RFS Announces New 6 GHz Category A Antenna
November 29, 2012
Hurricanes and high winds can wreak havoc on microwave
links. Tuesday RFS announced the
of a 6 GHz Category A SB6-W60B microwave antennas with high speed wind stability.This six-foot diameter high performance antenna meets FCC Category A pattern
requirements and is available in a basic configuration (operation in 125 mph
winds) and a high-speed configuration suitable for operation in 155 mph winds.
Asad Zoberi, Area Product Manager of Microwave Antenna
Systems at RFS, said, “The launch of the SB6-W60B line of microwave antennas
offers telecom operators and tower owners an innovative solution for
challenging tower sites and achieving new levels of performance thanks to its
innovative mechanical design and superior radiation pattern. It will allow
telecom operators to reduce their CAPEX and OPEX while protecting the core
assets of tower owners. Additionally, as one of the sturdiest 6 GHz Category A
microwave antennas available in the Compact segment, the SB6-W60B excels in
harsh climates with extreme wind speeds while maintaining a compact size
designed to reduce costs and streamline installation.”
The antenna covers 5.925 to 7.125 GHz, covering the entire
7.0 GHz BAS band. A pattern
comparison with a competing antenna is available. Looking at
the RFS catalog sheet
I saw similar antennas available for other BAS microwave bands.
