RF-382A Series couplers operate with ALE communications systems that require very fast frequency change. Rugged and reliable, they operate under the most severe environmental conditions in vehicular, transportable, shipboard, and fixed- station applications. The RF-382A Antenna Coupler is designed for direct interface withFALCON® IIHFsystemsandisfullycompatiblewiththe built-in MIL-STD-188-141B and STANAG-4538 Automatic Link Establishment (ALE) protocols. The coupler requires a control cable and RF coax interface to connect to the associated transceiver.
Separation can be up to 250 feet (76 m). A high voltage ceramic insulator provides the connection to the antenna. It is also equipped with a 50-ohm N- connector antenna port for coaxial connection to a fixed site broadband or resonant antenna. Internal built-in test to the module level provides rapid diagnostic troubleshooting and repair. In addition, all key operating parameters are continually monitored during operation.
