Equipment installed outdoors and the cables that reach them can become effective conductors for surge energy produced from nearby lightning. Lightning need not make a direct strike to be destructive. Energy pulses induced into conductors during a lightning storm can cause significant damage to electronic gear.
Audio and data line surge protectors from Juice Goose can protect head end and remote equipment such as speakers, AV processors and amplifiers. Protection is available for either analog or digital components.
Data lines are conductors. Long runs of cable can become antennas for induced power surges from nearby lightning strikes. At risk are any equipment such as HDMI extenders. The Juice Goose LD-75 operates at data rates up to HDBaseT and voltages up to POE levels. With a connection to ground, this device safely diverts surges away from sensitive electronic equipment.
The LD-75 provides hybrid silicone avalanche diode surge protection for eight wire data circuits with communication rates up to HDBaseT and POE power up to 75V. It has been tested to a 1Gb transmission rate with a BERT error rating of 1.5%. It mounts to a stable flat surface and connects to building ground with a single RJ45 data line in and out.
