NexTek Launches High Performance 12.5 GHz SurgeGuard™
Low VSWR and insertion loss Rugged and waterproof Maximum protection
in minimum space
Westford, MA, February 10, 2006 - - NexTek, Inc.,
a leading designer of best-in-class lightning protection and EMC / power
conditioning products and services, announces a new family of lightning
arrestors designed to operate at frequencies of up to 12.5 GHz. The
SurgeGuard™ PTC-SAx-SAF-20 is a gas discharge tube-type lightning arrestor
with SMA connectors. This PTC series is designed for use in 0-12.5 GHz
microwave applications, and provides industry-leading performance characterized
by very low VSWR and insertion loss. Compact geometries (≤36.2mm L x
16.6mm D) assure maximum protection in the minimum space.
Able to withstand harsh environmental conditions, the PTC-SAx-SAF-20
series is both rugged and waterproof. Using nickel-over-brass construction,
a gold center conductor and gold contacts, the PTC-SAx-SAF-20 meets
the most stringent military, commercial and environmental standards,
including IP67. Additional features include: normal and reverse polarity
SMA connectors, 10x multiple strike capability @ 5kA, 20 kA (8 x 20μs)
surge capability, bi-directional protection and an operating temperature
range of -40°C to +90°C.
The SurgeGuard™ PTC series of lightning
arrestors is available in various polarity configurations, and is value-priced
in OEM quantities at $40 each. For more information or a datasheet with
