Multiport SIDACtor Device
The multiport line protector is an integrated multichip solution for protecting multiple twisted pair from overvoltage conditions. Based on a six-pin surface mount SOIC package, it is equivalent to four discrete DO-214AA or two TO-220 packages. Available in surge current ratings up to 500 A, the multiport line protector is ideal for densely populated, high-speed line cards that cannot afford PCB inefficiencies or the use of series power resistors.
SIDACtor devices are used to enable equipment to meet various regulatory requirements including GR 1089, ITU K.20, K.21, and K.45, IEC 60950, UL 60950, and TIA-968 (formerly known as FCC Part 68).
