Ethernet Lightning ProtectionPro-Tek5 Systems, Ltd. today announced a new series of Ethernet Isolators. This new PTE-5T series provides the same proven 5KV isolation found in the PTI-45 series while adding the ESD protection that complies with IEC 61000-4-2 for 15KV (air) and 8kV (contact) Electrostatic Discharge.

ESD is a serious issue in solid state electronics and integrated circuits, such as Phys and Ethernet Controller chips. Integrated circuits can suffer permanent damage when subjected to high voltages. The Pro-Tek5 PTE-5T series provides the necessary protection for sensitive communication equipment.

This series is available in both 10/100 and Gigabit Ethernet versions and is designed for operating temperatures of -10C to +85C.

Samples are available (on a loan basis) from stock to 3 week lead time. Production units are available with 5-7 week lead time. Pro-Tek5 Systems, Ltd. products are available exclusively through Halo Electronics, Inc. For more information, please contact Halo Electronics, Inc.
