The LinkAlign-60EBP-10 is a Power Over Ethernet (PoE) antenna positioner designed from the ground up to point and automatically peak directional side arm mount antennas for microwave 70–90GHz (E-Band) links. The LinkAlign-60EBP-10 interfaces directly with several different brand commercial antennas on the market. If you don’t see your antenna listed on our Interface Control Drawing we can add it at no cost. E-Band systems have very narrow beam widths which require very precise pointing and stable masts to maintain a high quality link. Often these links come out of alignment or become less optimized due to thermal expansion of the tower, wind events, or other environmental conditions. The LinkAlign-60EBP-10 corrects for these disturbances to maintain the highest Quality of Service available without the down time and reoccurring cost due to manual realignment. Software features include an RF heat mapping tool along with a stored locations database to help with initial acquisition. Once radio signal strength is recognized, the LinkAlign-60EBP-10 can automatically peak on the highest returned value. In addition, our software comes standard with an RSSI minimum signal threshold feature to enable peaking completely autonomously or peak on demand from anywhere on your network. This can help immensely with troubled links, traditionally monopoles and roof mount systems, that can move throughout the day due to thermal expansion and cause your link throughput to diminish or fallout completely.
The LinkAlign-60EBP-10 is typically paired with 1-2 ft side arm mount antennas, payloads up to 100 lbs (45.4 kg), and offers +/-30° of azimuth and elevation range. The positioners mounts directly to poles ranging from 3 – 4.5″ in diameter. Download the Interface Control Drawing (ICD) for more details.
