LIGHTNING PROTECTION SYSTEMS:

We offer lightning protection services and products for broadcasting, wireless communications, utilities, fuels, and military assets, to name a few. Our products can protect structures such as antenna towers, windmills and wind farms, tanks, drill rigs, field camps, monitoring installations and many more.

LBA Lightning Dissipator Arrays replace lightning rods on most towers and structures. 

A wide variety of lightning air terminals in the form of lightning dissipators (static dissipation arrays) replace conventional lightning rods in most applications. Rather than just terminating lightning strikes and subjecting towers and antennas to high lightning currents, dissipators are effective in preventing most strikes entirely.

Lightning Mast Protection Systems offer area protection for fixed and portable assets. 

LBA’s patented PLP family of fixed and portable lightning protection masts and kits are based on light weight, rugged aluminum mast components which are sized for easy surface or air transport and rapid field installation. Installation is fast and easy. The PLP systems are designed for fast set up with only common tools.

PLP lightning mast systems are proven worldwide. They are in use to protect well field pumps, mobile satellite dishes, USAF jet fighters, construction equipment, and more.

 BROADCASTING & WIRELESS COLOCATION:

LBA Technology™ specializes in providing radio broadcasting equipment for AM and DRM medium wave stations worldwide. We design, fabricate, and market radio frequency equipment to complement AM and medium wave transmitters and transmitting plants. Our systems make AM radio towers and masts more effective and efficient.

RF systems include antenna tuning unitsmultiplexerstransmitter combiners and directional array coupling systems for the medium frequency broadcast bands at power levels up to 1,000,000 watts. Our capabilities include broadband systems for IBOC and DRM digital broadcast modes. LBA RF parts and component support includes, power inductors, mica and vacuum capacitors, copper ground system components, meters, and more. Our RF broadcast equipment has been used for over 50 years by US and international broadcasters in thousands of omnidirectional and directional medium wave AM antenna systems around the world.

Recognizing a need for readily transportable, easily deployable, and efficient radio transmitters and antenna mast systems, LBA has developed manpack and trailered medium wave AM radio systems. These are designed to fulfill emergency requirements, low power community AM broadcasting, and other missions.

LBA Technology™ has pioneered in the integration of AM broadcasters into the cellular and wireless broadband world. Our proprietary CAMI® and ColoCoil® AM colocation isocoupler systems, as well as our ColoPole® folded unipole systems allow cellular and wireless broadband antennas on AM towers and masts. The proliferation of cellular towers has created a compatibility problem for AM broadcast stations. LBA detuning systems are an industry standard to negate the impact of nearby radio and power transmission towers on medium wave radiators and coverage patterns.
