Surgender provides the most economical and easy to install surge voltage protection available.
This unique product from PDI will protect all types of coaxial cables connected equipment from damage caused by lightning induced or man-made voltage surges on the coaxial cable.
Ideal for protecting
CATV Converters and Decoders
Video Cassette Recorders
Home Entertainment Centers
Video Cameras and monitors
Computer Local Area Networks
Surgender performs a different function than UL grounding requirements. The Surgender protects equipment from nearby lightning strikes. UL grounding requirements for coaxial cables protect people from hazardous voltages that may come into contact with the shield of the coax cable.
Because of the physical length of ground wires, UL grounding systems may appear as an open circuit to lightning caused, high frequency surges and provide no protection from these surges getting into a home and destroying CATV converters, television sets, video cassette recorders, etc...
