  • AD511 Mark II Active Iridium Antenna


AD-511 Iridium Active Antenna is designed to allow Iridium installations with up to 160 meters of coaxial RF cable, without any degradation of performance, compared to only 30 meters maximum for a standard passive antenna device. 

These extended cable lengths offer the ability to provide Iridium installations on ships and land where previously an Iridium solution could not operate.  

AD-511 is supplied without coaxial cable as standard, but allows pre-set lengths between 27 and 160 meters subject to use of the correct, AST identified coaxial cable.

Package consists of Active Antenna head with heavy duty alloy mounting bracket and Power Break-In Box.  This is designed to sit close to the Iridium phone device and requires a DC power input between 18 and 36vdc (Power supply not included). A 1meter coaxial lead is supplied to connect the Iridium phone device to the Power Break-In Box.  

The AD511 replaces the AD510-10
