PEP Panel Array Series 470-700MHz TV Panel Arrays PEP Panel and Antenna Application Guide
The PEP broadband panel is designed as a building block for integration into complex master antenna arrays. It is a dual feed horizontally, vertically, circularly or elliptically polarised UHF panel antenna.
With a dual feed arrangement, different broadcasters sharing the same antenna can have different polarisation ratios (patented RFS VPT technology). The polarisation ratio can be changed post-installation by varying the phase shift of the combiner.
FEATURES / BENEFITS
Fully engineered for Digital TV, Mobile TV, Analogue TV, MIMO and MISO applications
Corrosion resistant construction with cylindrical fibreglass radome
Independent inputs allowing utmost polarisation and pattern flexibility
Horizontal / Vertical, Circular or Elliptical polarization
Extremely low wind loading
High power rating
Array design process allows for custom design of horizontal and vertical radiation patterns

Note 1: CaAc is calculated based on supercritical flow to ANSI/TIA-222-G. Contact a qualified structural consultant to confirm this applies to your installation.
Note 2: An effective area of 0.5 m2 (5.4 ft2) to account for lightning rod, lifting jib, etc. at top of the antenna is included. Estimated CaAc of climbing rung is 0.1m2/m height (1.0 ft2/ft height) and is not included in the calculation. Interface steelwork to tower and power divider network is not included in effective area calculations.
Note 3: Gain at 666 MHz, omni-directional configuration, first null filled to 20%.
Note 4: HPol and VPol gains shown.
Note 5: Antenna System Omni Riple: +/- 1.5 dB typical, +/- 2.0 dB max
