CA-antennas are typically IP67 water and dust proof due to unique lightweight but robust mechanical construction where all the electromechanics are moulded inside of closed cell PU-foam and glass fibre or ABS-plastic covers.
The dielectric loading caused by water, snow and ice on the surface of the radiator is minimized by enclosing the radiator within a dielectric radome. The relative thickness of the dielectric is bigger at high impedance parts of the radiator.
Thin tapered radiators have integrated impedance compensation for optimum combination of small physical size and wind load combined to a broad bandwidth with excellent VSWR-characteristics.
The feed point is DC-shorted protecting the devices connected to the antenna circuit.
Integrated RF-choke prevents the unwanted feedline radiation.
CS-power splitters provide a practical way for 1 to 2 power splitting when combining multiple antennas or building up a cable harness.
No additional jumper cables or connectors are needed as CS includes it all minimizing the amount of junctions and losses.
Three CSs can be easily cascaded to provide 1 to 4 splitting ratios.
CA and CS together makes the whole system modular and flexible enabling the easy creation of different antenna arrays. Some of the arrays are available as ready made applications but only the imagination limits the amount of different applications with different antennas, spacings, orientation and phasing. We would be pleased to assist you to model and design the array to fit your needs.
LP-lightning protectors are maintenance free enabling continuous communication without need for service or replacement. This makes the difference compared to fuse like operating lightning protectors.
Female to male connector interface enables easy insertion also to already existing installations.
LP has a M8 cable lug for proper grounding.
The center and outer conductor are DC shorted and on the same ground potential.
The quarter wave construction makes LP to behave like a band pass filter cancelling also even harmonic frequencies.
LR is a lightning rod support extending the length of the antenna mast so that the antenna can be mounted on the top and still the whole antenna structure can be enclosed within a protective cone.
Lightning rod collects the strokes of lightning, not the antenna.
LR enables the use of continuous copper down lead (1x16 mm2 ... 2x25 mm2) from the very top to the ground.
No junctions! Junctions are the weak points of down leads.
