This active antenna allows Iridium users requiring an installation with long cable runs to use a lower-grade, more-flexible cable. Ideal for most cable runs between 150 and 500 feet. These extended cable lengths offer the ability to provide Iridium installations on ships and land where previously an Iridium solution could not operate.
The new AD-511 replaces the older series AD520-10 & AD510-10 models.
AD-511 Iridium Active Antenna is designed to allow Iridium installations with up to 160 meters of coaxial RF cable, without any degradation of performance, compared to only 30 meters maximum for a standard passive antenna device
AD-511 Iridium Active Antenna is supplied without coaxial cable as standard, but allows pre-set lengths between 27 and 160 meters subject to use of the correct, AST identified coaxial cable. (Main antenna coax cable not included).
HIGH QUALIY ACTIVE ANTENNA
AD-511 provides extreme ruggedness and reliability, manufactured from an anodized hard aluminum bottom case and a pressure molded GRP radome to provide a sealed, dust and water resistant antenna.
SPECIAL NOTE: Use of the incorrect cable at the specified length or shortening of the cable supplied can damage the antenna and invalidate the Manufacture warranty.
