ABT-DFDM-ADB

Arrestor Plus® Bias Tee
806–960 MHz and 1710–2170 MHz
Combines bias tee and surge protection in one multiband unit.
ow wireless communications system designers and engineers can get multiband performance and protection from damaging lightning strikes—in a single, combined bias tee and surge arrestor. The Arrestor Plus Bias Tee allows the injection of dc current to the center conductor of the cable, allowing current to travel to the top of the tower to power the equipment. A dc isolation circuit is included for improved RF to dc isolation. In addition to providing an input port for dc power, this product protects equipment from damaging transients induced by lightning strikes. The Arrestor Plus Bias Tee provides excellent return loss across the 806–960 MHz and 1710–2170 MHz frequency bands, along with excellent

N

intermodulation distortion (IMD). The unit is ideal for both expanded systems as well as systems upgrading to multiband applications. • Combination bias tee surge arrestor • Excellent return loss • Excellent IMD • Suitable for indoor and outdoor applications • Low insertion loss • Standard SMA interface for dc injection port
