Mon, 04/30/2001 - 7:57am
The new DCWR48 Surge Protector, available from AC Data Systems, provides high capacity surge protection in a weather resistant enclosure to protect outdoor or indoor equipment common to broadband, wireless installations. Rated for use in 20 ° C to 80 ° C temperatures, the DCWR48 hardwires to DC power cables to safeguard outdoor equipment such as radio towers, or indoor rectifiers, power systems, and other sensitive electronics powered by a 48 V DC nominal service voltage. The DCWR48 can be configured with silicon avalanche diodes and/or metal oxide varistors surge suppression technology to provide response times as fast as < 5 ns and peak transient current capacity of 50,000 amps (8 × 20 μ s).
