- CAT6, CAT5e and CAT5 compatibility
- GR-1089 Intra-Building rated
- Cable shield isolated from safety ground
- Power-Over-Ethernet (PoE) compatible
- All lines protected
The ADP8009 Lightning Protector provides superior lightning and surge protection for indoor 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet networks. The unit has low line to line and line to ground capacitance to minimize distortion of high-speed signals. The design provides protection for both common and differential mode surges.
The ADP8009 has been designed to meet the GR-1089 Intra-Building surge protection requirements for 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet lines. In addition, the unit is compatible with 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) devices. This device supports PoE mode A and B for power. It also isolates the cable shield from the metal enclosure and the safety ground. This minimizes the chance of a ground loop being introduced.
The ADP8009 features shielded RJ45 jacks with isolation from the metal housing and safety ground. This minimizes the chance for ground loops when using shielded cable. The unit’s metal housing helps shield the effects of EMI interference and reduce signal radiation. A ground lug and terminal is provided directly on the lightning protector housing, providing superior grounding. A second ground and terminal is provided for strapping multiple units together. For maximum protection from lightning on long cable runs, use two ADP8009s, one at each end of the cable.
