Telecommunication networks are exposed to lightning events. Therefore telecommunication equipment being connected to the outside world need to have appropriate protection to show an acceptable immunity to surge transients in order not to fail in case of lightning events. Telecom Surge Simulators of the TSS 500N series are used to proof the immunity of telecommunications equipment.
The EM Test TSS 500N10 is used to perform tests as per EN/IEC 61000-4-5 and related standards and complies with the requirements of ITU-T and FCC 97-270 (part 68) for Surge B pulse. It also generates the Surge voltage pulse 1.2/50us as per EN/IEC 60950. The TSS 500N10 can also accommodate telecom standard Telecordia GR-1089.
