Lightning Mitigation Measures:

GROUNDING AND BONDING ARE CRITICAL FOR ANY LIGHTNING MITIGATION TECHNIQUE AND CAN ALSO SIGNIFICANTLY DEGRADE OVER TIME!

LIGHTNING DISSIPATOR (For lightning prone areas): Helps mitigate lightning strikes on your radome.

Surge Suppressors: If there has been a large enough known Lightning Strike, the Surge Suppressor may become unreliable and should be replaced. The Surge Suppressor that is located between the R/T (near the R/T) and the Display is Model number DLP-1904. The Surge Suppressor that is attached to the Radar Data and Control Bus at the PC is Model number Cylix DB9-RS-422. Both Surge Suppressors can be purchased through ADC.
