RF Engineers

The 3Z RF Aligner was designed for RF Engineers as well. During site inspections, site troubleshooting, and new site design most RF Engineers carry a compass, GPS, and a range finder. The 3Z RF Aligner replaces all these devices, making field visits a breeze.

Tower Crew

Designed with the tower technician in mind, the 3Z RF Aligner easily attaches to virtually any directional antenna and comes with an easy to read 4.3″ built-in color LCD display. Screenshots save measurements in seconds.

Microwave Antenna Alignment Tool

The 3Z RF Aligner is used to calculate microwave path target data and also align the microwave path. The 3Z RF Aligner has a microwave antenna alignment mode designed to align microwave antennas regardless of the frequency band.

Wherever microwave links exist, the path between antennas has always required accurate antenna alignment. This process requires highly trained tower crews to physically align the antennas as well as ground technicians and sophisticated, expensive, and complex test equipment to monitor the results. The process is now optimized and can now be accomplished with the 3Z RF Aligner by the tower crew without the need of additional ground technicians or additional equipment, or indeed, even the wave guides or radios installed.

Using GPS Technology the 3Z RF Aligner is a complete test solution designed to quickly and accurately optimize the transmission path between two microwave antennas. Completely outfitted with everything needed to align a microwave link, the link alignment process is completed without the need of radios, multiple test sets, ground technicians, on site AC power, cell phones, or additional two-way radios. Save all your microwave antenna alignment measurements for recordkeeping, easily accessible over USB.

Ensure Proper 4G Antenna Integration and Performance

When 4G antennas are installed, the 3Z RF Aligner helps the RF engineers ensure Antenna azimuth is within target specifications.
Note: A magnetic compass cannot be used on most rooftops. The 3Z RF Aligner can be used anywhere a GPS signal is available.
