L-com, a global leader in the manufacture of wired and wireless connectivity products announces the addition of two new lightning and surge protectors to its broad product offering.

The HGLN-CAT5J is fully compatible with industry-standard 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) devices and 10/100 Base-T Ethernet networks, providing protection to both Ethernet data pairs as well as the PoE DC power feed. The unit supports both modes A and B of the 802.3af standard for supplying DC power.


The AL-D4W-DP is a high performance lightning protector and provides superior protection of DSL and Telephone lines from transients or surges caused by lightning strikes. Like the HGLN-CAT5J, this protector utilizes Thyristor diode technology which has superior power handling capability compared to TVS or Zener diode based designs. The unit will protect up to 4 signal pairs.
