DEHNpatch – Arrester for Data Networks and Ethernet Applications
- Patch cable with surge protection
- Cat. 6 according to ISO/IEC 11801
- CAT 6A in the channel according to ANSI/TIA/EIA-568
- Power over Ethernet IEEE 802.3 compliant (up to PoE++ / 4PPoE)
- IP66 variant for outdoor applications
- Easy to retrofit
The space-saving design of the patch cable or compact socket-socket versions of the DEHNpatch surge arrester makes them particularly easy to install. So, as well as being easy to equip in new systems, retrofitting is possible at any time and without any great effort. Due to its fully shielded design, DEHNpatch can be used in shielded and unshielded networks.
DEHNpatch is installed between the patch panel and the active component (e.g. switch). Safe equipotential bonding is provided by the surge current resistant DIN rail supporting foot with snap-in mechanism. The DEHNpatch with integrated patch cable is delivered with a standard cable length of 3 m. Arresters with other customised cable lengths of up to 10 m are available on request.
The width of the DIN rail mounted devices is similar to that of an RJ45 socket, allowing up to 24 devices to be installed next to one another in a 19“ rack. For multiple application in 19“ distribution boards, a DEHNpatch mounting set is recommended and is available as an accessory.
The IP66 version of DEHNpatch with its universal mounting device, especially developed for outdoor applications, can be installed on poles as well as on walls. The arrester is directly earthed via the metal enclosure. Screws in the enclosure cover are secured against falling out which facilitatesinstallation, particularly when working at heights (e.g. on poles). Special cable seals take the effort out of installing the arrester with pre-assembled patch cables because they eliminate the need to mount RJ45 plugs on the lines entering the enclosure.
