RPDL2-19-N Quad Polarised, Prime Focus Reflector Antenna
mWAVE Industries LLC (mWAVE) recently completed a comprehensive engineering, development, testing and first article build of a 1.400 – 2.400 GHz – 2-ft. (0.6-m) Quad Polarized, Prime Focus Reflector Antenna. This innovative antenna design utilizes a single RF input configured to H, V, RHCP, and LHCP polarizations by means of a switch network mounted in a weatherproof enclosure located near the antenna. The switch network is controlled remotely by a PLC based control system housed in a second enclosure. The two enclosures are linked by a 130-ft. (40-m) long control cable enabling the antenna and the switch box to be mounted far up a tower. The system is commanded by means of a simple web browser GUI using a standard PC. Communications between the PC and PLC happens over standard TCP/IP Ethernet network enabling the possibility of remote operation over a private LAN or even a WAN / internet. The PLC system also offers the capability to integrate the antenna control system with other control systems for fully automated operation.
