Inquiry: Does a roof-mounted multi-band antenna need to be grounded for lightening or surge protection?
We recently had a client reach out to us about an antenna that would work well for their Panasonic Toughbook 20. We had recommended the GJ-RSF-DB-G4W-TTT antenna because of its ability to handle the connections being broadcasted and received in rural areas with its optimization for combing 1575 MHz GPS, 698-2700 3G/4G/LTE cellular data communication and 2.4 / 5 GHz WIFI/WLAN. They then went on to ask whether the antenna would need to be grounded for lightening or surge protection. Fortunately, they do not need to be grounded because the antennas are encapsulated in a plastic housing and isolated from the vehicles’ metal surface.
