Wireless Broadband Surge Protection
The demand for high-speed wireless internet and data network access over a wide area has grown at a rapid pace. This growth has led to a proliferation of access points (base stations) and subscriber units, which are often mounted at the highest point possible to ensure the maximum communication range. Unfortunately, these mounting locations also increase the possibility of lightning-induced surges and provide a point for static charges to collect.
To help protect valuable electronic equipment from damage, ERICO has developed rugged, weatherproof hybrid surge protectors that can handle up to 25 kA of lightning-induced current. The MWE series of protectors is ideal for tower or rooftop-mounted radio units and offers high surge-protection capabilities in weatherproof enclosures.
ERICO’s wireless broadband surge protection products include:
Polymeric enclosure allows DIN Rail mounting of surge devices. Integral mounting base allows for easy installation and stainless steel hardware provides long life and corrosion resistance.
Suitable for 10/100 BaseT Power Over Ethernet (PoE)-powered base stations, subscriber units, IP network surveillance cameras or any other PoE-powered device. Rated to handle up to 25 kA of lightning-induced surge current (8/20 µs).
For use with coaxial-fed CCTV surveillance cameras. Designed to provide all-in-one protection for up to four signal lines, an AC/DC power line and a coaxial video cable. Rated to handle up to 25 kA of lightning-induced current (8/20 µs).
For use with subscriber units or PoE-powered surveillance cameras.
