The dBs 510A-L is an 8 element, high performance, full service, all band, omni-directional, Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) antenna. It is a lightweight version of the FAA certified dBs 510A.
This omni-directional antenna has 8 active elements and other components, which produce high main lobe and horizon gain with wide beam width.
This antenna provides vertically polarized, omni-directional coverage with the main beam of radiation tilted upward to minimize the effects of ground reflections. The array has two integral monitor probes which constantly sample the RF signal delivered to the antenna.
The antenna is very lightweight (10.2 lbs.), small, and 100% metal tubular construction, making it extremely rugged. The integral pipe adapter permits direct attachment of the antenna to a 2 7/8″ O.D. pipe.
Monitor probes are not provided.
The main RF input connector uses a Type N jack.
The Model dBs 510A-L antenna has been designed for ruggedness, lightweight, minimum size, long life, and in accordance with FAA-E-2754 and FAA-G-2100.
