PAD8-59AC
TrunkLine Antenna, Standard (FCC 101, Cat A) , Single Polarized, 8 ft

RFS Microwave Antennas are designed for microwave systems in all common frequency ranges from 4 GHz to 24 GHz. This allows the use of antennas in areas where extreme wind conditions are normal. The antennas utilise a conventional feed system and are available in three performance classes offering complete flexibility when designing a network. Standard Performance antennas are economical solutions for systems where side lobe suppression is of less importance. These antennas are required for use in networks where there is a low interference potential. Antennas are available in 2 ft (0.6m) to 12 ft (3.7m) diameters. Antennas from 4ft up to 12 ft (3.7m) can be equipped with a moulded radome to reduce wind load and to protect the feed against the accumulation of ice and snow.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • Field-proven reliability and long life
  • Withstanding winds up to 200 km/h (125 mph), an optional sway bar is available for added assurance in case mistakes are made during installation
  • A single-piece configuration and compact packaging to reduce transportation costs
  • Frequencies ranging from 4 GHz to 15 GHz with support for two wideband frequency ranges (5.725-6.875 and 7.125-8.5 GHz) to reduce antenna requirements and simplify logistics
