Data Line Surge Protectors
Times Microwave Systems has recently introduced a new range of Data Line Surge Protectors. These products offer a unmatched level of data integrity and over-voltage protection, the LP-DOE-1G, LP-POE-1G and LP-PAE-100 Data Line surge protection devices are the newest additions to the Times-Protect® product family. Proprietary circuitry results in surge let-through voltage on data lines of less than 20V peak at 3kA 8x20uS surge test current and less than 10V peak at 100A 10x1000uS surge test current, while complying with extended RFC2544 test methods for data integrity. These extremely difficult tests are conducted on two protection devices separated by 100 meters of Cat 5e cable over a broad temperature range measuring these parameters:
- LP-DOE-1G 1000 BASE-T ETHERNET DATA ONLY – 1000 Base-T / Indoor application with all data pin protected to chassis ground
- LP-POE-1G 1000 BASE-T POWER OVER ETHERNET – Power Over Ethernet, 1000 Base-T with up to 60Vdc injector. All pin pairs protected to chassis ground
- LP-PAE-100 100 BASE-T POWER AND ETHERNET – 00 Base-T with all pins protected to ground. Data pin pairs are (1-2) (3-6) and DC pin pairs are (4-5) (7-8)
The RFC2544 test results for each of these outstanding devices are available for download on the Times Microwave Systems website.

The LP-GTV-T series is the perfect RF equipment protection solution for any application requiring DC voltage and current to power tower top mounted electronics. The LP-GTV-T product family is IP67 rated, suitable for outdoor as well as indoor installations and its white bronze plated housing ensures durability and long life.
- LP-GTV-TFF (TNC Female/Female connectors – 180Vdc/150W)
- LP-GTV-TFM (TNC Female/Male connectors – 180Vdc/150W)
- LP-GTV-RTFF (RTNC Female/Female connectors – 180Vdc/150W)
- LP-GTV-RTFM (RTNC Female/Male connectors – 180Vdc/150W)
Lightning Protection – Data
Data line lightning & surge protectors are used to protect sensitive equipment from lightning strikes and surges on the Ethernet data lines. With the introduction of faster standards like 100 and 1000 Base-T Ethernet, faster data speeds require the equipment manufacturers to use sensitive high speed components that require protection.
Designed for Cat8, Cat5e and Cat6 applications, we have a range of data line protections available in different power leaves. From low power modules typically used for hubs or client installations, to high power, 3 stage protection use for maximum surge protection.
One of the latest editions to this range is our 19” rack mounted 4, 12 and 24 port Cat5 or CAT6 10/100/1000 Base T Surge protectors with RJ45 connections affordably priced.
In addition to data line protection, we can also offer protection for your telephone, DSL, T1, RS422/485, RS232, 4-20mA Current loop, AC/DC and video applications.
Times-Protect® LP-SPT™ RF Lightning Protection Tester Now Available!
The new and unique Times-Protect® LP-SPT™ RF surge protection tester has been added to growing line of innovative surge protection products offered by Times. The LP-SPT™ provides the user with the capability to test virtually any lightning protection device or component to ensure its proper functioning and capability to protect critical and expensive RF equipment. Weighing only 16 ounces and powered by two 9 volt batteries, the ruggedised hand-held unit is completely portable making it ideal for field use.
The LP-SPT™ unit has two terminals, N male and N female, to support testing of the most popular in line RF surge protection devices and can easily test RF surge protectors with any other interfaces by using commonly available RF adaptors. At just 9” x 4” x 1-1/2” the slim LP-SPT™ unit comes complete with a heavy duty nylon carrying case, batteries, easy-to-follow instructions and a set of custom alligator clips to allow testing of surge protection components such as MOV’s, diodes and gas tubes. Made in the USA, the LP-SPT™ has a list price of $875.00 and is available through the extensive Times global distribution network.

Times LP-18-400-N Series (NEW)
Times Protect® LP-18-400-N Series
Cable Connector and Lightning Protector in One!
The Times Protect® LP-18-400-N series is an exceptional in-line broadband DC pass surge protection design incorporating lightning protection circuitry and the EZ-400-X series crimp style connector interface unit. This combination allowing the in-line surge protector to be attached directly to the LMR®-400 cable eliminates the cable connector needed when using conventional lightning protectors. The LP-18-400-N series protectors exhibit outstanding RF performance over the entire frequency spectrum from DC through 6000MHz and the elimination of the extra connector further reduces return loss, insertion loss and lowers cost. In addition, its fully weatherised housing meets the IP-67 standard for outdoor as well as indoor installation.
N Female connector on one side and EZ-400-X crimp style interface on the other side – bidirectional
N Male connector on one side and EZ-400-X crimp style interface on the other side – bidirectional
The LP-18-400-N series protectors install easily onto LMR®-400 cable using the standard CST-400 prep tool and either the CT-400/300 crimp tool or the HX-4 crimp handle with the Y1719 (0.429”) hex dies.

PoE – Power over Ethernet
Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology describes a system to pass electrical power safely, along with data, on Ethernet cabling. The IEEE standard for PoE requires Category 5 cable or higher for high power levels, but can operate with category 3 cable for low power levels. Power is supplied in common mode over 2 or more of the differential pairs of wires found in the Ethernet cables and comes from a power supply within a PoE-enabled networking device such as an Ethernet switch or can be injected into cable run with a midspan power supply.
Rojone is pleased to present our new PoE DC injector with surge protection built-in. This unit features ultra fast gas tubes and high current diodes for optimum performance. This is a must-have for all PoE devices for ultimate protection. This unit has been designed to be used with a huge variety of radio using up to 60vDC.
