C3B1E & C4B1E Series

Balanced Operation - Heavy Duty with self-Resetting Current Limiters



 

 

Description:

The C3B1E-BAL and C4B1E-PTC/BAL premium series of 5 pin, 3 element protector modules are designed to provide superior transient and power fault protection for most standard telephone line applications. The common chamber, 3 electrode gas tube provides true balanced operation. An over voltage on either side of the circuit enables the entire tube to ionize which provides a simultaneous path to ground for both sides of the circuit. This grounding prevents a second arriving transient on the opposite side to pass through to the equipment. Nominal breakdown voltage for the 3B1E/4B1E series is 350VDC.

Features:

bulletheavy duty surge handling capability 
bulletsuperior common chamber design 
bulletUL and cUL listed 
bulletintegrated test points 
bulletdesigned to meet or exceed Belcore standards 

 

Benefits:

bulletrugged, dependable operation
bulletfewer service calls than the 2 element designs
bulletprevents damage by "lagging" or sneak transients
bulletdocumented safe performance
bulletnon-radioactive
bulletISO9002 certified manufacturer
