Do Our Antennas Require Power Or Lightning Protection?

Jul 11, 2018 | Frequently Asked Questions

Our antennas do not contain active electronics that require power and are not susceptible or vulnerable to typical lightning damage. Simply attach the connector at the end of the cable to the router and the antenna is ready for use.Lightning protection can be added at an additional cost, often far exceeding the cost of antenna and the router. Statistically the chance of lightning damage is very low, only a few cases over the last twenty years. The choice of adding lightning protection is a discretionary choice left to the customer after having considered their own risk versus cost. Adding lightning protection does not guarantee that equipment may not be damaged during a strike. Damage due to lightning is not covered by standard warranty.
