3.5m Ku-, K- and Ka-band Earth Station Antenna

EARTH STATION ANTENNA
3.5 Meter ESA
Like all ASC Signal earth station antennas, the 3.5 Meter 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 electrical performance and exceptional versatility provides
the ability to configure the antenna with your choice of linearly- or
circularly- polarized 2- or 4- port combining networks. That versatility
is provided at the time of initial purchase, as well as in the future, as
your satellite communication requirements evolve.
This antenna system is used worldwide in broadcast applications
and high density data, voice and communications networks. The
ASC Signal 3.5 meter earth station antenna features a computeroptimized precision one-piece spun aluminum reflector with a
uniquely designed dual optics Gregorian sub reflector tracking
system which eliminates the need for costly jack drives and large
motors while a motorized mount is also available.
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.
Features
• 3 year warranty on all structural components
• Ka Band Capabilities
• Single Piece Main Reflector
• Bonded and riveted torsion box for rigidity
• Heavy mounting ring for strength
• Advanced dual reflector Gregorian optics
• Sub reflector closed loop positioning for precise pointing
accuracy
• Compliant to ITU 580-5/465-5, FCC 25.209
