L-com's New Coaxial Crimp Lightning Protectors Provide Very High Performance

Share Article

L-com has released two new coaxial lightning and surge protectors that can be crimped directly onto 400-series low-loss coaxial cable, reducing the insertion loss that would be created by plugging the lightning protector into a connector. Along with the new protectors, L-com has released a series of pre-crimped cable assemblies and has the ability to make custom cable assemblies built to length and connector specifications of the application.

If you are worried that adding a lightning protector to a coax line will cause signal loss or restrict the cable applications, we've built a solution.

L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, announced the release of two new coaxial lightning protectors designed to be crimped directly onto 400-series low-loss coaxial cable, reducing insertion loss. They feature DC to 5.8 GHz wide-band operation and are perfect for use in IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi applications.

By directly crimping the lightning protectors to the cable, technicians can reduce insertion loss while providing very high-performance protection with features such as multi-strike capability, bi-directional protection, and replaceable gas discharge tubes. In addition to the crimp protectors, L-com is offering pre-crimped cable assemblies and the ability to create custom cable assemblies with various connector ends.

"If you are worried that adding a lightning protector to a coax line will cause signal loss or restrict the cable applications, we've built a solution," said Patrick Pesa, Director of Product Development. "These products provide the benefits of lightning protection without the side effects that can impact a system."

The new protectors are being stocked in L-com's HyperLink fulfillment center in Boca Raton, FL, for same-day shipment. Cable assemblies will be made upon order in as little as 2 days or less. Datasheets, diagrams, engineering drawings and 3D CAD models are all available for free download from L-com's website.
