L-com has developed lightning and surge protectors that are pre-mounted in stainless steel wall plates, designed to mount to standard in-wall electrical/conduit boxes.

L-com has developed lightning and surge protectors that are pre-mounted in stainless steel wall plates, designed to mount to standard in-wall electrical/conduit boxes. The company says the products offer an aesthetic solution to lightning and surge protection in homes and offices where, previously, providing protection required mounting the protector on a wall or shelf and running extra cables to and from the protector.

L-Com says the new product is intended for new construction and buildings with existing in-wall Ethernet and telephone/DSL wiring. The four new items include protection for Cat5, Cat5e, and Cat6 lines, shielded or unshielded, as well as telephone, DSL, and T1 lines. The new Cat5, Cat5e, and Cat6 protectors are PoE compatible. The telephone, DSL and T1 protectors feature superior three-stage protection using a Thyristor diode technology.

"Providing protection from lightning and electrical surges is crucial to home and business owners," comments Patrick Pesa, Director of Product Management at L-Com. "But running extra wires and mounting a large protector is not acceptable in many situations. The new WP series allows customers to safely and aesthetically protect their electronic equipment."
