New SUPERPANEL™ Broadband UHF TV Antenna

Chandler, Indiana USA – April 3, 2018 – ERI and iTECH are introducing their new SUPERPANEL broadband UHF panel antenna at the upcoming NABSHOW in Las Vegas. The i230ECx is a compact broadband side mounted UHF television antenna suitable for main and auxiliary applications. The antenna is configured in a cylindrical radome, that is very lightweight and low wind load. The base configuration is an 8-bay module that includes two inputs. The antenna can be supplied with an integrated hybrid power divider and phasing loop for fixed horizontal, elliptical or circular polarization or the system can be configured with a dual feed system that will allow for variable polarization ratios, that can be set for the entire array or for each individual channel feeding the system. This broadband antenna is suitable for single channel systems or for the combined operation of more than one television station in a single antenna. The 8-bay module is rated for 20 kW average power, 10 kW per input. There are standard system configurations for 8, 16 and 24 bays with array power handling capability up to 60 kW average power. The 16 and 24 bay configurations include the required power divider and feed harness.

The antenna is available with a wide cardioid azimuth pattern, Model i230ECW, or a narrow cardioid azimuth pattern, Model i230ECN. Both models are housed in a compact 22-inch (550 mm) cylindrical unpressurized fiberglass radome.

Standard antenna systems include 15-inch (381 mm) standoff brackets for mounting on poles or tower legs from 1.5-inches (35 mm) to 7.5-inches (191 mm) OD.  Standoff support pipes, face mount brackets, and mounts for larger diameter poles are available from ERI as optional items.
