GDT lightning arrestor

10 October 2018 Circuit & System Protection

Nextek announced the release of a new gas discharge tube (GDT)-type lightning arrestor with N-type male to N-type female panel mount connector. The PTCONFSAF09E is fitted with a replaceable protective element, and the coaxial arrestor operates from DC to 3,2 GHz.

The device has enhanced RF performance with a typical VSWR of only 1,35 and an insertion loss of only 0,25 dB in an extremely compact design. The PTCONFSAF09E has a multi-strike capability of 10 strikes at 20 kA or a single strike of up to 50 kA. The unit features high RF power, low PIM and a through current of 65 V d.c. at 10 A.

The PTCONFSAF09E has a rugged waterproof design and it offers bidirectional protection. It is used by several military manufacturers and communication networks to protect sensitive communications systems and air navigation systems.
