The AL6-NFNFBW-9 from L-com is an In-line Gas Discharge Tube-based Surge Protector that operates from DC to 6 GHz. The unit features a bulkhead N-Female connector with a rubber "O"-ring seal for mounting through an enclosure wall or using the optional stainless steel mounting bracket. It has an insertion loss of less than 0.6 dB and VSWR of under 1:1.2. The device has a gas discharge breakdown voltage of 90V.
Due to its excellent RF performance, this unit is ideal for IEEE 802.11a and other 5.2 - 5.8 GHz ISM and UNII applications, as well as 3.5 GHz WLL applications. Since this protector will pass DC it is suitable for applications where DC is carried through the coax cable such as remote amplifiers and LNAs. Both connector ports of this unit are equally protected. This provides protection no matter which way it is installed. Either port can face the antenna and either port can face the equipment.
The surge protector measures 2.6 x 0.9 x 1.2 inches and is available with an N-female to N-female bulkhead connectors. A ground lug and terminal is provided directly on the lightning protector housing, which provides superior grounding. Replacement gas tubes are available (LPX090-6) as well as an optional stainless steel mounting bracket (HGX-LPMOUNT01) on request.
