New SurgeGate™ Modular Rack Mount Surge Protector Offers Savings

SurgeGate™ Modular Rackmount Surge Protector Offers Savings of up to 40% in Costs, 80% in Labor Requirements

Key benefits of the SurgeGate™ Modular Rackmount surge protector include cost savings, simplified installation, and space savings.


Mix and match surge protector with 12 module capacity is unique in marketplace

CAROL STREAM, IL – ITW Linx announces the global launch of its innovative SurgeGate™ Modular Rackmount surge protector. Providing warranty-backed protection and flexibility unmatched in the market, the mix and match 12 module technology offers a wide range of benefits over conventional, fixed wall mount surge protectors. The innovative technology features industry-leading response time and can generate significant cost, labor and space savings.

Through the use of solid state technology, The SurgeGate™ Modular Rackmount ensures enhanced safety and the fastest protection time in the industry with a response time of 1-5 Nanoseconds.

Unlike standard pre-assembled surge protectors, the SurgeGate™ Modular Rackmount is the only mix and match surge protector on the market that offers six types of protection: Cat5 E-LAN, Cat5 E-POE, Cat5 E-75, Cat5 E-235, T1 and Telco CO (central office) line on a single 12 module rack.

Users can install anywhere from one to 12 modules depending on surge protection requirements. New modules can be added in the configuration and numbers needed to meet evolving surge protection needs. The ability to use one single protector for up to 12 technologies can generate cost savings up to 40%. Because the single rack comes with a common grounding wire, there is no need to ground each of the individual modules, leading to up to an 80% reduction in installation time requirements. The single grounding wire also helps minimize grounding errors in the installation of multiple surge protectors, further enhancing technology safety.

The SurgeGate™ Modular Rackmount is also the only warranty-backed product of its kind that is UL 497 listed and tested to TIA (Telecommunications Industry Association) standards- providing the greatest possible protection against expensive downtime and equipment damage.

• Campuses: schools, office parks
• Financial facilities: banks, retail stores
• Medical: hospitals, doctors offices

ITW Linx Dramatically Increases Smart Protection Throughput

Carol Stream, Illinois – February, 2007 – ITW Linx has more than doubled throughput capacity of their U.S. manufacturing operations as a result of strong customer response to their 66 block protection. “UltraLinx™ 66 block protector” growth continues to accelerate,” says Richard Halliday, Business Unit Manager at ITW Linx. “This generation of smart 66 block protectors is so feature rich and cost effective that sustained growth mandates that we add additional manufacturing lines. We made the decision to add manufacturing in the U.S. because we are committed to delivering the highest quality surge protection with the shortest time to market possible. With our increased capacity, we are now able to ship the top selling UP3 part numbers the same day as we receive the order.”

The UltraLinx line has the unique feature of including two LEDs in each protector. These LEDs provide indication that the protector is functional and that the ground has been bonded properly during installation. “Our customers told us that one of the greatest issues they face, particularly in 25 pair and larger installations, is having to test every pair when a line goes down. That ends up being time consuming and costly. With UltraLinx, should the protector sacrifice itself to protect the connected equipment, the protector tells you which lines need attention, reducing downtime and trouble call time.”

UltraLinx 66 block protectors use solid state technology with the fastest response time in the industry. They also come is a wide range of voltages to protect communications lines, including analog, digital, VOIP hybrid, paging and even low voltage cameras. UltraLinx has both fused and self resetting technology to offer the total protection package. They are UL Listed for both Primary (UL497) and Secondary (UL497A) applications.
