In life, you can’t buy safety, but you can still keep your setup safe with an RBGESP surge protector. RBGESP is a Gigabit Ethernet surge protector that can be used to protect the network from lightning or surge damages.
Here’s what a typical use-case would be like. You have a mast with some antennas and some switches on the ground. Put the RBGESP surge protectors on each end. They come sealed inside a new and improved IP67 weatherproof enclosure. Your antennas are now safe during a lightning storm.
Don’t forget the grounding wire! Secure it to the rackmount, mast, or any other structure that is connected to the ground. For maximum protection, you should use a surge protector on both ends of long cables.
These small devices can make all the difference when it comes to lightning strikes or static build-up.

The GESP units can usually absorb multiple impacts, but make sure to check their condition after each surge. For attachment of RBGESP units, we recommend using PVC zip ties. Just don’t make it too tight.You know what they say – hope for the best, prepare for the worst. This small investment can save you lots of time and money, so why risk it?
