RAK - Ideal for 19" Relay Racks Supporting LAN HUBS, Concentrators, and Multi-Port Interfaces
 
 

Transient surges can enter electronic equipment through any pathway provided. Facilities with reliable AC power protectors can still experience surge-related, system downtime. Transient surge energies from sources such as inductive load switching, ground loop currents and electrostatic discharge are clamped by AC protectors into the shared communication ground, resulting in damage to expensive communications hardware.

The RAK Series includes 16 port, 19" relay rack protectors as well as 16 and 32 port, 5" standoff units for wall mount protection or environments where 19" relay rack space is limited. A wide variety of communication interfaces are supported that include 10BASE T and 100BASE T Ethernet, ATM155, CDDI, 100VG-AnyLan, RS232, RS422, and high speed LAN/WAN applications. For telco requirements we offer protection for Dial-up, T1, DDS, ISDN and other lease line environments. These devices exhibit an extremely fast response time of less than 5 nanoseconds.

All these features make RAK protectors the most cost effective and versatile devices of their kind available today. Whether you need to protect a single network concentrator, or an entire relay rack full of voltage sensitive equipment, Cylix RAK series protectors are an easy, cost effective solution to overvoltage problems.

ORDERING INFORMATION
To order a RAK, choose the correct part number by selecting the system application the above chart.

NOTE:
Special units can be supplied for any clamp voltage between 7.5 V and 240 V. The following information must be specified when ordering special units:
1. Connector type and number of wires to be protected (ex., RJ45, 8 wires)
2. System application (ex., Token Ring, Ethernet, ISDN, T1)

INSTALLATION

To install, insert the protector in series between the incoming communication lines and the I/O port of the equipment to be protected. The protector ground wire must be connected to the metal chassis of the equipment being protected. Units should be installed at both ends of the data cable for effective protection.

CAUTION!
Ground wire must be grounded directly to the metal chassis of the equipment being protected. Also, the equipment chassis must be connected to earth through a properly grounded AC power receptacle.
