Title: PCB based protector cartridge

Abstract: A protector cartridge circuit arrangement which permits more robust line protection. The circuit arrangement has high-capacity and large-sized components staggered across the surface of a printed circuit board such that high-capacity components can be used in the cartridge to protect plural, adjacent lines. Such devices cannot be used in pair-at-a-time protectors because of space constraints. A preferred industrial application is the protection of communication lines.
