MA 160-Ex

ATEX certified, End-fed ½ λ dipole marine and base station antenna for the International Maritime VHF band in Hazardous areas

  • MA 160-Ex/... is a 0 dBd, vertically polarized, omnidirectional marine and base station antenna.
    Models within 154 - 162.025 MHz.
  • Full-size, end-fed ½ λ, black-chromed stainless steel whip.

DESCRIPTION

  • Before installing the antenna, read the ATEX Product Manual carefully.
  • The antenna is suitable for use in gas groups IIA, IIB and IIC in zone 2.
  • The antenna can be mounted on threaded 1" water pipe using the supplied 1" revolving nut. In this way, a nice, slim installation is obtained.
  • A wide variety of accessory mounting hardware (see below) gives ample choice regarding alternative ways of installation.
  • All metal parts in the antenna are DC-grounded. Consequently, the antenna shows a DC-short across the coaxial cable.
  • The antenna is a ½ λ design and this means that it needs neither loading coils, ground-plane, radials nor other auxiliary arrangements.
