D-Link Ethernet Surge Protectors Beat Competitors in Surge Test

DPE-SP110 and DPE-SP110I surge protectors are the only devices out of 11 total from various manufacturers to pass the surge test conducted by Nlightning Technology

November 08, 2018

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – November 8, 2018– Out of 11 total devices surge tested by Nlightning Technology, the D-Link DPE-SP110 and DPE-SP110I surge protectors were the only ones to pass the IEC 61643-21 and ITU-T K.21 tests, D-Link announced today. All of the other surge protectors failed to protect the networking equipment from electrical damage, proving the D-Link surge protectors’ effectiveness in preventing damage caused by sudden electrical surges and electrostatic discharges.

“A surge protector’s main job is to protect both the networking equipment and remote devices connected to it,” said Steven Olen, director of product marketing, D-Link Systems. “If it can’t do that, then every device connected to it either directly or indirectly is at risk of damage.”

According to Nlightning Technology, lightning strikes caused approximately $740 million dollars worth of damage in 2014, and lightning can affect devices as far away as 300 miles from the initial strike.

The outdoor DPE-SP110 and indoor DPE-SP110I can provide powerful protection for switches, IP cameras, access points and other networking devices, as they can ensure continuous, non-interrupted service and reduced downtime and maintenance costs—even in harsh environments. Both use a durable metal design and feature 10kA Impulse Discharge Current to help ensure stable protection.
