Factors to Consider for Outdoor and Indoor Installation of Full Band Jammers
Full band jammers are widely used to disrupt mobile phone signals in various environments. The installation location of these jammers depends on the specific requirements of the site. In this article, we will discuss the considerations for installing full band jammers outdoors and indoors, taking into account factors such as waterproofing and lightning protection.
When installing full band jammers outdoors, the aim is to disrupt mobile phone signals in open areas with a large interference range. In such cases, high-power full band jammers are usually preferred. These jammers are equipped with waterproof enclosures, which provide a certain level of protection against water ingress. As long as the enclosure is not submerged, there is generally no need to worry about water entering the internal components. However, waterproofing alone is not sufficient for outdoor installations of high-power jammers. Lightning protection measures are also necessary.
To protect the outdoor full band jammer from lightning strikes, it is recommended to weld a lightning rod to the antenna bracket. Additionally, a steel rod, approximately 2 meters long, should be inserted into the ground. One end of the steel rod should be welded to the antenna bracket or lightning rod using steel wire. This setup helps divert lightning strikes away from the jammer, ensuring its safety and functionality.
In certain specific environments where the interference range required is relatively small, low-power full band jammers can be installed outdoors in the targeted interference area. Unlike high-power jammers, low-power jammers do not require extensive lightning protection measures. However, it is crucial to prioritize rain protection. While designing low-power full band jammers, some waterproofing measures are already incorporated. However, since the enclosure is not completely sealed, its waterproofing capability is relatively weak. To enhance rain protection, a rain cover should be installed above the low-power jammer, and rainproof louvers should be placed around the jammer.
The installation location of full band jammers depends on the specific requirements of the site. For outdoor installations, high-power jammers with waterproof enclosures are preferred, along with proper lightning protection measures. In contrast, low-power jammers can be installed outdoors in targeted interference areas, with a focus on rain protection. By considering these factors, the installation of full band jammers can be optimized for different environments, ensuring effective signal disruption while maintaining the longevity and functionality of the equipment.
