This section displays antenna types recorded in our database. While we aim to provide a comprehensive overview of the most common design types, the list is not intended to be exhaustive.
To explore antenna models available for purchase, please visit our Antenna Catalogue.
|Panel / Sector||Antenna system with a directive radiation in both azimuthal and vertical planes, typically utilised to cover a number of receivers in a geographic area.|
|Yagi||A linear end-fire array consisting of a driven element, a reflector element, and one or more director elements.|
|Log Periodic Dipole Array||Any one of a class of antennas having a structural geometry such that its impedance and radiation characteristics repeat periodically as the logarithm of frequency.|
|Grid Reflector||Subtype of parabolic antenna using a wire grid as the reflecting surface. Can be single or dual-polarised.|
|Parabolic Reflector||An antenna whose configuration contains an axially symmetric reflector which is a portion of a paraboloid, and a radiating [receiving] feed system typically positioned at the focal point of the reflector.|
|Dipole||Any one of a class of antennas producing a radiation pattern approximating that of an elementary electric dipole. Common usage considers the dipole antenna to be a metal radiating structure which supports a line current distribution similar to that of a thin straight wire so energised that the current has a node only at each end.|
|Monopole||An antenna, constructed above an imaging plane, that produces a radiation pattern approximating that of an electric dipole in the half-space above the imaging plane.|
|Collinear||A linear array of radiating elements, usually dipoles, with their axes lying in a straight line.|
|Discone||A biconical antenna with one cone having a vertex angle of 180°.|
|Backfire||An antenna consisting of a radiating feed, a reflector element, and a reflecting surface such that the antenna functions as an open resonator, with radiation from the open end of the resonator.|
|Horn||An antenna consisting of a waveguide section in which the cross-sectional area increases towards an open end which is the aperture.|
|Corner Reflector||An antenna consisting of a feed and a reflecting object consisting of two or three mutually intersecting conducting flat surfaces.|
