AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has introduced three new antenna mounting adaptors, available from Faraday . The antenna mounting adaptors are designed to allow horizontal and vertical polarisation changes during testing without the need to remove the antenna from the tripod
The three new antenna mounting adaptors have been designed to be compatible with existing AR antenna models.
- Adaptor Model AM1000 is designed for use with AT1000 and AT1000A Antenna Models
- Adaptor Model AM1001 is compatible with Antenna Models AT1080 and AT1080A
- Adaptor Model AM6000 is for use with Antenna Models T5080 and AT6080
The antenna systems each include a 20-inch non-metallic mast.
It is recommended that users purchase a new tripod along with the antenna mount as the centre of gravity is offset when moving the antenna between horizontal and vertical polarisations. The Model TP1000B tripod features a robust design and a new angle-adjustment mechanism and includes 24” and 51” interchangeable masts that allow a test height of up to 2.5 meters.
