L-com has added new 2-port indoor wall-mount lightning and surge protectors to its current CMSP series line.

The new 2-port protectors are designed for a variety of applications including Ethernet Cat 5 and Cat 6, telephone/DSL, and coaxial video. Like the existing 4-port versions of these products, the 2-port units are designed to protect sensitive equipment from lightning strikes and power surges.

Additionally, L-com's new CMSP-VIDEO-2 and CMSP-VIDEO-2I models for video applications are billed as ideal for protecting surveillance and CCTV cameras, DVRs, surveillance PCs and video monitors connected to 75 Ohm coaxial lines.

Specifically, according to L-com, all of the newly released 2-port device models are as follows:

CMSP-CAT5-2 -- 2-Port 10/100 Base-T CAT5 Protector
CMSP-CAT6-2 -- 2-Port 10/100/1000 Base-T CAT6 Protector
CMSP-CAT6T-2 -- 2-Port 10/100/1000 Base-T High Power CAT6 Protector
CMSP-DT-2 -- 2-Port High Power Telephone/DSL/T1 Protector
CMSP-VIDEO-2 -- 2-Port Coaxial Video Protector
CMSP-VIDEO-2I -- 2-Port Coaxial Video Protector w/ Isolated Connectors

"The CMSP series can be easily installed on a wall or shelf and feature replaceable protection modules," comments Ken Burgner, product manager at L-com. "The cost is relatively low for these protectors, when compared to the cost to repair or replace expensive network equipment damaged by electrical surges."
