Type243: 2.4m Ku Band RxTx Class III Antenna

The Skyware Global Type 243 2.4 m Class III RxTx Antenna is a rugged commercial grade product suitable for the most demanding applications. The reflector is thermoset-molded for strength and surface accuracy. Molded into the rear of the reflector is a network of support ribs which not only strengthens the antenna, but also helps to maintain its critical parabolic shape necessary for transmit performance. The Az/El mount is constructed from heavygauge steel to provide a rigid support to the reflector and feed support arm. Heavy-duty lockdown bolts secure the mount to any 168 mm (6.63”) O.D. mast and prevent slippage in high winds. Hot-dip galvanizing is standard on this model for maximum environmental protection. A marinated version of the antenna is also available making it suitable for on-shore and offshore marine environments.

• All materials comply with EU directive No. 2011/65/EC (RoHS).

• Two-piece precision offset thermosetmolded reflector.

• Heavy-duty galvanized Az/El mount. marinated version includes 2 part epoxy paint finish.

• Fine Azimuth and elevation adjustments.

• HD Galvanized support arm and alignment struts. Marinated version has all galvanized steel components finished with 2 part epoxy paint.

• Factory pre-assembled mount.

• Plated hardware for maximum corrosion resistance. optional marinated version uses marine grade AISI 316 stainless steel hardware throughout.

• Includes Ku-band linear crosspolarized RxTx feed assembly.

• Heavy-duty Class III mount for 11 kg (25 lb) RF electronics (LNB & BUC).
