USS-2-AQ

EMP SURGE PROTECTOR/FILTER FOR ONE PAIR 10/100 Mbit/s ETHERNET

The Meteolabor® USS-2 series protection circuits against surge and interference voltages are designed as feed-through type mechanical units for the protection of data and control line systems. Depending on the specific application different types are available.


The highly effective multi-stage transient protection design combined with filtering components provides excellent protection against the effects of atmospheric discharges(lightning, electrostatic discharge) or a High Altitude Electro-Magnetic Pulse (HEMP), sometimes also referred to as Nuclear Electro-Magnetic Pulse (NEMP) or simply EMP.


Special features of this series of protection circuits include high surge current capability, compact feed-through
design and simple installation directly to Faraday cage.
The USS-2-Series is threat-level tested against EMP according to MIL-STD-188-125, short pulse and intermediate pulse.

 

Meteolabor® USS-2-AQ provides excellent protection for one twisted pair of a 10/100 Mbit/s Ethernet connection of sensitive electronics such as computers, telecommunication equipment etc. against the effects of lightning and EMP. Input and output are isolated by a magnetic circuit which provides best protection and filtering effect in a feed-through installation from an unprotected volume into a shielded and protected room.

For a 10/100 Mbit/s Ethernet link two pieces USS-2-AQ are required (1 piece per Rx or Tx twisted pair respectively).
This guarantees optimized protection of mission critical equipment against very fast transient overvoltages (e.g. NEMP / HEMP).

The protectors/filters have been used in many fixed installations (buildings, underground shelters etc.) as well as in portable and mobile systems like containers or shelters and vehicles, which were successfully EMP-tested according to RS105 of MIL-STD-461F.

MAK

MODULAR ATTACHMENT KIT - COMPLETE EMC SOLUTION

Protects Against HEMP/NEMP/EMP, Surge and EMI (Electromagnetic Interference).

The MAK – Modular Attachment Kit – represents a modern solution for protecting personnel and sensitive electronic equipment against the effects of HEMP/NEMP, lightning overvoltages and also electromagnetic interference. The protection functions are paired with a very high level of flexibility due to a clever mechanical concept. Modules mounted in a frame can easily be interchanged and replaced by others to obtain a very high degree of flexibility.

Designed to meet very demanding requirements of military standards or civil lightning protection regulations, the MAK is a completely universal concept. Within its mechanical boundary it is completely flexible regarding protection behavior as well as regarding choice of connectors. Based on the single PoE concept the MAK represents the best physical possibility to feed power supply, data and high frequency signals through a single entrance panel into an architectural structure like a container, mobile shelter or a vehicle.

 

The MAK system is defined as the standard for mobile systems (containers/shelters) and special vehicles of the Swiss Armed Forces. Comprehensive investigations done by the Defence Procurement Agency lead to this decision.

Shielding and EMC Behaviour : 

Properly designed modules allow shielding of a protected zone against radiated electromagnetic fields as well as against conducted transient and continuous wave disturbances. The MAK – an ideal way of implementing the single point of entry concept within a system design.

PLP SERIES

EMP SURGE PROTECTOR/FILTER 4 LINES (3L+N) 400/230V, 800 A PLP-44801, PLP SERIES

Meteolabor PLP-Series EMP Protector/Filter consist of Combinations ob coarse and fine protection stages in combination with filtering components. This guarantees optimized protection of mission critical equipment against very fast transient overvoltages (e.g. NEMP / HEMP). 

The PLP-Series is threat-level tested against EMP according to MIL-STD-188-125-1, short pulse and intermediate pulse.

Extremely high surge currents up to 100 kA (8/20μs) per line can be diverted.

For safety, a capacitor discharge resistor is built in.

 

Applications :


Meteolabor EMP-Protector/Filters protect sensitive electronics such as Computers, telecommunication equipment, controls etc. from damages due to NEMP / HEMP or lightning effects.

Radio frequency interferences are filtered by high quality low-pass filters. The filter is designed for fixed installation with permanent grounding.

Applications range from fixed military facilities (e.g. C^4 I facilities) to civilian or industrial projects requiring high reliability.

USN-80001

EMP SURGE PROTECTOR/FILTER 10/100/1000 Mb/s ETHERNET, PoE

The Meteolabor® USN-series protection circuits against surge and interference voltages are designed as feed- through type mechanical units for the protection of data and control line systems. Depending on the specific application different types are available.

The highly effective multi-stage transient protection design combined with filtering components provides excellent protection against the effects of atmospheric discharges (lightning, electrostatic discharge) or a High Altitude Electro-Magnetic Pulse (HEMP), sometimes also referred to as Nuclear Electro-Magnetic Pulse (NEMP) or simply EMP. Special features of this series of protection circuits include high surge current capability, compact feed-through design and simple installation directly to Faraday cage.

The USN-Series will be threat-level tested against EMP according to MIL-STD-188-125, short pulse and intermediate pulse.

 

Applications :

Meteolabor® USN-80001 protects all four twisted pairs of a 10/100/1000 Mbit/s Ethernet connection of sensitive electronics such as computers, telecommunication equipment etc. against the effects of lightning and EMP. USN-80001 has shielded RJ45 jacks and can be easily installed by using of-the-shelf patch cables. For best result shielded cables and a feed-through installation from an unprotected volume into a shielded and protected room are recommended.

USN-80001 also transmits up to 50V DC and can be used for PoE applications according to IEEE 802.3af.


USN-80001 protector/filter is designed to be used in fixed installations (buildings, underground shelters etc.) as well as in portable and mobile systems like containers or shelters and vehicles, which need to be EMP-tested according to RS105 of MIL-STD-461F.
