APC ProtectNet standalone surge protector for 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet lines
The majority of all surge-induced damage is caused by surges and spikes traveling along unprotected data lines. These surges originate from a wide variety of sources, including static charge buildup and lightning strikes.
Left unprotected, your data lines expose network cards, A/V components, modems and other network equipment to damaging electrical transients. The ProtectNet family of stand-alone surge suppressors protects individual data lines, including telephone and network lines, coax cables, and more. Inserting a ProtectNet in your data line and connecting it to earth ground prevents back-door surges from ruining your productivity and costing you money.
APC's state of the art circuitry offers protection for sensitive electronic equipment against larger surges and multiple surge events. Additional features like plentiful outlets, status indicator LEDs and more make this our best value for surge protection - our lifetime Equipment Protection Policy guarantees it.
Catastrophic Event Protection: SurgeArrest components such as MOVs and Thermal fuse ensure instantaneous reaction to lightning strikes and wiring faults. If the surge components are damaged due to power spike or over voltage, excess power cannot reach your equipment. Unlike the APC SurgeArrest products, most surge suppressors continue to let power through even after circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to other damaging surges.
Data-line Protection - Protection of data lines (Ethernet, Coaxial and Phone lines) ensures complete protection of your equipment from surges. It is very important to protect your equipment from “back door” surges traveling through data lines, as they can be as damaging to your equipment as surges traveling over power lines.
Fail Safe Mode - Most other surge suppressors continue to let power through even after their circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to future surges. APC’s SurgeArrest fail safe, which means that once the circuit of an APC SurgeArrest has been compromised the unit disconnects equipment from the power supply ensuring that no damaging surges reach your equipment.
Lightning and Surge Protection - To prevent damage to your equipment from power surges and spikes.

Complete Security for Ethernet and LAN Network Devices
The PNET1GB Surge Protector, part of APC's ProtectNet series, offers complete protection to your 10/100/1000 Base-T networks and Power over Ethernet (PoE) systems in the event of unexpected surges in voltage from lightning, wiring faults, or utility problems.
IEEE Let-Through Rating of 60 Volts
Boasting an IEEE let-through rating of 60 volts, the PNET1GB is designed to prevent more than 60 volts of electricity from reaching your equipment. Since higher let-through rates can increase the risk of damage to your electronics, the 60-volt rating of the PNET1GB indicates that less voltage may strain and hinder the performance of your system.
Instantaneous Response Time
The PNET1GB is built around a metal oxide varistor (MOV), which instantaneously diverts excess surge voltage to the ground. Because it responds in under a nanosecond, the MOV can keep your equipment running while providing complete surge protection.
Fail-safe Feature Offers Additional Protection
A thermal fuse works in conjunction with the MOV to cut the unit's connection to electrical current if it reaches a certain temperature. This means that even if the MOV is damaged by an overwhelming surge, the thermal fuse acts as a fail-safe feature, disconnecting your equipment from the power source so that excess voltage is unable to reach your network.
