8.1m Extended Azimuth Earth Station Antenna

EARTH STATION ANTENNA
8.1 Meter Extended Azimuth ESA
Like all ASC Signal earth station antennas, the 8.1Meter Earth Station
Antenna provides high gain and exceptional pattern characteristics.
This antenna system is designed to address the stringent requirements
of both the television broadcast industry and telecommunications
network operators who demand unsurpassed flexibility and electrical
performance in high-quality, cost-effective, and reliable packages.
The 8.1m antenna is offered with an extended AZ motorizable mount
allowing 200o travel coverage. This antenna can be provided with
the NGC motorization and/or the ASC Signal Sub-reflector tracking
system SRT for Ka band application. The combination of the NGC
and the SRT tracking system can allow the tracking on up to 6 axis.
The electrical performance and exceptional versatility provides
the ability to configure the antenna with your choice of combining
network. That versatility is provided at the time of initial purchase,
as well as in the future, as your satellite communication requirements
evolve.
Features
• Rugged aluminum and steel construction
This antenna system is used worldwide in broadcast applications
and high density data, voice and communications networks. The
ASC Signal 8.1 meter earth station antenna features a computeroptimized dual reflector Gregorian optics system and close-tolerance
manufacturing techniques.
• Superior Pointing Accuracy
This combination provides extremely accurate surface contour
resulting in exceptionally high gain and closely controlled pattern
characteristics. ASC Signal earth station antennas provide maximum
durability with minimal maintenance.
• Monopulse Tracking Capabilities for Ka-Band
• Advanced Gregorian optics
• 3 Year Warranty on all Structural Components
• >200o Continuous Azimuth Travel Range
• Deep Equipment Enclosure
• Low PIM Capabilities
