Lightning Surge Protectors: A Great Insurance for Signal Boosters
- 21 Aug, 2019
Placed between the outside antenna and amplifier, should lightning strike your outside antenna, the lightning surge protector will discharge any power surge, saving you hundreds if not thousands of rands of equipment.
And when paired with a quality surge protected power strip of at least 1000 Joule rating, you'll have the ultimate peace of mind especially if you live in an area with frequent thunderstorms since tall metal objects (like the outside antenna) have a higher tendency to be magnets for lightning strikes.
Lightning surge protectors come in two types: a 75 Ohm and a 50 Ohm version.
The 75 Ohm is compatible with RG-6 and RG-11 cables fitted with F-Female connectors. Basically, these are normal coaxial cables found in most homes and residential areas and used for cable/satellite TV and internet routers.
The 50 Ohm is compatible with Bolton400 or LMR400-like cables fitted with N-Female connectors. These are pro-grade cables. Much thicker and more powerful (less signal loss) with longer cable run.
Please be aware of your cable connector type before purchasing a lightning surge protector.
