RFS unveils new five-sided horizontally polarized panel antenna
Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) has introduced a new five-sided horizontally polarized panel antenna, which the company will feature at IBC2008, Sept. 12-16 in Amsterdam.
The new PHP 5S panel array delivers advanced levels of horizontal radiation pattern (HRP) performance. Engineered for DTV applications, the new PHP 5S panel antenna supports multiple channel operation over the entire UHF band (470MHz to 860MHz).
The new PHP 5S antenna, which incorporates RFS’s dipole design and a new winged back screen, delivers omni-directional HRP performance across the entire UHF band. Not only does the antenna deliver more uniform coverage, it also allows improved HRP modeling and prediction, which is particularly advantageous for data-intensive DTV broadcasts.
The new five-sided PHP 5S panel antenna features high-power handling capability (up to 5000W for the dual-input version), enabling it to support a large number of services in a multichannel system.
