PEPL64D
470-700MHz UHF TV Panel Arrays
PEPL (PEP-Lite) Series

The PEP-Lite broadband low wind load antenna has dual inputs and is capable of horizontal, vertical, circular or elliptical polarisation. The PEP-Lite broadband array is ideally suited to the broadcaster who requires maximum flexibility now and into the future. These antennas are also suited to MIMO and MISO operation. Ideal for use by a single broadcaster, or multiple broadcasters as a shared antenna, PEP-Lite antennas use RFS patented VPT technology. Different broadcasters sharing the same antenna can have station specific polarisation ratios which can be changed post-installation by varying the output phase of the combiner.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • Fully engineered for Digital TV, Mobile TV, MIMO and MISO applications
  • Corrosion resistant construction with cylindrical fibreglass radome
  • Single/independent inputs allowing utmost polarisation flexibility
  • Horizontal / Vertical, Circular or Elliptical polarization
  • Extremely low wind loading
  • Standard and hurricane rated options
  • High power rating
  • Array design allows a variety of horizontal radiation patterns; Option to modify vertical radiation pattern characteristics in the field must be specified at time of order

Notes

Note 1:  CaAa 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 CaAa 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.
