What are the specifications of the ADS-B antenna?

CXL 1090-1LW

Our brand new ADS-B antenna, we are using for world wide installations.

Description

  • CXL 1090-1LW is a 0 dBd, vertically polarized, omnidirectional base station and marine antenna, which covers the 1090 MHz band.
  • Provided with the sturdy “LW” mast mount – a lightweight, multipurpose, epoxy-coated mounting bracket made of non-corrosive aluminium.
  • Especially designed for ADS-B aerial surveillance.
  • The accompanying U-bolts and fittings are made of stainless steel.
  • To be mounted on vertical or horizontal mast tubes, 16 to 54 mm in outer diameter.
  • The cable can be led either on the outside or along the inside of the mast tube.
  • Large bandwidth with respect to both SWR and gain.
  • The carefully designed, broad-banded antenna element is sealed in a high-quality,conical glass fibre tube with low wind-load, which will ensure performance undisturbed by corrosive environments.
  • To substantially reduce noise caused by atmospherical discharges, all metal parts in the antenna are DC-grounded. Consequently, the antenna shows a DC-short across the coaxial cable.
  • The CXL 1090-1LW is a vibration-proof, lightweight, slim-line, corrosion resistant, modern style base station and marine antenna.

No internet connection?

The ADS-B receiver requires an active cable internet connection, but if that is not possible we are able to provide you with a 4G modem. Just remember that you wont be able to access the ADS-B data yourself if using a 4G modem connection.

Is it possible to place the ADS-B receiver outside?

Yes. It is possible to place the ADS-B receiver out using an Fibox installation, where the ADS-B receiver is placed within the Fibox. On the image underneath here, we have also installed a 4G modem for internet connection.

Is our ADS-B data safe?

The ADS-B network solution utilizes security levels comparable to other industry standard security solutions based on a hardened Linux operating system. Public access to the network is not possible and data is delivered to a secure, redundant AIR SUPPORT A/S server (plug’n’play security). AIR SUPPORT A/S will cooperate with you as an ADS-B network solution partner on any security-related issues.

No signal/connection to GPS antenna?

When installing the small GPS antenna always remember to tighten the GPS connector all the way in. Finish tighten it using a tool. If the GPS antenna is not receiving data from any satellites we will need a GPS extension cable.

The GPS extender cable can be ordered in custom lenght, but the standard cable is 10 meters long. Please contact our ADS-B personal for ordering an extender.
