Coax Lightning Arrester (N and SO-239)
When installed properly in the feedline, the ANTENEX ® TRAPPER™ lightning arrester can prevent costly repairs to sensitive radio equipment due to high energy transients during lightning strikes. The TRAPPER limits surges to less than 45 volts in approximately 100 nanoseconds. A gas discharge tube changes from an open circuit to a short circuit in the presence of energy and voltage surges giving those surges a direct path to ground, thus protecting equipment.
TRAPPER is designed with a rugged, gold plated anodized housing with high quality plated brass "N" connectors and a user replaceable gas discharge tube (LA350GT). The TRAPPER comes in two models; the LABH350 which allows for bulkhead mounting and connector pass-through, and the LAIL350 which allows in-line placement.
