Pasternack has launched a new series of coaxial surge protectors created to protect costly communications equipment from power surges and indirect lightning strikes.


The company's new surge protectors are offered with either male to male or male to female 4.3-10 connectors and provide VSWR as low as 1.12:1, low insertion loss, maximum input power up to 500W, a surge current rating of 20kA, multi-strike ability, and the lowest claimed let-through energy in the industry.


Furthermore, these devices support a frequency range of 698MHz to 2.7GHz and are CE and RoHS compliant. They are IP67-rated for outdoor use, provide low-PIM performance and are ideal for employment in cellular base stations, Wi-Fi networks, active antenna systems, public safety networks, and GPS applications.


“Our new 4.3-10 RF surge protectors were designed with proprietary surge technology that enables quick responses to lightning and power surges to protect critical hardware while maintaining high RF performance. Also, to address the urgent needs of our customers, these surge protectors are available off-the-shelf with same-day shipping,” said Dan Rebeck, product line manager.
