New Lightning Protector for Broadband Wireless and Satellite Applications
Now available from Smiths Interconnect â€“ PolyPhaser is the new MDS+24-F-F lightning protector, designed for broadband wireless and satellite applications from 300 to 2500MHz. Offering low throughput energy and multi-strike capability, Polyphaserâ€™s new lightning protector delivers industry leading RF performance.
The MDS+24-F-F utilises a cascaded (multi-stage) protection circuit resulting in low let-through voltage (48Vpk) and throughput energy (1000µJ for 3kA at 8/20µs waveform). It also provides very low insertion loss of just 1dB. RF power is 50 Watts.
The new device will pass telemetry frequencies of 10 kHz to 150 kHz and 10 MHz to 100 MHz. In addition to the RF, the unit will pass up to 24Vdc to power up amplifiers and other tower top electronics. The MDS+24-F-F lightning protector comes with 75 Ohm F female connectors and is flange mountable.
PolyPhaser was founded in 1979 and became part of Smiths Interconnect division in 1997. PolyPhaser is the leading provider of quality RF Lightning Protection and grounding solutions to the Wireless Communications Market. The Companyâ€™s integrated system solutions encompass lightning and surge protection, grounding solutions to divert surges from communications equipment via entry panels, and a wide range of protectors for broadcasting, cellular, microwave, satellite, PCS and WLL applications.
Unlike other cable manufacturers with limited product lines, who try to fit customer applications to their existing products, the philosophy of TMS is to select or design the right product for the application, resulting in an optimal and cost effective solution.
