Product Highlights at IBC2010
DLP Low-Power Antenna Series Making its European debut at IBC2010, Dielectric's DLP low-power antenna series features horizontally polarized antennas in a number of standard directional azimuth patterns, with an average power rating of 1.6 kW. Designed to provide broadcasters with a low weight- and wind-load system for mobile media transmissions, distributed transmission systems, and translators, the DLP features an eight-bay, single-module design. The antenna provides a single 7/8-inch input, a 1.5-degree beam tilt, and a low-profile slot cover for protection from environmental wear and tear. The DLP's simple mechanical design ensures a straightforward installation.
TUA-L Low-Power Broadband UHF Antenna Dielectric's TUA-L low-power broadband UHF antenna provides a wide impedance and pattern bandwidth that's ideal for digital broadcasting operations. As a versatile and reliable antenna, the TUA-L is ideal for single and multiplexed stations with unique pattern requirements. Designed for multiplexed digital signals, the TUA-L features excellent horizontal polarization and pattern control. Dielectric's TUA-L provides a typical VSWR of under 1.05:1 per channel and 1.1:1 across the entire 20-channel bandwidth. The TUA-L is available with customized beam tilt and null fill for multi-panel arrays. Each panel provides a Type-N input and a 500-W power rating. The antenna features a rugged design for operation in severe environments that are subjected to high winds, heavy ice loading, and lightning.
DCR-M FM Antenna Series Dielectric's DCR-M series of FM antennas is optimized for use in high-power broadband applications. The antenna's wide bandwidth and high power input capabilities are ideal for supporting multi-station broadcasting. With circular polarization, a single-bay power rating of 18 kW, and the ability to stack arrays of up to 16 bays, the DCR-M provides an input rating of up to 40 kW. The DCR-M's stainless steel construction, low ice sensitivity, and optional integrated deicer make it a suitable choice even under harsh environmental conditions. Each DCR-M is supplied with a fine matcher for field optimization. Each DCR-M antenna is available with directional arrays custom built to the needs of the station. In addition, a custom feed design allows for reduced downward radiation via shorter spacing in a series-fed configuration. Beam tilt and null fill options are available.
