Small part, big impact!
Triple protection against excessive voltage on antenna cables to protect your receiver. High current pulses caused by nearby thunderstorms will be dissipated.
The OVP1000 protects in three ways against surges on the antenna line:
- Antenna side: A gas discharge tube with 60V firing voltage, max. pulse leakage current 1kA (8/20µs)
- On the RX side: An ultra-fast ESD diode (30KV; max. pulse power 350W (8/20µs)
- Additionally, DC voltages up to max. 100V are blocked at the input and output.
Frequency range: 200Hz – 1GHz (type 1 dB insertion loss.)
Coax connectors: BNC
Without replaceable cartridge, the system is completely replaced. Not waterproof.
Made in Germany
Overvoltage protection OVP1000 in practical use
I inserted the 1000 inline while listening to Old Time Radio on 6770 AM, on my beverage. Not only did it decrease clipping without attenuator inline, it eliminates the DC clips with attenuator engaged!!! I can say from experience, the OVP1000 is reasonably priced, protection device that offers no noticeable insertion loss of signal & obviously drops the induced static… Read the Article in the Bonito Newsroom
Please read carefully and Disclaimer:
The OVP 1000 is no protection of the antenna line against direct lightning strike, since lightning always seeking the shortest way to ground, which does not necessarily take place via the coaxial cable. Therefore, the protection function is limited to overvoltages and potential differences between coax ground (shield and inner conductor). Therefore, a liability for connected devices is generally excluded! When not in use, absence, broadcasting or lightning storms this should be disconnected from the receiver to prevent damage from the antenna line!
