I myself use them at our tower sites at the bottom AND the top. I had a tower get struck, directly and lost everything...including the switch at the location. Since then, I figured 3mil volts can go through thin cat5e jacketing. Even through the shielding if it isn't properly grounded. Now I
What brand and part number cable and connectors do you use for the CAT5E cable? -Original Message- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Eric Rogers Sent: Sunday, August 27, 2006 1:36 PM To: WISPA General List Subject: RE: [WISPA] Self Adhesive Mini PCB supports
I believe that solder is probably not a good idea here. Lightning can build enough heat to melt the solder and thus break the connection. I think all ground connections need to be physical connections to provide the best protection. Otherwise, this looks like a good method. There are
Connectors I use 010-108 from www.cablesforless.com https://www.cablesforless.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPRODProdID=794. I buy a lot of patch cables and things from them because they are fairly cheap and they are local (2 miles away). I try and promote local business when I can. I get the
I was just referring to the shielding by bonding it to the cat5 crimp on ends, not soldiering them to the tower or grounding materials. There is only a friction bond between the cat5 end and the grounded casing of the surge arrestor. I would think the friction bond would have more
I've used these guys for grounding the shield of a cat5 cable: http://www.oregonfast.net/gofast/Spruce/4460-D%20Shield%20connector-1.pdf Eric Rogers wrote: I was just referring to the shielding by bonding it to the cat5 crimp on ends, not soldiering them to the tower or grounding materials.
