The SKYRAY Compact 1500 antenna system can be easily mounted at standard railings of vehicles via its 6 mounting legs. It can be used with a non-redundant HPA up to 400 Watt for breaking news or with redundant SSPAs up to 100 W each for smaller events.

Summary

 

The SKYRAY family with more than 300 systems sold world-wide is the most robust product in the market. All moving parts are completely sealed against dust, humidity and icing. It is transmitting for customers in very cold snowy regions as well as in very hot desert areas. The SKYRAY Compact 1500 antenna system can be easily mounted at standard railings of vehicles via its 6 mounting legs. It can be used with a non-redundant HPA up to 400 Watt for breaking news or with redundant SSPAs up to 100 W each for smaller events. This antenna system is best of breed regarding lifetime, wind load and pointing accuracy. The automatic pointing process is supported by high resolution resolvers and measurement of the receive signal. The amplifiers are mounted into the feed arm in order to shorten the waveguide length and to minimize the signal loss. The system will be delivered with an easy to operate ACU (Antenna Control Unit) incl. web interface.
