Lightening Surge Protector. 50ohm with N Female connectors. Designed to protect sensitive electronic equipment such as a cellular signal booster systems from damage due to excess voltage for currents generated by transient phenomena (lightning or static build-up).
Wilson Electronics 50ohm Lightning Surge Protector with N Female connectors. Gas surge arrester designed to protect sensitive electronic equipment such as a cellular amplifier from damage due to excess voltage for currents generated by transient phenomena (lightning or static build-up).
Wilson's Surge Protectors are gas surge arresters. They are designed to protect sensitive electronic equipment (such as a power booster or repeater system) from damage due to excess voltage for currents generated by transient phenomena (lightning or static build-up).
Replacement Gas Discharge Elements are available if a surge occurs.
The life of the Arc-Plug™ Cartridge is a function of the surge current amplitude and duration to which the device is subjected. Transients are by their very nature unpredictable in magnitude and energy level. 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 active near-miss lighting 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, using 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 insure that the competed installation is weather proof, ensure that 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.)
