The LinkAlign-60EBP-30 is a Power Over Ethernet (PoE) antenna positioner to maintain and automatically peak directional side arm mount antennas for millimeter wave Line of Sight links. Large Aperture High Frequency antennnas have narrow beam widths which require precise pointing and stable mounts to maintain the Quality of Service of the link. Line of Sight links often come out of alignment or become less optimized due to thermal expansion and bending of the tower, wind events, or other environmental conditions. The LinkAlign-60EBP-30 corrects for these disturbances to maintain the highest Quality of Service available without the down time and reoccurring cost associated with manual re-alignment. 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-30 can automatically peak on the highest returned value. In addition, our software comes standard with a signal threshold feature to enable peaking completely autonomously or tools to allow a user to manually peak on demand from anywhere on the network.
The LinkAlign-60EBP-30 is typically paired with 4 ft side arm mount antennas, payloads up to 300 lbs (136 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.
