Sunsight Instruments AAT-30 Antenna Alignment Tool
The AAT-30 integrates dual accelerometers (they are digital inclinometer, global positioning satellites (GPS and GLONASS), and laser range finding to take precise antenna alignment measurements. The AAT employs a dual approach using both GPS and GLONASS constellations for faster azimuth determination, even in environments where the sky is partially obscured. The AAT-30 allows for realtime accurate azimuth measurements up to ±0.3° RMS and ±0.75° R99, and downtilt and roll captures to an accuracy of ±0.1°. This allows for correctly installing antennas the first time, eliminating site re-climbs and re-visits. Additionally, network performance issues due to antenna misalignment are reduced.
The AAT-30 ensures designed coverage and improved carrier to interference-plus-noise ratios (CINR) for faster 4G LTE data throughput and better coverage for all networks, including 2G/3G. The AAT also captures extremely accurate positioning data (Lat/Long to ±30cm) This horizontal accuracy is a critical component for meeting the E911 Phase 2 location requirements.
Simple to operate, the AAT-30 can be mounted to the top, side, and front or back of antennas, all depending on the user's needs. Antenna alignment profiles and reports can quickly and easily be generated via a web-based software GUI accessed through WiFi using any standard PC or mobile device. No proprietary software is required.
