DITEK, a leading provider of surge protection solutions, is highlighting its DTK-WM4NETS surge protector to demonstrate the importance for all types of businesses to protect security, fire and other networked building systems from power surges and spikes that can damage or destroy equipment and data. The DTK-WM4NETS is a 4-channel, wall-mount surge protector that uses state-of-the-art circuitry to provide best-in-breed surge protection for shielded Ethernet, PoE and optional PoE extender circuits.
DITEK is displaying their new DTK-RM24NETS, a modular, rack-mounted surge protector here at ISC West 2018 (booth #6103). Designed with state-of-the-art circuitry, DTK-RM24NETS provides superior protection for shielded Ethernet and PoE connections and is ideal for installations where multiple Ethernet cabling feeds require surge protection before entering network switches. The DTK-RM24NETS is a 24-channel, 1U rack mount surge protector providing the industry’s strongest surge protection for shielded Ethernet and Power over Ethernet (PoE) connections.
DITEK announces the debut of the DTK- MRJEXTS surge protector, designed to be installed on the outputs of PoE Extender devices. The DTK-MRJEXTS is a point-of-use surge protector compatible with CAT5e, CAT6 and CAT6A cabling infrastructure, and when used with STP cabling, the DTK-MRJEXTS does not require a separate earth ground, allowing for simpler installation.
DITEK, a leading provider of surge protection solutions, is showcased its portfolio of Total Surge Solution (TSS) products at the 2017 NFPA Conference and Expo. Designed for complete addressable fire panel protection for AC, signaling, and notification circuits, the TSS lineup is compatible with all major alarm systems. Included in the TSS lineup are nine system-specific models, including 120V AC models with dry contacts so the device can be remotely monitored versus simply visually monitoring an LED.
At schools across the country, the summer months are often the time when upgrades, maintenance and new installation projects are carried out. Over these few months, schools are adding to or upgrading their video surveillance and security systems, improving network infrastructure, and even adding to the number of outdoor light poles, among other security improvement projects. But are the protecting the equipment as well?
We have all heard the phrase “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Security and fire prevention professionals across the country can attest to this as they routinely see losses in the tens of thousands of dollars that could have been prevented with the installation of a surge protection device. Fire alarm and other life safety and security system failures often are the result of power surges caused by events such as lightning strikes on unprotected systems. Schools, businesses, hotels and many other businesses are subject to a large number of lightning strikes and —without proper protection— these strikes can wreak havoc with daily operations and budgets.
