MW Microwave Alignment Systems – When Accuracy Matters

When accuracy matters (and it always does), use Sunsight.  There is no alternative.

Sunsight has the only automatic end-to-end  real-time alignment system

Size matters – smaller alignment products cannot provide the required accuracy for microwave alignments, period.  It’s just physics and physics  always wins!

The only tool that does it all – patented end-to-end link alignment and RF Panel Antenna Alignment in one system.

Sunsight’s Microwave Path Alignment Kits have revolutionized how Microwave Antenna links are aligned. The Microwave Path Alignment Kits are self-contained alignment systems for aligning microwave links at any line-of-sight distance. These patented (US 9,781,233) systems calculate the required alignment, including both azimuth and elevation automatically and in real-time using the exact GPS location of both ends of the microwave link.

There are two types of MW kits – the standard MW kit and the MW Max kit.  Both are highly capable solutions.  The MW kit can be used for all standard microwave alignments for high frequency and long links.  In addition to microwave alignment, the MW kit is also two  independent RF Panel Alignment systems as well.  Truly an all in one alignment solution.  The MW Max kit is an extremely accurate alignment kit that typically is used for research, defense or special situations where azimuth accuracy is absolutely paramount.

Some of the advantages of the microwave path alignment kits produced by Sunsight are that no active radio transmission is needed on the path being aligned, so removal of the radio or coax is not required. The kits are also completely frequency independent. The kits are an overlay solution working from the exact GPS locations of the antennas; each of the MW units automatically calculates the required azimuth and elevation. The two units included in the kit work in paired mode (or independently, if required) to determine the required path parameters. You will no longer have to wait to find the RF signal from the other side, saving time, frustration, and resources. This state of the art Microwave Path Alignment Kit will take on your toughest path alignment jobs.

Key Features of the Microwave Path Alignment Kit include:

The only alignment tool accurate enough to correctly align microwave links. Smaller alignment products cannot provide the required accuracy for microwave alignments.

Sunsight has the only automatic end-to-end automatic real-time alignment system.

The All-inclusive MW Kit includes two alignment units to simultaneously align both sides of the link in minutes.

MW Kit units can also be used as two complete directional alignment tools. All required accessories for panel antenna alignment are included as standard in the MW Kit.

The MW units can be used independently to align one end of the link at a time, which creates flexible installation schedules for users.

MW Kit software automatically calculates the required path alignment (target azimuth and elevation), eliminating data entry problems, incorrect path data sheets, or changing antenna locations.

The solution is frequency and distance-independent

Azimuth, elevation, height, and location (Lat/Long) are captured along with photos into reports for customer and government communication agency records.

Reduces climber fatigue and time on the tower. Faster and safer.

Intuitive use of the kit. Both climbers are presented with target and actual alignment values and can also view the remote end’s alignment progress.

Google Earth reports are created and can be used to identify possible physical interference with link signals.

Google Earth’s history feature allows users to look at potential physical link interference over time. Every time Google Earth is updated, the same Google Earth file can be used to identify possible new issues.

Field Proven Toughness: solid powder-coated aluminum housing, weather resistant (IP65)

Measures AGL height if required (with laser rangefinder option)

MW unit calibration can be done in the field by the user in less than 2 minutes. No need to return to the factory.

Both the MW and MW Max are also available for purchase as single units, which include all the features of the full MW and MW Max Kits and can be used in patented end-to-end mode when paired with a second MW unit.
