ESCS distributes NexTek Lightning
New Product Releases
Electronic Supply Chain
Solutions distributes NexTek Lightning which has launched an
Updated Very High RF Power and Very High
Transient Lightning Arrestors for 7/16 DIN Applications
The K1 device is
specially designed for High RF Power installations up to 30kW+ and The T1
device provides Long Lifetime by offering protection up to 100,000+ Amps
Both devices are rugged,
dustproof and waterproof and are tested and qualified to IP68 Standard!
products use only top-rated materials and superb construction.
In November 2012 - NexTek announced the High
RF Power K1-Series which is designed for protecting high power RF transmission
lines of up to 50,000 Watts and the High Transient T1-Series has a transient
rating to 100,000 Amps+. This new series of SurgeGuard™ lightning arrestors
addresses the stringent demands of mission critical RF applications including
the HF, VHF, and UHF frequency ranges from 0(dc) to 1000MHz.
The SurgeGuard K1-Series and
T1-Series is based on a multiple gas discharge tube design with serviceable
replacement elements. The PTR7AF7AFxxK1 and T1 arrestors measure 119mm x 45mm
and have 7-16 female to 7-16 female
connectors. The K1-Series product voltage ratings can range from 1.4kV to
3.5kV, and have a nominal impedance of 50 Ohms. This allows the K1 to pass up to 30kW or more
of RF Power.
The robust SurgeGuard T1-Series,
available in multiple voltage ratings (90V to 1000V), provides a 250x multiple
strike capability @ 10kA and a 100kA (8 x 20μs) one time surge capability. For use in 7/16 DIN applications <1GHz, ESCS
recommends this device as it provides a long surge lifetime with its 5
Specifications for both models
include excellent lightning transient protection performance using a multiple
GDT design, low VSWR of 1.20 typical, and insertion loss of only 0.1dB typical.
The K1-series and T1-series of lightning arrestors are currently
available from Electronic
Supply Chain Solutions. For more information or a datasheet with
