HALO is Pleased To Announce
A New Series Of GR1089 Ethernet FastJacks™

Press Release: December, 2004

GR1089 Fastjacks

Bellcore GR 1089 intra-building lightning strike protection is now required on Ethernet ports within Telecommunications equipment at RBOCs (Regional Bell Operating Companies) in the United States demanding Telcordia compliance. HALO is pleased to announce our new series of GR1089 lightning strike protected GR-FastJack™ integrated 10/100 Ethernet connectors.

HALO has developed two different interchangeable circuits enabling our customers to achieve the lowest cost design. Both circuits are footprint interchangeable with our standard non-protected 10/100 FastJacks™. This interchangeability greatly reduces risk for our customers when the level of protection may not be known for their end customers' requirements. The HALO GR 1089 protection products can be implemented without a costly re-spin of the board by simply installing the HALO GR-FastJack™ that provides the level of protection required.

The GR-FastJacks™ are available in single (tab down and tab up), ganged as well as "Top Entry" or vertical styles.

Optional LED's are available for all circuits. Standard colors include Green, Yellow and Orange. Non-standard colors as well as bi-color LED's are also available. Production lead times are 3-5 weeks. Samples are available from stock to 3 weeks.

HALO Electronics, Inc. is a leading global supplier of communication magnetics for the LAN and WAN industries. HALO, through technology leadership, is providing next generation solutions today.
