Wideband versions with superior common-mode current rejection.
1/1 Potted 3 kW Current BALUN for Wire Antennas, Beams or Rotary Dipoles.
” So much more than an of the shelf BALUN “
Mainly intended for feeding wire dipole antennas, multiband trap dipole antennas, rotary dipoles and beams with a feed point impedance between 25 and 100 Ohms.
Drastically reduces coaxial cable sheath currents, thus avoiding RF feedback during transmission.
Ensures that in RX mode, common-mode noise originated in your environment is effectively isolated from the signal path.
Also available as Line Isolator for deployment at any place along the coaxial feedline.

From August 1st 2018 on, all BALUNs are built into UL508A certified polycarbonate enclosures provided with flanges for convenient installation .
1/ Version for wire antennas, with central eye bolt on top, (Suspension on central support recommended) and two side installed eye bolts for strain relief of the antenna wires.
2/ Same version as (1), but without eye bolts, with provisions for installation on the boom of a beam or on a top mast below a rotary dipole.
