Dioon offers an extensive range of Horn antennas. Dioon Horn antennas are available either with Waveguide or Coaxial inputs. All of our Horn antennas are designed for harsh environmental conditions and can be configured according to customer demands. The horn antennas could be radomized if needed.
A horn antenna is an antenna consisting of a flaring metal waveguide shaped like a horn to direct radio waves through a beam. Horns are commonly used as antennas at UHF and microwave frequencies, above 300 MHz. They are used as feeders for larger antenna structures such as parabolic antennas, as standard calibration antennas to measure the gain of other antennas, and as directive antennas for such devices as radar guns, automatic door openers, and microwave radiometers.
A horn antenna is a type of directional antenna that uses a flared metal waveguide to focus and direct radio waves. The antenna consists of a metal horn-shaped structure, a feed antenna located at the narrow end of the horn, and a supporting structure to hold the horn and feed in place.
Horn antennas are commonly used in applications where high gain and directional performance are required, such as in satellite communication, radar systems, and wireless communication. The antenna's design allows it to produce a narrow beam of radiation in a specific direction, which makes it suitable for long-range communication and detection.
The feed antenna is typically a dipole or a waveguide antenna and is located at the narrow end of the horn. When the feed antenna emits radio waves, the waves are guided through the horn and focused into a narrow beam. The size of the horn determines the antenna's gain and beamwidth, with larger horns producing higher gain and narrower beamwidth.
One of the main advantages of horn antennas is their high gain, which allows them to transmit and receive signals over long distances. They also have a narrow beamwidth, which makes them suitable for use in applications that require a highly directional antenna. Additionally, they have a relatively simple design, which makes them easy to manufacture and assemble. However, their main disadvantage is their relatively narrow bandwidth, which limits their use to specific frequency ranges.
