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.
When ordering a Model 510, 511 or 512, we ask you to provide us with two pieces of vital information:
- Whether your application is 4-wire (RJ-11), 6-wire (RJ-12) or 8-wire (RJ-45)
- Whether your application is RS-232 (clamps at 18V) or RS-422 (clamps at 7.5V)
