Protection modules for computing equipment

14 October 2015 Circuit & System Protection

The Duoline range from Clearline Protection Systems is designed to protect sensitive computing equipment against lightning and electrical surges without additional earthing. Employing multiple stages of protection and a resettable circuit breaker, the modules are capable of blocking severe surges and incor-porate line filtering circuitry.

Protection of 230 V a.c. (50 Hz) mains power, ADSL line (up to 10 Mbps) and network cable (gigabit Cat5e; power-over-Ethernet) are provided, and built-in thermal protection eliminates fire hazards. Compliant with IEC and IEEE standards, the units incorporate a fast overload device which will be activated in extreme conditions, while a functional indication light displays the earth and protection status of the unit.
