Rain Fade is a serious challenge with the new Ka-Band systems. High Throughput Satellites (HTS) employing Ka-Band and Ku-Band services are demanding higher availability than ever before.
Signal attenuation at Ka-Band during heavy rainfall can be up to four or five times that of C/Ku-Band. Antenna wetting alone can add 2.7 to 3.9 dB of link losses at Ka-Band.
Walton Rain Quake systems reduce rain fade on your Ka-Band antennas, and protect your antenna G/T performance. During heavy rain conditions, Walton Rain Quake systems can reduce data loss — by over 20X compared to Ka-Band antennas without protection.
• Prevents water from sheeting on your antenna surface - and causing Ka or Ku-band rain fade — from VSATs to large antennas.
• Covers your antenna — keeping rain off with PTFE material that’s virtually invisible to RF.
• Rain Quake is also the Ice Quake De-Icing System for year-round protection in areas with snow and ice.
