Modular Surge Protector Removes the Guesswork


DITEK Deflector Series SPD

Las Vegas Convention Center  ♦  Las Vegas, NV

DITEK's new Deflector Series Surge Protective Device lets the user know in three ways when it requires attention. Unique rapid-replacement modules make it possible to have the unit up and running again in only a few seconds. The Deflector is conveniently wall-mountable, with no additional enclosure required, allowing it to be placed in close proximity to core systems or devices that warrant the highest levels of protection.

“The Deflector Series makes it even easier to keep fire alarm panels – or any mission-critical 120-volt device not exceeding 20 amps – safe from damage or destruction from power surges,” said Jason Klein, National Sales Manager, DITEK. “Up until now, it’s been a problem for users who may not see a visible out-of-service indicator until it’s too late and their equipment has been damaged by a power surge. The Deflector solves that problem with a unique audible alarm that can’t be ignored. The Deflector is ideal for convenience stores as owners/operators will know immediately if a power surge puts their facility out of commission, and it would take only three seconds to pop in a new module and have it working again.”

The first product in this new series, the DTK-DF120S1 Deflector Series Surge Protector is a 120-volt dedicated circuit protection device designed to minimize damage from AC supply voltage spikes by isolating incoming surges that originate from lightning strikes and other sources. The device is simple for a licensed electrician to hardwire into a circuit, with no enclosure or rack required.

When the Deflector does its job by absorbing a power surge and stops functioning, the unit sounds a loud audible alarm and an LED flashes, indicating that the module needs to be replaced. Intelligent notification is also available via dry contacts which can be connected to alarm panels to alert central station monitoring that the module needs replacing.

“With the Deflector Series, you’ll always know when the surge protection on your critical devices and systems requires immediate attention. When it goes, you’ll hear it and see it, and it’s a true rapid-replacement for the module,” said Klein. “Whether it’s a fire alarm panel or a whole rack of servers, our new Deflector Series will best protect every device powered by 120 volts.”

The Deflector Series is UL1449 listed as a Surge Protective Device (SPD), as well as UL1283 listed for EMI/RFI noise filtering.

DITEK Showcases New Network Surge Protection at GSX

DITEK Showcases Network Surge Protection at GSX

Las Vegas Convention Center  ♦  Las Vegas, NV

Designed with state-of-the-art circuitry, the DTK-RMNETS lineup provides superior rack-mounted surge protection for up to 24 shielded Ethernet and PoE connections in a compact 1RU mount - ideal for installations where multiple Ethernet cabling feeds require surge protection before entering network switches. The improved lineup lets installers match the number of connections needed for a project while providing room for easy growth, and supports hybrid protection with a mix of both Ethernet/PoE and PoE Extender circuits within a single rack-mount housing.

“The enhanced DTK-RMNETS product line is the next evolution in surge protectors for Ethernet and PoE,” said Jason Klein, National Sales Manager, DITEK. “It provides unmatched value and exceptional protection for networked systems, and is easy to maintain and replace when protection modules have sacrificed. When used in conjunction with our single-channel protectors at the equipment end of the cable runs, users have a comprehensive network protection solution.”

The flagship of the enhanced lineup is the DTK-RM24NETS, a 24-channel, 1U rack mount device providing the industry’s strongest surge protection for shielded Ethernet and Power over Ethernet (PoE) connections. Compatible with CAT5e, CAT6 and CAT6A cabling infrastructure, it supports data speeds up to 10GbE, offers field-replaceable modules that can be swapped without removing the housing from the rack, and provides surge protection grounding to remote devices when used with STP cabling. PoE Plus and Hi-PoE ready for high-wattage applications, the DTK-RM24NETS complies with IEEE standards 802.3af and 802.3at for PoE surge protection and is enclosed in rugged galvannealed housing.

The complete DTK-RMNETS rack-mount protection product series now includes models with 12, 16 or 24 channels to better match a range of project sizes. Along with the new 24-channel model, the company announced improvements to the 12 and 16-channel versions that allow additional modules to be added at any time to support up to 24 channels to accommodate current system needs or future growth. In addition, the rapid replacement modules can now be mixed within a single housing to support hybrid operation with both Ethernet/PoE and PoE Extender circuits, providing even more flexibility for meeting the needs of both new installations and adding protection to current installations.

The company also offers single channel Ethernet/PoE and PoE Extender protectors that are designed to be installed on the device end of the cable to ensure protection at both ends. This is recommended practice for externally mounted cameras, and required by the NFPA when a SLC Loop runs between two buildings.

“Surge protection is an important preventive step to help preserve the functionality of all types of electronic devices and systems,” added Mr. Klein. “Adding surge protection is an easy, cost-effective measure to ensure that life safety and security devices can do their essential jobs without interruption.”
