RF Components & Accessories
Kintronic Labs supplies a wide range of adjustable ball or horn gaps that are utilized for lightning protection of tower base insulators or of high value RF components in a matching or multiplexed RF system. The ball electrodes are typically manufactured from brass or carbon with the carbon balls yielding faster suppression of an arc and exhibiting minimal surface impact as a result of multiple arcs. The arc gap electrodes are typically manufactured from brass. There are a range of models of ball and arc gap assemblies that we offer as as function of the maximum RF peak voltage that will typically be present at the location where the ball or arc gap will be installed.
