Antenna Monitoring System - AMS

All over the world radio and television broadcasters rely on their transmission systems operating unfailing around the clock, including patch panels, feeder cables and dipoles. The infrastructure itself is generally robust, but in the long run can be damaged and disturbed sustainable through RF overloads, incorrect installation or environmental influences (e.g.: UV radiation, ice, strong wind).

SPINNERs Antenna Monitoring System (AMS) was developed to detect and pinpoint potential malfunction sources, like minimal arcing, compromised insulation or water ingress as early as possible. Thus, the whole broadcast transmission system can be prevented from greater damages, for example degraded RF-components, fire or even a complete off-air situation. All conspicuous events are continuously and reliable recorded in the AMS control unit and can be checked from anywhere via a user-friendly web interface, which also can be used to easily configurate the AMS system setup. A detected failure triggers an alarm both locally on warning LEDs and remotely via a SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) interface.

All AMS system components are engineered for indoor installation and can be integrated simple and fast, even in already existing broadcast sites. SPINNER offers two different mounting forms for the frequency bands FM (Band 2), VHF (Band 3) and UHF (Band 4 & 5):

  • AMS detector in U-links: fast & easy mounting on any SPINNER patch panel
  • AMS Rigid Line Sections: insertion anywhere in any rigid line system for greatest flexibility

SPINNERs Antenna Monitoring System helps prevent damage, reduce maintenance costs and safeguard your investment.
