Mimosa Surges Protector NID
NID, Mimosa Gigabit Network Interface Device with ESD Surge Protection and Grounding Point for C5 installation
The cost-effective Mimosa Gigabit Network Interface Device (NID) protects electrical systems from ESD (electrostatic discharge) surges. It’s designed for exterior wall mounting, providing outdoor technician access, ESD protection, and a grounding point for all radio installations. With a rugged IP54 rating, it has a dust and water-resistant design with a foam cable entry seal and a security fastener tie point.
Since Mimosa radios already have GDTs (Gas Discharge Tubes) for suppressing ESD, the Mimosa NID adds additional protection for electrical systems. This means higher reliability for WISP operators and fewer service calls. It’s also an ideal solution for areas that require installations to meet certain, local code requirements.
In just a few minutes, a NID can be mounted, installed, and connected. A shielded CAT 6 or 6A Ethernet cable goes into the NID, and then another CAT 6 or 6A Ethernet cable goes inside the house, or to the bottom of a tower, into a PoE injector. A 14 AWG or larger wire goes from the NID and connects to a ground rod.
