TELEPHONE GAS STATION PROTECTOR MODULES



TII 355 MAXIMUM DUTY
TII 356 HEAVY DUTY
TFS® TOTEL FAILSAFE® THREE-ELECTRODE GAS TUBE SURGE PROTECTOR MODULES
(Patent No.4,212,047)

UL Listed CSA Certified REA Accepted

The totally encapsulated TFS® Totel Failsafe ® modules protect against both longitudinal and metallic surges by grounding both sides of the pair simultaneously when a surge arrives on either side of the pair. After the surge is cleared the protector resets to its normal high impedance condition. If a power-cross or other condition results in excess current flow for an extended period, the thermal failsafe system grounds the line safely and permanently. Backup airgaps are included to insure protection in the rare instance that the gas tube has vented.

TFS® modules are available in Maximum or Heavy Duty ratings to cover a complete range of telecommunication requirements. They are supplied as a basic component of TII station protectors and as replacement items. Individual modules contain a No.10 binding post for each side of the protector pair and a ground strap for connection to a ground post. Ground connection should be made with minimum resistance in accordance with best practices as specified for the intended application. Specifications for the TII TFS® modules are given below.

Dimensions: 0.75" x 0.63" x 2.13"
Weight: 2.2 oz.
