Lightning Protection

Circuit lightning protection is built-in the outdoor router motherboard.

A lightning protection system doesn't attract, repel, or prevent a lightning strike. It provides an efficient grounding network with a low-resistance path to the ground for lightning's electricity.

Lightning Rod

A lightning rod or lightning conductor is a metal rod mounted on a structure and intended to protect the structure from a lightning strike. According to the traditional Franklin design, the router should be installed under a cone of 45 degrees.

Cables & Ground Rod

Use heavy cables that carry lightning current from the rods to the ground. The conductor cable is attached to the router and down to the ground rod.

Use a long, thick, heavy ground rod and bury it deep into the earth. The conductor cable connects to the ground rod to complete a safe path for a lightning discharge around the router.
