CTS Adopts K.21 Surge Protection Test (6KV) for Outdoor PoE Applications

When deploying networking devices indoor or outdoor, these devices are under high risks being destroyed by lightning or temporary overvoltage surge. Also, it thunders very often in some regions such as Southeast Asia or Central and South America, and the high lightning frequencies increase possibilities of device damages.

Moreover, more and more networking devices have been deployed outdoor and delivered powers to devices such as IP camera and Wi-Fi hot spots.

Therefore, surges protection plays an essential role to effectively protect the devices and decrease damage rates. The devices equipped with surge protection may enable system integrators’ peace of mind and decrease possible costs of devices repairs or replacements.

Why CTS Chooses K.21 Enhanced Level (6KV) to Prevent Connected Devices from Surge Damages?

To fully protect customers’ deployed devices from surge damages, CTS adopts the test of K.21 surge protection enhanced level (6KV), with grounding installation, which approves resistibility of telecommunication equipment installed in customer premises if the surge comes from the Ethernet port. Compared with IEC-61000-4-5, K.21 enhanced level test not only takes PoE applications into considerations, but assures way better to prevent voltage fluctuations and lightning for outdoor industrial PoE applications.
