Coaxial Surge Protectors
CITEL has unveiled a new line of coaxial surge protectors for Wireless systems, Microwaves, Radios, Antennas, GPS and Satellite systems. They are ideal for the cellular-wireless industry. They provide a fast acting protection against lightning surges and electrical transients. Citel coaxial surge suppressors use a fast acting gas tube technology that makes them usable for wireless/radio, meters, RTUs and broadband applications. Many connectors are offered; N, BNC, TNC, SMA, 7/16. Citel P8AX coaxial protectors are available for any power from 1 watt to 1000 watts and any frequency from DC up to 4 Ghz.
They feature very low VSWR and insertion loss. Grounding can be done either through and external ground screw or through a bulkhead mount. Their small compact size makes them easy to install. They mount as a cable assembly or through the chassis of the equipment to be protected.
Citel RF coaxial protectors are designed to be mounted directly on the antenna as a first line of defense and also directly behind the equipment to be protected.
