Pulse Electronics Corporation (NYSE: PULS), a leading provider of electronic components, introduces a central office (CO) VDSL2 splitter module with optional lightning and power fault protection. The module is designed with 6 pins, instead of the standard 4 pins. This enables a protective device, such as a sidactor, to be added on the board underneath the module and eliminates the need for a separate protection rack card, freeing up space for an extra multichannel card or to increase airflow for additional cooling. The pin location allows a fast-acting secondary over-voltage protector to be used to protect the filter from surge effects while maintaining good VDSL2 performance. The location may also help to meet ITU and Telcordia coordination requirements with any installed primary protectors, enabling selection of suitable secondary protectors to accommodate different countries and markets.
“Adding surge protection is becoming increasingly necessary as protection standards evolve, and being able to reduce the splitter module size is important as component density increases,” explained Ronan Kelly, Pulse Electronics broadband product manager. “Pulse’s new CO splitter module offers the customer a product to address these needs.”
