CITEL America manufactures surge protectors for AC power, telephone and RF coaxial lines. CITEL America's surge suppressors are designed to protect telecom/datacom equipment against lightning surges and electrical transients.

CITEL is now the world's third largest manufacturer of surge arrester gas tubes. All CITEL Gas Discharge Tubes use non-radioactive ceramic technology. They are ideal for the protection of Telecom and Datacom equipment against lightning surges and electrical transients. They are available from 75V to 1500V. New SMD versions are now available and all Gas Tubes are UL approved.

Citel America, Inc.

Citel America, Inc.Citel is also a major supplier to the wireless industry and has developed a complete surge protection package for AC power, T1 and coaxial cables. Today's data equipment has become extremely vulnerable to voltage surges and transients. A single IC package can contain over 100,000 memory bits and more than 5,000 logic gates. The high sensitivity of the chips used in these packages makes them prone to fast degradation due to voltage surges. Their small size has considerably lowered their failure threshold. PLCs, MUXs, HUBs, RTUs, SCADA, and Telemetry equipment are especially vulnerable to electrical surges because of their sensitive low voltage data lines.
