USA - Professional Wireless Systems (PWS) has added the Tour Series (TS) Helical Antenna to their antenna line. The TS Helical differs from their standard helical versions (available in both the 460-900MHz and 900-1000MHz frequency ranges) because it was designed with a lower profile making it useful for applications that require compact size and easy storage for touring applications.
“The TS Helical was a product that we had kicked around for a while,” explains Jim Van Winkle, general manager for Orlando-headquartered PWS. “Touring professionals and integrators were looking for something that was less obtrusive in size and visibility. All our helical units have circular polarization, created by a rigid helix for consistent performance, but the helix on the TS is significantly shorter -almost 7" - than the traditional version."
The new antenna offers the same coverage pattern as the Domed Helical Antenna. Every PWS Helical antenna offers drop-out free RF performance for IEM, wireless mics, and intercoms along with ‘greater bandwidth, longer range, and rock-solid reliability’. The all-new smoked, transparent materials give the TS a stealth look that will blend in with staging and scenery, says the company.
“Unlike traditional whip or fin antennas - which transmit and receive signals in a single polarization - the circular motion of the RF field emitted by a helical antenna distributes the signal through all possible polarisations,” adds Justin Van Winkle, production manager for PWS. “This is key to reducing the risk of drop-outs. Any movement of a wireless device on a 1/4 wave whip antenna can result in a polarization shift that can easily cause RF dropouts.”
