APXVBL15S-C-A20
Dualband X-pol Antenna, 698-960/1710-2690 MHz, 65deg, 15.0/17.4dBi, 1.5m, VET, 2-14/2-12deg, External ACU 

A combination of two X-Polarized antennas in a single radome, the RFS dual band antennas are designed for applications requiring a minimum number of antennas at a cell site and reduced tower loading.
They are ideal to combine LTE700, LTE850, GSM/UMTS/LTE900 with DCS/LTE1800, W-CDMA/ LTE2.1 or LTE TDD/FDD 2.3/2.6 networks, where high gain is required with a good compromise in antenna length.
These antennas are especially well suited for MIMO applications.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • Ultra broadband design
  • Two X-polarized broadband panels in a single radome - reduced tower loading
  • Variable electrical downtilt — provides enhanced precision in controlling intercell interference. The tilt is infield adjustable 0-12deg on low band and 0-10deg on high band
  • High Suppression of all Upper Sidelobes
  • Optional remote tilt - can be retrofitted
  • Dual polarization
  • Low profile for low visual impact
  • Quick and easy to adjust
