Quarter Wave Surge Arrestor 7-16 DIN male / female bulkhead, 690 to 2700 MHz

Rev : I | Rev date : 30 Nov 2023

Surge arrestors are designed to protect wireless base stations, switching centers and transmission lines from the damaging effects of extreme high voltage surges caused by lightning strikes. The RFS lightning protection devices are designed and tested to the most demanding specifications. They are rated to protect against both direct and indirect multiple strikes in the harshest environments imaginable. Their rugged construction utilizes solid metal housing, and superior plating, which results in outstanding system protection and operating continuity.


  • Superior IM performance for reliable long-term operation
  • Excellent electrical performance, low VSWR, low insertion loss
  • Waterproof to IP68
  • Totally maintenance free
  • Compliant to RoHS (EU 2002/95/EC) and CRoHS (China SJ/T11363-2006) i.e. usable on a global basis.
