Model 510 Protects Four Wires on the RJ-11 Connector (Combined Surge Handling of 2400 Watts
Model 512 Protects Eight Wires on the RJ-45 Connector (Combined Surge Handling of 4800 Watts)
Heavy Braided Ground Strap Diverts Surge Energy to Frame Ground
Clamping at 18 Volts for RS-232 and 7.5 Volts for RS-422
"Fail Safe" Design Guards Hardware in Case of Severe Surge
The Patton EPG Model 510 and 512 surge protectors let you choose 4 or 8 wire protection for either an RS-232 or RS-422 modular interface. These ultra-miniature protectors fit almost anywhere and handle transient surges up to 600 watts per wire. Harmful surge energy is diverted safely to chassis ground using a built-in braided metal strap. Should these protectors encounter a severe surge above their rated capacity, they will divert all voltages to ground. This means that the surge protector will sacrifice itself to protect the network.
