 Device description
The BAT-LAN-Protector IP68 has been designed to protect sensitive
system components against damaging transients caused by natural
events such as lightning or over voltage surges.
This data line protector has been optimized to provide high speed data
transmission, with a bandwidth up to Class D according to ISO/
IEC 11801:2002.
The protector supports Power over Ethernet (PoE according to IEEE
Interconnection is via the industrial standard RJ45 connector.
The protector is suitable for screened (STP) or unscreened (UTP) twistedpair cables.
The protector's IP 68 rating and robust construction makes it ideally suited
for use within outdoor applications or other hostile environments.
 Technical data
The BAT-LAN-Protector IP68 data line protector is designed to meet the
technical specifications when correctly installed.

 Mounting the protector
You can mount and ground the BAT-LAN-Protector IP68 either on a flat
surface or on a pole, as shown.
Figure 3: Mounting the protector on a flat surface and on a pole
 For flat surface mounting, mount the bracket (item 3) laterally on the
BAT-LAN-Protector IP68 (item 1) using screws (item 4), as shown.
For pole mounting, mount the bracket (item 3) longitudinally on the
BAT-LAN-Protector IP68 (item 1) using screws (item 4), as shown.

Figure 4: Mounting the bracket on the protector - lateral and longitudinal alignment
The protector is configured with a protected and an unprotected side.
Note: The protector is market with a red adhesive manufacturers label
saying PROTECTED SIDE which indicates the protected side.
 Align the protector to the correct orientation according to the protection
concept for the proper functionality.
 For flat surface mounting, mount the protector using two screws
(item 5) and plastic anchors.
For pole mounting, mount the protector with the worm gear clamp
(item 6).
Note: The clamping diameter range is 29 mm to 72 mm (1.14 in to
2.83 in).
 Grounding the protector
You can achieve the effective surge protection of a system by properly
bonding all relevant elements and pass-through metal lines to the ground
with active lines using surge arresters. Ground according to all national,
regional and local codes.
Note: Proper grounding is essential to ensure the specified protection
 Connect a grounding cable from the grounding facility to the
grounding M6 screw (item 2) of the protector using a ring cable shoe
(ring diameter > 6.5 mm).
Alternatively, you can mount the bracket with a screw on a grounded
metal plate.
Note: Use a sufficiently sized grounding cable (min. 16 mm2 / AWG 6) as
short a distance as possible (max. 0.5 m)
 Connecting the protector
To connect the cables, open the protector as shown. Both cable entries
are of a similar design.

Figure 5: Preparing the cable connection
 Obtain the data cables for the assembly.
 Twist off and remove the cable gland on both ends.
 Pull out the sealing gasket on both ends.
Note: The sealing gaskets are used to seal the unit prior to the connection
of the cables. The sealing gaskets should not be removed until the cables
are ready for connection.
Figure 6: Connecting the cable
 Put the cable into the sealing gasket through its longitudinal cut.
Note: The cable diameter range is 4.0 mm to 6.0 mm (0.16 in to
0.24 in).
 Push the cable end through the cable gland.
 Connect the data cable with the protector.
Note: Ensure that the cable from the equipment to be protected is
plugged into the port labeled as protected side (see fig. 4).

Push the sealing gasket into the connector.
Tighten the cable gland.
Repeat the process for the other connection end.
Insert both connectors as shown.
Plug-in the data line connector and insert the sealing.
Tighten the gland nut to the sealing insert, building a swelling of the
rubber between the nut and the cable.
Note: For a proper sealing it is essential that you tighten the nut correctly.
The following includes examples of incorrect mounting: too loosly
tightened and overtightened, as shown.
Figure 8: Proper sealing: slight swelling of the rubber
Figure 9: Improper sealing: too loosely tightened, no swelling of the rubber
Figure 10: Improper sealing: overtightened, too much swelling of the rubber
 Maintaining the protector
The BAT-LAN-Protector IP68 is maintenance-free provided that it is
properly installed, grounded and operated in compliance with its
