Model: 232HSP

RS-232High Energy

Surge Protector CE

Overview

The Model 232HSP is designed to help protect against lightning strikes, power surges, and other types of voltage disturbances. Pins 2 through 8 and 20 are protected on a DB-25style connector with a final clamping voltage of approximately 15 volts. The 232HSP offers three stages of protection starting with a gas discharge tube followed by a series resistor and finally a Transient Voltage Suppresser (TVS). In order for a surge protector to work properly it is important to have a good connection to earth ground. The 232HSP offers two terminal posts and two metal mounting brackets that can also provide for a good ground connection for the user. Pin 1 of theDB-25connectors is connected to the metal box through the terminal posts. The 232HSP has been tested to two specifications at 6 kilovolts, IEC1000-4-5:1995 “Surge Immunity Test” and IEEEC62.41-1991“IEEE Recommended Practice on Surge Voltages inLow-VoltageAC Power Circuits”. To ensure the best protection of your equipment some simple connection guidelines should be followed.

Connections

1.The 232HSP should be located as close as possible to the equipment being protected.

2.A good ground connection must be made between the 232HSP and earth ground. This can be done with the two terminal posts on the top of the unit or the two mounting brackets.

3.The earth ground connection should be kept as short as possible for best performance. As a recommendation a minimum of 10 gauge copper wire at no more than 3 feet should be used. If it is not possible to achieve the short distance a braided cable made specifically for grounding purposes should be used.

4.The chassis ground of the equipment should be connected to the buildings 3 prong plug ground.
