Re: Re-Use Existing Antennas for PTP820

Allen,

 

So if a project calls for re-using existing RW dishes, but we want a remote mounted radio, what parts would be required for converting from Dragonwave radios? Speciffically on the antenna side.  I know the PTP820 Remote

Mount kits.

Re: Re-Use Existing Antennas for PTP820

if the antenna provide standard flange, we can always go with remote mount for PTP820, then use flexible waveguide to connect PTP820 radio to the antenna port.

 

Here is a list of SKUs you may need for PTP820 Remote mount

 

The PTP820S and PTP820G RFU-C share the same mount bracket. For 6-13 GHz, an adaptor is required as the Radio flange is proprietary. 

N060082L003A PTP 820 RFU-C ADPT 6GHz Remote Mount Adpator - UDR70
N070082L002A PTP 820 RFU-C ADPT 7_8GHz Remote Mount Adaptor - UBR84
N110082L002A PTP 820 RFU-C ADPT 10_11GHz Remote Mount Adaptor - UBR100
N130082L002A PTP 820 RFU-C ADPT 13GHz Remote Mount Adaptor - UBR120
N000082L121A PTP 820 RFU-C Pole Mount kit

 

 

N000082L120A PTP 820C DC REMOTE MOUNT KIT
N060082L002A PTP 820C 6G  Remote Mount adaptor - UDR70
N070082L001A PTP 820C 7-8G Remote Mount adaptor - UBR84
N110082L001A PTP 820C 10-11G Remote Mount adaptor - UBR100
N130082L001A PTP 820C 13G  Remote Mount adaptor - UBR120

Re: Re-Use Existing Antennas for PTP820

Allen,

 

Two Last questions.  What is the difference between the Adaptor Kit and the Conversion Kit.  (the drawings are a little unclear) Are both needed to change a SP RW DW antenna into a DP RW antenna for use with a PTP820C?

Re: Re-Use Existing Antennas for PTP820

For adaptor, you really don't need to do any change on antenna. You just need add the adaptor, then add the PTP820 radio.

 

When use converter, you basically need remove the old plate and replaced with the new converter. 

 

From performance point of view, there is no real difference.  You only need one of them. Personally i prefer to use converter than adaptor. As converter make the antenna more like the direct mount PTP820 dish. The adaptor is a add up, it add extra weight to the antenna.

Perfect!  Excellent explaination.

 

Thank You,

Re: Re-Use Existing Antennas for PTP820

Do these conversion kits also work with any existing Radomes present on the antennas?

Re: Re-Use Existing Antennas for PTP820

I have several Trango Apex Plus 11 GHz links, one of which has the Trango branded 3 ft dishes which perform well but are big suckers (kind of a deep parabolic design I think).  I desperately need more throughput on this particular link, which is also fairly long, and I was figuring I would have to switch to 6 GHz, take down the Trango monster dishes, and put up new ones.  But in Link Planner, it doesn't look like 6 GHz is light years better than 11 GHz on this link.

 

So does this mean I could use the Remec adapter to reuse the Trango dishes with PTP820S radios?  (Of course I would have to go through PCNs and license modification.)  Has anybody done this, and is the performance as calculated?

 

One more question:  why are there different adapters for single and dual polarization?

Re: Re-Use Existing Antennas for PTP820

"why are there different adapters for single and dual polarization?"

 

Wouldn't customers be a little skeptical if we offered a one-size fits all adapter?

 

:)

 

If the link is single polarization (V or H), it needs a single pol adapter.

 

If the link is dual polarization (Cross-pol or XPIC, ACAP or CCDP), it needs a dual pol adapter.

 

Please let me know if I've misunderstood your question!

 

Thanks for using the forum!

Re: Re-Use Existing Antennas for PTP820

Please check "PTP 820 REMEC Adaptor Installation Guide" under PTP820 support web page.

 

It listed what kind of antenna and configuration can use the REMEC adaptor.
