One of the standout features of the MFJ-1704N is its replaceable lightning/surge protection pellet. This unique feature safeguards your active connector against unexpected surges and provides added peace of mind. With the centre ground position, all connectors are effectively disconnected and grounded, preventing any interference or signal loss.
When you turn the switch to an active connector, the remaining connectors are automatically grounded, ensuring a secure and stable connection. This seamless switching functionality allows you to effortlessly switch between multiple devices without any disruption.
To ensure efficient operation, it is important to meet the grounding requirements of the MFJ-1704N. A separate external ground wire must be used, which should be connected to either of the through holes on the base plate. It is necessary to remove any paint from the base plate at the point of connection to provide a good solder surface. This step ensures a solid ground connection for the lightning protector pellet to effectively fulfil its protective function.
The MFJ-1704N comes equipped with key features that make it an excellent choice for your coaxial switching needs.
