Times LP-18-400-N Series (NEW)
Times Protect® LP-18-400-N Series
Cable Connector and Lightning Protector in One!
The Times Protect® LP-18-400-N series is an exceptional in-line broadband DC pass surge protection design incorporating lightning protection circuitry and the EZ-400-X series crimp style connector interface unit. This combination allowing the in-line surge protector to be attached directly to the LMR®-400 cable eliminates the cable connector needed when using conventional lightning protectors. The LP-18-400-N series protectors exhibit outstanding RF performance over the entire frequency spectrum from DC through 6000MHz and the elimination of the extra connector further reduces return loss, insertion loss and lowers cost. In addition, its fully weatherised housing meets the IP-67 standard for outdoor as well as indoor installation.
N Female connector on one side and EZ-400-X crimp style interface on the other side – bidirectional
N Male connector on one side and EZ-400-X crimp style interface on the other side – bidirectional
The LP-18-400-N series protectors install easily onto LMR®-400 cable using the standard CST-400 prep tool and either the CT-400/300 crimp tool or the HX-4 crimp handle with the Y1719 (0.429”) hex dies.
Times-Protect® LP-GTV-N Series
Times Microwave Systems introduces the new Times-Protect® LP-GTV-N series of DC pass RF lightning and surge protection products with an extended frequency operating band from DC to 7000MHz. This new bidirectional design with N type female/female or female/male connectors handles up to 150 watts of RF power and allows for up 72 volts of DC voltage to be supplied on the center pin of the coaxial cable.
The LP-GTV-N series is the perfect RF equipment protection solution for any application requiring DC voltage and current to power tower top mounted electronics. The LP-GTV-N product family is IP67 rated, suitable for outdoor as well as indoor installations and its white bronze plated housing ensures durability and long life.
Times-Protect® LP-GTV surge arrestors available are:
- LP-GTV-NFF (180Vdc/150W) DC-7000MHz GT N type F/F bi-directional, 180V
- LP-GTV-NFM (180Vdc/150W) DC-7000MHz GT N type M/F bi-directional, 180V
PoE – Power over Ethernet
Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology describes a system to pass electrical power safely, along with data, on Ethernet cabling. The IEEE standard for PoE requires Category 5 cable or higher for high power levels, but can operate with category 3 cable for low power levels. Power is supplied in common mode over 2 or more of the differential pairs of wires found in the Ethernet cables and comes from a power supply within a PoE-enabled networking device such as an Ethernet switch or can be injected into cable run with a midspan power supply.
Rojone is pleased to present our new PoE DC injector with surge protection built-in. This unit features ultra fast gas tubes and high current diodes for optimum performance. This is a must-have for all PoE devices for ultimate protection. This unit has been designed to be used with a huge variety of radio using up to 60vDC.

RF detectors are designed to convert an RF signal to a video output. The RF and microwave detector series is available in linear and log varieties. The RF and microwave detectors are available in biased Schottky and zero bias Schottky configurations and operating frequencies from 100KHz to 26 GHz. The RF detector impedance and connector options are 50 or 75 Ohm BNC and 50 Ohm SMA.
Biased Schottky diode detectors are broadband biased detectors. Pasternack RF and microwave biased Schottky diode detectors have SMA male connector inputs and SMA female connector outputs. Maximum input power for all biased Schottky diode detector components is 200mW CW. Negative output polarity is standard for all biased Schottky diode detectors
RF and microwave detectors with BNC connectors are linear and cover a frequency range from 100kHz to 1GHz. The RF and microwave detector input has the BNC male connector end, and the DC output has a BNC female connector end.
Switches, Coaxial Switching Products
R-299142-821 MCX Connector Type
RF power switching connectors are surface mountable. It is a two in one solution replacing the existing standard RF switches by integrating the switch function into the connector. This solution provides a unique means of switching between two RF signal paths. The switch is mechanically activated by mating and un-mating the connectors. Applications include Telecommunications products, wireless devices, RF power amplifiers, and any low power device requiring transmission re-direction. The main advantage is high reliability, increased board density capabilities, excellent electrical and mechanical performance and cost savings. As well as the stock MCX version, Switch Connectors are also available in N, TNC, SMA, QN, QMA and other Coaxial series.
