the launch of its SurgeGate Modular Rackmount surge protector. The mix and match 12-module technology is asserted to offer the fastest protection time in the industry with a response time of 1-5 ns. This surge protector 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, according to the company. 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 asserted 80 percent reduction in installation time requirements. The single grounding wire also helps minimize grounding errors in the installation of multiple surge protectors.  The SurgeGate Modular Rackmount is UL 497 listed and tested to TIA (Telecommunications Industry Association) standards
