What is an ethernet surge protector?

An ethernet surge protector is a type of device that is used to protect equipment against the effects of a voltage spike. It essentially works by limiting the amount of voltage that can be delivered to an electrical device, such as a computer, making sure that it stays within a safe limit. They can also be known as ethernet surge suppressors.

Instead of simply plugging devices in directly, an ethernet surge protector acts as an effective intermediary between the broadband cabinet or panel and your devices.

Essential protection for any workspace

A surge protector protects network equipment against damage caused by power surges such as voltage spikes and lightning strikes.

Don't risk expensive repair costs and downtime

Ethernet surge protectors are an essential piece of equipment in any office or workspace, where devices are all connected to the same network. Many people believe it's only power cables that need to be protected against electric surges but data cables need to be protected too.
