Abstract : ;ECOM-4027DA-1-S-662703-A-0561-S-662703-A-05601(*communication equipment, *suppressors), lightning arresters, semiconductor devices, integrated circuits, digital systems, data transmission systems, transientsThis report describes the development, test, and evaluation of protection for Balanced Digital Transmission Devices (BDTD) against the destructive effects of direct and indirect lightning surges and other foreign potentials. The report includes a discussion of voltage surges on transmission lines, surge protectors, examples of existing protection techniques used successfully in specific systems, and a description of the surge test equipment. Test data obtained on performance of the developed protection installed in the BDTD package, and protection criteria for the BDTD power supply are presented in detail. (Author)
