Comments about Tripp Lite DataShield In-Line Surge Protector for Network and Phone Lines 2-Line RJ11/RJ45:

I bought the DTEL2 after my home office mainline kept getting cooked. Here in sunny Florida we get the occasional lightning strike. And that occasional lightning strike fried 2 of my phones, shutting down my business for the day. Haven't had an issue since installing the DTEL2. Glorious little protector.

Comments about Tripp Lite DataShield In-Line Surge Protector for Network and Phone Lines 2-Line RJ11/RJ45:

The Dtel2 plugs in upstream from your cordless phone providing protection. If your surge protector doesn't have RJ10 protection, this product is great. Easy to install.

Easy to connect and gain peace of mind

Comments about Tripp Lite DataShield In-Line Surge Protector for Network and Phone Lines 2-Line RJ11/RJ45:

When lightning nearby sent transients in my phone service connection it burnt out some equipment, including a multifunction printer through its fax connection.

I purchased DTEL2 to block this problem at the building service entrance. It was easy to connect. I've had plenty of lightning but no equipment losses since.

Frequently Asked Questions

A surge protector will protect your electronics by acting as an “electrical sponge” by clamping down on spikes, “soaking them up” and converting the excess energy into heat, thus preventing the spikes from passing through the surge protector into the sensitive electronic devices and damaging them. As with any “sponge” a surge protector has a limited absorption capacity. Once that capacity is reached, the unit is no longer able to protect and must be replaced.
Tripp Lite Data Line surge protectors are designed to provide surge protection on Ethernet-based data lines without interfering with the signal.

The following are some reasons why interference may be found on the data line while your surge protector is installed:

    -Another device nearby is causing EMI (electromagnetic interference) or RFI (radio frequency interference) distortions through the AC line or through the air.
    -A severe surge has occurred and the unit absorbed the damage, as designed, to protect any connected equipment.
    -The unit is malfunctioning.

Follow these instructions in an attempt to identify the problem:
1. Remove the Tripp Lite Data Line surge protector from your application.
2. Connect the device that was being protected directly to the data line.
3. Test to make sure that the device is working properly without the surge protector installed. If it is not operating correctly, contact the manufacturer of the device for further troubleshooting assistance. If it is operating correctly, proceed to the next step.
4. Reinstall the surge protector between the device and the data line.
5. Connect the green ground wire on the surge protector directly to the protected equipment’s chassis (except DB9 and DB25 models). The Data Shield by Tripp Lite Network Data Line surge protector must be properly grounded and positioned as closely as possible to the equipment being protected. The length of the signal line and ground wire (if equipped) between the surge protector and the protected equipment should be no longer than 12 inches (12”). It is best to install the surge protector directly to the equipment.
6. Test the device you are protecting to make sure that it is working properly.

If you have followed these steps and there is still interference on the data line with the surge protector installed, then the unit requires replacement.
Tripp Lite Data Line surge protectors are designed to minimize the risk of surge damage that can occur through a data line, such as a telephone or Ethernet port. Please note that Tripp Lite Data Line surge protectors are only for use with Ethernet-based signals.

Here are some reasons why the surge protector is not passing a signal:

    -A severe surge has occurred and the unit absorbed the damage, as designed, to protect connected equipment.
    -The device is not installed correctly. Verify input and output connections on the surge protector are correct.
    -The device is malfunctioning.
     
If your network surge protector is not operating correctly, follow these steps to identify the problem:
1. Test to make sure that the device you would like to protect is working properly. Connect this device directly to the data port without the Tripp Lite unit in place. Make sure that the device is operating correctly. If it is not, contact the manufacturer of the device for further assistance.
2. Install the surge protector between the device and data line.
3. Connect the green ground wire on the surge protector directly to the protected equipment’s chassis (except DB9 and DB25 models). The Data Shield by Tripp Lite Network Data Line surge protector must be properly grounded and positioned as closely as possible to the equipment being protected. The length of the signal line and ground wire (if equipped) between the surge protector and the protected equipment should be no longer than 12 inches (12”). It is best to install the surge protector directly to the equipment.
4. Test the device you are protecting to make sure that it is working properly.

If you have followed these steps and the surge protector is still not passing a signal, then the unit requires replacement.
There are three common reasons why these ports may not be working properly:

    -The phone cords are not connected to the proper jacks on the surge protector.
    -The phone cords are not firmly seated in the phone jacks.
    -A surge has come through and damaged the phone board of the surge protector.


Follow these instructions to determine if the RJ11/phone jacks are functioning properly:
1. Remove the device that is plugged into the RJ11/phone jacks on the surge protector.
2. Plug the device directly into your signal source to verify that it is operating correctly. If the device is not working, contact the device's manufacturer for further troubleshooting assistance. If it is working, proceed to the next step.
3. Install an RJ11/phone cord from the signal source to the phone port (labeled IN) on the surge protector.
4. Plug the device you want to protect from phone line surges into the OUT phone port on the surge protector.
5. Test to make sure that the device is working properly.

If you have followed these steps and the RJ11/phone connectors are still not passing a signal, the unit requires replacement.
