DEHNbox TC 180
The arrester is optimised for use at telecommunication connections and devices such as analogue telephones as well as ISDN and VDSL2 connections. With a cut-off frequency of 250 MHz, the arrester is also capable of transmitting high-frequency signal parts and can thus be used at high-performance signal interfaces. As an alternative, DEHNbox TC 180 can also be installed at measuring and control interfaces up to a voltage of 180 V and a maximum current of 750 mA.
DEHNbox TC 180 allows fast connection of one pair without tools and fixing of the connecting cable (integrated strain relief) on the printed circuit board by means of cable ties. The connection space in the box and the position of the terminals ensure optimal conductor routing and easy conductor connection.
DEHNbox with actiVsense technology
This arrester type does not have a specific nominal voltage and can thus be used for voltages ranging from 0 to 180 V with a superimposed signal voltage (± 5 V/50 MHz). The nominal current is limited to 100 mA which is sufficient for information technology systems. This innovative actiVsense technology allows the arrester to detect the signal voltage applied and to automatically adapt the voltage protection level to this voltage. This makes the arrester ideal for applications where changing or slowly fluctuating signal levels (≤ 400 Hz) are to be expected. In case of interference, DEHNbox arresters have an adapted voltage protection level for every signal voltage, thus providing maximum protection for the devices and system circuits connected to them. The four-pole version of DEHNbox provides protection for two different balanced interfaces, e.g. a bus interface with a system voltage of 5 V and an analogue measured value signal with a system voltage of 24 V.
The arrester is ideally suited for domestic and industrial use in information technology transmission systems such as telecommunication, bus and measuring and control systems.
