The CPI Antenna Systems Division 4.6 Meter Trifold™ is a transportable satellite antenna system, designed for use worldwide in various applications serving data, voice and communications networks.
A broad range of adjustments provides non-critical Positioner/Trailer orientation and the ability to view geostationary satellites, horizonto-horizon, from any location worldwide. The system provides high quality and dependable antenna platform, supported by the worldwide CPI Antenna Systems Division service and support network.
The electrical performance and versatility allow the ability to configure the antenna with a variety of transmitting and receive feed assemblies. This versatility provides the ability to configure the antenna with multiple linearly or circularly polarized C-band, X-band, X-band Low Passive Intermodulation (PIM), Ku-band, K-band, and Ka-band feed systems. Each feed system has been designed to be easily removable for transport.
The antenna system design consists of a spun aluminium reflector, a removable sub-reflector, heavy-duty elevation over azimuth Positioner, and an optional heavy-duty Trailer for transport.
