Lightning strikes are the most typical cause of system outages or failures of mast-mounted equipment, especially when mounted as high as 300m. Therefore, lightning protection is critical to minimize the potential for damage. Cambium Networks strongly recommends that all PTP 650 installations should be deployed with the PTP-LPU. Network operators should always follow best-practices for grounding and lightning protection. Doing so will minimize network outages and reduce the associated costs of tower climbs and equipment repair/replacement.

The PTP Lightning Protection Unit offers two protection methods: line-to-line and line-to-ground. This ensures that a surge in current induced onto the PTP 650 cabling is diverted away from the ODU. When installed correctly with the recommended grounding practices (i.e. using solid shielded CAT5e cable), the PTP-LPU quickly shunts the excess current to ground (typically within five nanoseconds). By grounding the power surges before they can harm the units, the Cambium Networks PTP-LPU provides radios the best protection from the harmful effects of lightning. The PTP-LPU’s connections and enclosure are designed for IP 66/67 water and dust protection so they can be installed in the most difficult terrain and environmental conditions.
