Like all CPI antenna system division 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 Low Earth Orbit tracking for 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 combining networks and an optional conical scanning feed. That versatility is provided at the time of initial purchase, as well as in the future, as your satellite communication requirements evolve.
The antenna reflector is used worldwide in broadcast applications and high-density data, voice and communications networks. The CPI antenna system division 3.5 meter earth station antenna features a computer-optimized precision single or two-piece spun aluminium reflector with a dual optics Gregorian sub-reflector.
This reflector is designed for ease of installation even at Ka or higher band without need for reflector adjustment, optimization or specialized tools.
The reflector is installed on an EL/AZ or X-Y positioner, providing high output torque with low backlash, covering 360° continuous with slipring azimuth and -+5° to +185° elevation range.
This combination provides extremely accurate surface contour resulting in exceptionally high gain and closely controlled pattern characteristics. CPI antenna system division earth station antennas provide maximum durability with minimal maintenance.
