Lightning And Surge Protection Of CATV Facilities (1973)

By C . Bruce Barksdale, Telecommunications Industries, Inc.

CATV facilities, generally, operate in an exposed condition to both power and lightning influence. All CATV systems require protection, not only for the system components but, also, for the connecting power service and subscriber drops. Proper application of voltage-limiting devices, such as gas tube arresters, and the proper use of bonding and grounding methods will provide the required protection.
