Balanced Operation

CT4B1FS-PTCIBAL & CT4B1S-PTCIBAL Series

Balanced Operation with Self-Resetting Current Limiters

Description:

The CT3B1FS and CT3B1S premium series of 5 pin solid state protector modules are designed to provide superior transient and power fault protection for most standard telephone line applications. The characteristics of the solid state protector are far superior to gas tube technology in speed of response to faults and are virtually immune to overshoot, aging, and repeated tripping within rated limits. The balanced configuration provides the best protection against line to line metallic surges where the transient on one side slightly lags the other. Nominal breakdown voltage for the CT3B1 FS is 240\4 while the CT3B1S is 300V.

The PTC (positive temperature compensated) versions include fast acting, self resetting current limiters. These are especially useful where extra protection against "sneak current" type faults is desirable.

Application:

The CT3B1FS and CT3B1S premium series are well suited to applications with building entrance terminals as well as central office protectors where superior protection is desired. The PTC option is recommended for protection against over current situations where the fault voltage is lower than the break over voltage of the solid state device.
