Surge Protection

Data line surges make up an overwhelming majority of all surge-induced damages. Usually, the equipment was thought to be already protected but had a back door such as a modem line unprotected. Network interface cards, in particular, can be destroyed by relatively mild spikes. Easy-to-install APC surge protection devices provide a lot of peace of mind for the money!

Most other surge suppressors continue to let power through even after their circuits have been damaged. This leaves your equipment exposed to future surges. APC’s SurgeArrest fail safe, meaning that once the circuit of an APC SurgeArrest has been compromised the unit disconnects equipment from the power supply. This ensures that no damaging surges reach your equipment.

Data-line Protection

Protection of data lines (Ethernet, Coaxial and Phone lines) ensures complete protection of your equipment from surges. It is very important to protect your equipment from “back door” electric surges traveling through data lines. These can be as damaging to your equipment as surges traveling over power lines. The APC family of surge protection devices come in to the following categories.

APC ProtectNet

ProtectNet stand-alone surge suppressors protect individual data lines, including telephone and network lines, coax cables, and more. Inserting a ProtectNet surge suppressor in your data line and connecting it to earth ground prevents back-door surges. This can save you productivity and money.
