General Specifications
   Device Type       
   Your choices are...         
   SPD       Surge Protection Devices (SPD) protect against a temporary excess voltage and/or current in an electrical circuit that has been disturbed. 
   Dataline and DC Signal       Dataline and DC signal surge suppressors protect equipment from transient overvoltage present on data or DC signal lines. 
   Single Phase       Single-phase surge suppressors protect equipment from transient overvoltage present on single-phase AC power lines. These surge suppressors are not plug-in style devices. 
   Three Phase       Three-phase surge suppressors protect equipment from transient overvoltage present on three-phase AC power lines. These surge suppressors are not plug-in style devices. 
   Plug-in Style       Plug-in style surge suppressors plug into wall outlets to protect equipment from overvoltage transients 
   Lightning Arrestor       Lightning arrestors are used to protect equipment from surges produced by lightning. 
   Coaxial Surge Suppressors       Coaxial surge suppressors have a coaxial connector form factor. They are used to protect RF equipment and related products.

   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Technology       
   Your choices are...         
   MOV       Metal oxide varistors (MOV) have high-energy capabilities, good reliability, and consistent performance. They also have a non-linear clamping curve and fatigue rapidly at higher amperage levels. 
   Silicon Avalanche Diode       Silicon avalanche diodes have high clamping voltages, but a limited power-handling capacity that is destroyed easily by the power levels encountered in typical power-line surges. Silicon avalanche diodes are used most often in data-line protectors and on circuit boards as static protectors. 
   Silicon Thyristor Diode       Silicon thyristor diodes are used mainly to protect telecom systems. 
   Gas Tube       Gas tubes have higher energy capabilities than either MOVs or diodes. They typically consist of two electrodes held at a close distance so that high voltages between the electrodes simply arc through the air to effectively clamp the voltage. Gas tubes are very slow, but can handle very large surges. 
   Hybrid       Hybrids attempt to incorporate all the major advantages of many of the individual components, while collectively overcoming their individual faults. 
   Other       Other, less commonly used technologies include spark gaps, selenium, and Zener diodes.

   Telecom Applications       Surge suppressors are used to protect telecommunication lines and telecommunications devices such as fax machines, modems, and telephones. 
   Audio and Video Applications       Surge suppressors are used to protect audio-visual (AV) equipment such as cable TVs, rooftop antennas, or down-line TVs. 
   Medical Facilities       Surge suppressors are used to protect medical facilities.

Performance
   Maximum Surge Current       Maximum surge current is the maximum current allowed for a single impulse waveform with a continuous voltage applied. This value indicates the protection capacity of a particular surge suppressor design, and is used in specifying a product for a given application. A higher-level surge current capacity is required for a high-exposure application where there are very large transients present from lightning. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Clamping Voltage       Typically, the surge suppressor's DC clamping voltage is much less than its AC clamping voltage for multiple outlet-type spuds (< 300 for phone and < 35 for TV). 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Number of Protected Lines       The number of protected lines is the number of "pairs" or lines protected from surges. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Operating Temperature       The full required range of operating temperature. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
