Corona sockets
What are Corona sockets and when are they required?

Corona sockets are aluminum, resin-filled, potted end terminations and are factory installed. Phillystran recommends these potted end terminations for all commercial AM, FM and TV projects. Designed to protect HPTG-I from RF burning, Corona sockets are the first level of protection for HPTG-I products, with additional levels of protection required for high powered broadcasting stations. Contact Phillystran for recommendations above 10 kw. See tables for Corona socket dimensions.
