RFS 6 GHz Category A CompactLine® Antennas

RFS Debuts 6 GHz Category A SB6-W60B Microwave Antennas with High-Speed Wind Stability Up To 250 km/h


Radio Frequency Systems' latest addition to its CompactLine® series of antennas is optimized for direct mount applications and features a robust design and superior mechanical & electrical performance. The Category A compliant SB6-W60B, wind-tunnel tested and well-suited for both tight urban locations and rugged outposts, covers the full 6 GHz frequency band (5.925-7.125 GHz) and is available in both a basic and high-speed configuration.

The SB6-W60B microwave antenna addresses a significant gap in the marketplace for a light-weight, durable Category A microwave antenna that can withstand greater operational wind speeds within a more compact design, while offering more reliable frequency coordination and higher frequency re-use. Its modular design enables additional capacity requirements to be met without the cost of replacing the antenna.

The SB6-W60B is wind-tunnel tested to ensure it can withstand and remain operational under the extreme conditions of coastline and mountaintop environments. This compact antenna features a four percent reduction in its overall size compared to similar microwave antennas in the market without sacrificing performance. The antenna is available in both a 200 km/h (125 mph) configuration and high-speed 250 km/h (155 mph) configuration. Available as single- or dual-polarized models, the SB6-W60B covers the full 6 GHz frequency band. In addition, the SB6-W60B is available for direct mount applications with radios from leading microwave radio manufacturers to integrate seamlessly with the antenna and streamline deployment.
