Solid parabolic microwave antennas
RFS’ advanced solid parabolic antenna range incorporates multiple antenna sizes (1 to 15ft), supporting all frequency bands between 3.6 and 80GHz. These single or dual-polarized solutions are available in three different performance classes: high, ultra-high and high Cross Polar Discrimination (XPD) performance.
The industry-renowned FLEXWELL elliptical waveguide can achieve the radio-to antenna link in a single run, directly from the equipment building to the tower mounted antenna. Designed to support microwave frequency bands from 3 to 40GHz, it is available in various sizes and types, and two different categories: Standard – Cost-efficient solutions for low and medium-capacity radio relay systems and Premium – Low VSWR waveguide for high capacity radio systems.
Elliptical waveguide, air dielectric coaxial and rigid line should be pressurized with dry air or dry inert gas in order to prevent moisture condensation and the resultant degradation in electrical performance and possible damage to the transmission line. Radio Frequency Systems offers a comprehensive range of dehydration systems designed to meet both the technical and economic needs of our global customers.
Waveguide Connectors & Accessories
RFS supplies a complete line of high quality, premium performance elliptical waveguide connectors. These connectors provide a low VSWR transition to a rectangular waveguide interface. RFS waveguide connectors are machined with a multi-step transition from elliptical to rectangular cross-section. This multi-step transition results in a compact design with superior electrical performance. Connectors are available with either EIA or IEC flange interfaces.
FLEXWELL® waveguide connectors are designed for quick and easy assembly in the field using either standard hand tools or flanging tools depending on connector type. FLEXWELL® elliptical waveguide connectors are available in standard (non-tuneable), tuneable pre-tuned and fixed tuned versions. Fixed tuned connectors are available only with pressurized flanges (P-type). Unpressurized flanges (U-types) can be provided by the use of a shim.
While a number of cable related accessories are available on the market, RFS components are of the highest quality and are designed to provide years of trouble-free service. RFS offers all necessary tools and accessories for a complete cable system, such as:
- Grounding kits
- Installation tools
- Flanging tools
- Wall / Roof Feed Through
