Transtector Systems, an industry-leading provider of end-to-end power and signal integrity solutions, today launched a comprehensive family of surge protection kits engineered specifically for ultra-high power over Ethernet (UHPoE) applications, addressing the growing need for reliable protection in outdoor intelligent transportation services (ITS), IP security, CCTV and other installations.
Each Transtector UHPoE-series kit includes the company’s ALPU Fit and DPR Fit PoE++ surge protection units coupled with L-Com Cat6a cabling (available in various lengths), providing a total solution tested and validated for both indoor and outdoor applications.
The move to higher power PoE to meet growing requirements for data delivery has created additional complexities in deployment and ongoing usage. Users of PoE+ and PoE++ cameras and radios installed outdoors face numerous obstacles to ensuring uninterrupted data transmission.
Transtector ALPU Fit and DPR Fit units address these demands directly, reliably protecting sensitive equipment from lightning strikes and other surges. Fully configured Transtector UHPoE kits not only address surge protection, but also include grounding and accessories that are PoE++, GbE and outdoor-rated, reducing the risk of transmission interruption during outside interference events.
“Mission-critical outdoor applications are growing so quickly, and they typically handle vital operations, whether it’s security for an essential installation, cargo inspection or any number of situations,” said Gabriel Guglielmi, Vice President of Product Management. “There’s a high level of exposure in all of these applications, and with the UHPoE kits, we’re providing simple, effective, configurable solutions engineered specifically for the environment.”
Transtector tests each ALPU Fit, DPR Fit and cable as one unit to pass full power and data to powered devices, including a complete test report in each kit shipped. Each kit also includes interoperability certification by the Ethernet Alliance, essentially future-proofing the location if users replace cameras and radios with new equipment.
Additional key features include:
- Cable length options: 10, 25, 50, 75, 100, 200 and 250 feet
- ALPU Fit and DPR Fit SPDs utilize hybrid SASD technology for long-term reliability and minimized degradation
- Rugged, weatherized enclosure design includes high-quality grommets and gaskets, as well as corrosion, UV and salt fog protection
- Pole- or wall-mountable
- L-Com Cat6a cables emphasize quality in physical cable, conductor and connector technology
