Command & control

Command & control

Command and control centers are typically located within mobile shelters or bunker infrastructures and must comply with MIL-STD-188 (or equivalent) shielding specifications. Every point of entry into this type of Faraday cage has a negative impact on the screening effectiveness of the complete system.

HUBER+SUHNER EMP protector designs (coaxial and data line) offer bulkhead feedthrough solutions that guarantee high, long-term screening effectiveness and provide the lowest transfer impedance to protect any sensitive equipment. By using fiber optic cables within a traditional RF or datalink (Ethernet) system, it is possible to position the shelters further from the antennas without sacrificing loss or signal data integrity. Our RF-over-fiber system provides a significant advantage in terms of safety, overall screening effectiveness, and ease of installation.

In addition to the RF-over-fiber solution, HUBER+SUHNER can provide all additional connectivity solutions.

Requirements

  • High, longterm screening effectiveness
  • Immunity against EMI, EMP

Eacon - field terminated microwave assembly

Some applications require on site flexibility because undefined conditions in the field ask for cable length and connector configuration right on the spot, while other scenarios ask for assembly termination after the cable installation (for example, if the cable feedthrough is smaller than the connector dimension). 

Therefore, HUBER+SUHNER offers solutions to terminate microwave assemblies in the field with a tool box that allows easy, quick and solderless cable assembling, without affecting our high product standards.

The Enviroflex cable family enables users to quickly switch from fluorine-containing cables to halogen-free alternatives. The materials used in the cable design – both for the dielectric and for the jacket – do not include any fluorine-consisting plastics. The dimensions of the individual cable types are entirely compatible with the international RG standards. Standard connectors can be used without any restrictions with the Enviroflex cable family. HUBER+SUHNER´s control of various key technologies has proven to be an invaluable advantage.

Antennas

GPS antennas / distribution

GPS antennas / distribution

The GPS L1 / L2 antennas are ideally suited for exterior installations on roofs. These HUBER+SUHNER antennas contain large selective patch antennas and an RF band pass filter that attenuates cellular and radar frequency ranges in order to minimise interferences and blocking effects.

UHF/VHF antennas

UHF/VHF antennas

HUBER+SUHNER offers a broad range of ultra high frequency (UHF) / very high frequency (VHF) antennas suited for communication and ECM applications. This complementary range of antennas is designed for the bandwidth, power, and interoperability demands of contemporary applications.

QMA/QN

HUBER+SUHNER QMA and QN connectors have a quick-lock coupling mechanism. QMA and QN are easy to mate and allow a high packaging density because no tools are needed.

QMA

QMA

HUBER+SUHNER QMA coaxial connectors are in accordance with QLF standard and available with 50 ohm impedance. The frequency range extends to 18 GHz, depending on the connector and cable type. However most of the QMA connectors are return loss optimised for frequencies up to 6 GHz. The interface is based on the SMA dimension but instead of a threaded coupling mechanism a new snap-lock mechanism is used. The QMA interface has a very similar performance to the SMA, but in addition it offers an easier, faster and safer coupling operation, helping customers to save significantly time during production. The packaging density of QMA is increased compared to SMA connectors thanks to the fact that no torque spanner is required to fasten the coupling nut. QMA is not intermateable with SMA. QMA connectors are also available as waterproof version (IP68) and are compatible with QLF standard.

QN

QN

HUBER+SUHNER QN coaxial connectors are available with 50 ohm impedance. The frequency range extends to 11 GHz, depending on the connector and cable type, however most of the QN connectors are return loss optimised for frequencies up to 6 GHz. The interface is based on the inner dimensions of the N connector, but, instead of a threaded coupling mechanism, a snap-lock mechanism is used. The QN interface has a very similar performance to N, but in addition it offers an easier, faster and safe coupling operation, helping the customers to save significantly on time during production of their systems. The packaging density of QN increased compared to N thanks to the fact that no torque spanner is required to fasten the coupling nut. Additionally the outer dimensions of QN are smaller than N, leading to the advantage that even TNC-size flanges can be used at QN connectors.

XQMA

XQMA

QMA eXtreme is the advanced version of the waterproof QMA, combining the quick-lock mechanism and waterproof properties also in rough environmental conditions. The coupling mechanism is completely waterproof and not only the RF signal path, thus protecting the connector from corrosion in a salty atmosphere and from freezing in case of high humidity and low temperature.

XQN

XQN

Besides the outstanding characteristics of the quick-lock connector QN, this advanced version has some extra features. The coupling mechanism is completely waterproof and not only the RF signal path, thus protecting the complete connector from corrosion in a salty atmosphere and from freezing in case of high humidity and low temperatures. This extra features besides the excellent PIM performance (typical -162 dBc) and the optimum power performance (≈350 W by 2 GHz) makes this connector the ideal solution for antenna connections.

All-optical switches

Polatis' highly reliable piezoelectric Directlight® beam-steering technology sets the industry standard for lowest optical loss and highest performance. With more than a billion port-hours accumulated on deployed units, the Polatis technology platform delivers a broad range of class-leading all-optical matrix switch products into demanding applications. At the core of Polatis optical switches is our patented DirectLight beam-steering technology that makes connections using compact piezoelectric actuators to align collimated beams of light from opposing arrays of input and output fibers with minimal loss, distortion or interference between paths. Alignment is maintained using feedback from integrated position sensors to ensure connection stability over time, temperature and external disturbances. Switching occurs completely independently of the power level, colour or direction of light on the path, enabling pre-provisioning of dark fiber and avoiding concatenation of switching delays across mesh or multi-stage switched optical networks. Polatis optical switches are fully non-blocking and available in sizes from 4x4 to 384x384.
