The fuse is a glass fuse. It comes with a 7 amp fuse installed but you can change to whatever you want.

Looking at 16awg, 330ft runs, so thinking about 56v power supply at 2 amps. Will this be a good surge protector? Obviously it will work great for lightning, but my questions are. At 7amp clamping is that ok or too high if we get a short on the cable? Can I just install these at the base of the tower, I really don’t want to install them at the top too? I am looking at using shielded pairs with a drain wire, you agree? Would I want a fuse block with a 2 to 3 amp fuse in case of shorts. I am pretty sure I want to run a superior essex cable that has 4 pairs in one jacket, each pair shielded with a drain wire, than all pairs shielded again with a drain wire. I know this is a lot of questions, but you never seem to let me down. Thanks, Craig. Craig R. Schmaderer CEO | Skywave Wireless, Inc. Ph: 402-372-1975 | Fax: 402-372-1058 Direct: 402-372-1052
