B+B SmartWorx BB-EIRSP1 Industrial Ethernet Surge Suppressor

B+B SmartWorx BB-EIRSP1 Industrial Ethernet Surge Suppressor Model is designed to protect all eight lines of a standard Cat5e Ethernet cable. The BB-EIRSP1 is compatible with 10/100BaseT networks and 802.11af (Modes A & B) Power-over-Ethernet ("PoE"). Mode A applies power to the data pairs, pins 1/2 and 3/6. Mode B applies power to the unused pairs, pins 4/5 and 7/8. Network connections are made using RJ-45 connectors. Grounding is accomplished using a ground lug which accepts 14AWG to 22AWG wire. Stranded or braided cable is recommended with a 1 meter maximum run to Earth Ground.
