Siretta Extension Cables are made from high quality components to ensure signal strength is preserved. Our extension cables use SLL200 cable which is a low loss RG58 type cable. Low loss cable is best for lengths over 5m unless a very high gain antenna is used. When connecting to an external antenna there is a risk of lightening using the antenna to dissipate the energy to ground. To mitigate against this high voltage energy entering the equipment, a ‘Surge Arrestor’ should be installed at the building entry point.
Use the same cable type on either side of the surge arrestor to minimise Return Loss due to cable mismatches.
