POTS or Plain Old Telephone Service is commonly referred to as standard phone lines or analog lines.
These are the familiar circuits and lines
used by business and homes primarily for voice communication. This leads to the
general classification of voice grade. Today, it's considered an older technology.
However, data, fax, internet and other types of communication still depend on this technology. Even though the technology is considered somewhat outdated, it continues to be heavily used and is very reliable.
The reliability and reasonable cost of the Plain Old Telephone Service can be seen, to a small degree. as an advantage over newer types of communication systems.
In addition, POTS lines are still available in most areas and largely available in rural locations.
Regardless of the use for this type of communication line, it's vulnerable to transient voltage activity. These lines should be protected as they provide a direct pathway for expensive equipment to be seriously damaged. The primary culprit for serious damage comes in the form of direct, indirect or nearby lighting strikes.
The best option is to protect the telephone line near or at the service entrance of the building with the installation of a properly designed Surge Protective Device (SPD). This installation location helps mitigate the chance the surge moves beyond this point and further into the structure.
It's the best protection option for saving business phones, home phones, computer systems or other line connected communication equipment from serious or catastrophic damage. A second SPD nearest the sensitive equipment is recommended for additional protective measures. This provides an additional second level of protection per IEEE recommendation.
High Performance SPDs are series wired, parallel connected, hybrid designs. Units incorporate True All-Mode Protection and utilize industry leading Optimal Response Circuitry™.
Suppression circuits are encapsulated in a patented, Electrochemical, high dielectric compound. This assures long component life, protection from environmental factors, vibration and improves device performance.
Connection methods available include:
DIN rail mounts available, providing an additional SPD installation option.
High Quality, High Performance units are backed with industry leading 25 Year No Hassle Warranty.
The best surge protection options secure POTS systems functionality and reliability. Leading SPD designs are backed with 30 years of design and field experience and supported by the industry's most experienced staff.
