Wilson Electronics 50ohm Lightning Surge Protector with 2 Foot LMR-400 Patch Cable.
Wilson 859902 50ohm Lightning Surge Protector with 2 Foot patch cable. Use to connect a Wilson 400 Ultra Low Loss cable and a surge protector to an antenna with N Female connector. The signal attenuation for this surge protector is less than 0.2db.
Install the Lightning Surge Protector (LSP) close to the signal booster. Attach the cable from the outside antenna to the surge protector. Use the included 2-foot low loss cable; Attach one end to the surge protector and the other to the outside antenna connector on the signal booster. Attach a ground wire to the surge protector.
NOTE: This is a 50 Ohm surge protector. For 75 Ohm surge protectors with F connectors for 75 Ohm Systems (like the SignalBoost DB Pro) use Part# 859988 75 Ohm Lightning Surge Protector.
Replacment Gas Discharge Elements are available if a surge occurs.
Wilson's Surge Protectors are gas surge arresters. They are designed to protect sensitive electronic equipment such as a power booster or repeater amplifier from damage due to excess voltage for currents generated by transient phenomena (lightning or static build-up).
Life may be hundreds of operations, depending on surge current wave shape. After a sufficient number of lighting pulses have been discharged through the Cartridge, there is a gradual lowering of breakdown voltage and insulation resistance. Therefore, cartridge replacement is indicated by an increase in VSWR during transmitter tune-up, or by a "dead" receiver caused by an extremely strong near-miss lightning discharge shorting the cartridge. In this case, the short continues to protect the equipment until cleared.
Where To Install
Install the Lightning Surge Protector (LSP) close to the signal booster. Attach the cable from the outside antenna to the surge protector. Use a short length of low-loss cable. Attach one end to the Surge Protector and the other to the outside antenna connector on the signal booster. The Surge Protector is bi-directional, so it doesn't matter which end goes to the antenna or amplifier. Attach a ground wire (Up to 10 Gauge) to the Lightning Surge Protector to a grounding bus or point where the equipment to be protected is grounded and as close to the equipment as practicable. Be sure and check local (county, city, etc.) electrical code requirements for their grounding requirements. Most require a 10 or 12 gauge copper wire from the surge protector to a grounding rod. Use up to a 10 gauge with this Lighting Surge Protector. The depth of the grounding rod will be based on your local department code requirements.
NOTE: To ensure that the completed installation is weather proof, make sure the mating coaxial connectors are sealed using proper materials and procedures.
NOTE - Not For 75 Ohm Systems: This is a 50 Ohm surge protector with N Female connectors. For 75 Ohm systems use a 75 Ohm surge protector with F Female connectors (on RG-6 cable). Use with 75 Ohm Systems like the weBoost Connect 3G & 4G, weBoost Home 3G & 4G, Wilson Electronics SignalBoost DP Pro and Wilson Electronics AG Pro 70 Signal Booster and most zBoost systems.)
