Com-Power SGTEL-168 Description:

The SGTEL-168 Telecom Surge Generator offers a single-box solution for Type A, Type B and power line surge simulations on telecommunications equipment per ACTA (formerly FCC) Part 68, ANSI/TIA-968-B and Industry Canada CS-03 standards. Type A and Type B surges are applied through the appropriate A/B/G surge output terminals (4-mm safety sockets) located on the front panel. The line(s) to be tested are connected directly to these output terminals for the test, as shown to the right. Power line surges are typically applied through the integral coupling/decoupling network (CDN), which also serves as the EUT power port. Alternatively, in cases where an external CDN is needed, the power line surge may be applied to the front panel A/B output terminals, to which the external CDN connects. The SGTEL-168 Telecom Surge Generator is equipped with voltage ( V mon [1000x1] ) and current ( I mon [100x1] ) monitor ports and sync output port. These ports can be connected directly to an oscilloscope to verify the peak voltage (open circuit) and peak current (short circuit). The sync output port can be connected to the external trigger input of the oscilloscope.

User Interface

The SGTEL-168 can be controlled remotely via its fiber optic interface and USB converter. Using the supplied TransWare-168 PC software, the user can create, save and run custom test sequences, or simply apply surges on an individual basis. Using the TransWare logging functions, the user can enter notes or comments while the test is running, such as EUT observations, which are automatically sorted chronologically with respect to the most recent surge event. The log can be exported after the test for inclusion within the test report. The SGTEL-168 is also able to be controlled locally using the control keypad and the easy-to-read backlit display on the front panel. The safety interlock port can optionally be connected to an external switch, which will automatically disable the surge generator output when the switch contacts open.


The SGTEL-168 Surge Generators are individually tuned and calibrated to meet the applicable requirements of of ANSI/TIA-968-B and Industry Canada CS-03 standards. The calibration data and certificate are provided, with NIST traceability.
