Fast Microwave Antenna Alignment Optimization

The Path Align-R™, models 2200 and 2240 test set, is a high performance, affordable and complete test solution designed to quickly and accurately optimize the transmission path between two microwave antennas within minutes. The Path Align-R test set is completely outfitted with everything needed to align a microwave link and communicate between sites with distances up to 100 miles (161 km). Because the Path Align-R™ directly drives the site's antennas, the link alignment process is completed without the need of the radios, expensive and complex test equipment, ground technicians, on-site AC power, cell phones, or additional two-way radios.

Technical Notes and Briefs

More Info
An antenna system whose link frequency is designed outside the frequency band edge of the Path Align-R can still have its path alignment correctly adjusted, as long as the antenna system uses a waveguide which can operate at both the link frequency and a nearby frequency covered by the Path Align-R.
