Announces a Major Breakthrough in Surge Capability @ 6 GHz
at no sacrifice to 6 GHz RF Performance Miniature, ruggedized, dustproof and waterproof
Westford, MA, June 25, 2007 - - NexTek, Inc.,
the leading designer of best-in-class lightning
protection and EMC / power conditioning products and
services, announces the expansion of the E-Class Series
designed for optimizing RF performance at frequencies up
to 6 GHz. The E-Class Series sets new, breakthrough surge
performance standards to 6 GHz, provides bi-directional
protection and is also characterized by passing DC
without any performance degradation. This
ground-breaking family of ultra-compact SurgeGuard™
lightning arrestors is specifically developed to meet
the stringent demands of emerging RF applications
including Ultra Wideband, Wi-Fi, WiMAX ground
penetrating radar, surveillance, high speed
communications systems, 5.0 - 6.0 GHz UNII, MMDS, WLL,
IMS bands, public safety 4.9 GHz and HiperLAN.
The ultra-compact SurgeGuard E-Class Series is based
on a gas discharge tube design packaged in two small
geometry form factors designated PTCONFSAF09E and
PTCONxONF09E. The miniature PTCONFSAF09E arrestors
measure only 42 mm x 24 mm, have N-type to SMA-type
connectors and can deliver a maximum of 30 W (48 dBm) of
RF power at a maximum through-current of 5 A. The
PTCONxONF09E arrestors measure only 50 mm x 24 mm, have
N-type connectors and can deliver a maximum of 30 W (48
dBm) of RF power at a maximum through-current of 10 A.
All E-Class Series products include a 90V gas
discharge tube and exhibit a nominal impedance of 50 Ω.
Additional specifications include excellent lightning
transient protection performance, low return loss (VSWR),
top-rated materials, superb construction and are
designed to be both waterproof and dustproof (IP68
Standard). The robust SurgeGuard E-Class Series provides
a 10x multiple strike capability @ 5 kA and a 20 kA (8 x
20 μs) surge capability.
The E-Class Series is available with a variety of
connectors including N(Female)-N(Female); N(f)-N(m);
N(f)-SMA(f). The E-Class series of lightning arrestors
is currently available and is value-priced in OEM
quantities starting at $33 each. For more information or
