ESD protection for outdoor high-speed networks

Ethernet surge protection, model ETH-SP-G2 from Ubiquiti Networks:

The ETH-SP is a cost-effective solution for outdoor Ethernet devices to protect them from harmful electrostatic discharges and overvoltages.

All Ubiquiti airMAX devices already have an ESD built in, adding the ETH-SP can provide even more protection. The ETH-SP is designed to protect Power over Ethernet (PoE) or non-PoE devices with connection speeds of up to 1Gbps. Two passive surge protectionRJ45 connectors ensure maximum device compatibility.

Ideal für WISP-Netzwerke:

Install two ETH-SPs: one near the terminal and the other at the point of entry into the building. Harmful ESD discharges and overvoltages will be safely discharged by the ETH-SP and absorbed into the ground.

Note: For best possible protection, we recommend installing two voltage protection adapters. The first surge protector within one meter of the device data port to be protected and the second surge protector at the entry point of the site where the wired network equipment is located.

Overview about the hardware

  • Ethernet_Surge_Protector_ETH-SP-G2

1. ETH input/output port: Passive RJ45 Ethernet ports with surge protection.

2. Grounding point: The ETH-SP-G2 must be grounded in one of the following ways:

 ➥ Use the supplied self-tapping screws to ground the ETH-SP-G2 directly to a grounded metal post or structure. Alternatively

 ➥ use an M5 machine screw and nut (not supplied) to attach a ground wire connected to a remote ground block or other grounded object.

ESD Protection for Outdoor PoE Devices

Damaging electrostatic discharge attacks and surges are diverted to the ETH-SP and safely discharged into the ground, so network devices are protected.
