2. Accessories

RACOM offers a complete set of accessories to operate RAy microwave units in all relevant use-cases and environments. All accessories are selected and thoroughly tested by RACOM for compatibility and are guaranteed to function with RAy units. It is possible to use other components with same or similar functionality and temperature range, but RACOM cannot guarantee they will be completely compatible with RAy units.

[Important]Important

It is strongly recommended to double-check the mains voltage and local installation standards before purchasing accessories to ensure they comply with the accessory specifications and that all safety regulations are complied with.

In particular, we recommend that you consult your local specialists for grounding, voltage spikes, overvoltage protection and other equipment, ensuring a proper installation. For more information see Section 4.5, “Grounding and overvoltage protection”.

Units and accessories should be installed by trained professionals (see Section 10.4, “Professional installation”).

The warranty does not apply to units damaged by voltage spikes or surges (see Section 10.6, “Liability for Defects and Safety Instructions”).

2.2. Details

Antennas for direct mounting of RAy unit (LEAX-RAy + Jirous)
 

All models of LEAX-RAy and Jirous antennas allow direct mounting of RAy unit.

A radio link calculation should be performed to determine appropriate antenna size (use our on-line calculator or RAy-Tools application for smartphones).

Antenna struts (LEAX-RAy + Jirous)  
 

Bigger antennas (0.9 + 1.2 m) installed at windy sites (wind speed above 50 m/s) require installation of additional struts both for LEAX-RAy and Jirous – see Section 2.1, “Overview for items to quote and Section 4.2.1, “LEAX-RAy antenna mounting” or Section 4.2.2, “Jirous antennas mounting” for installation details.

 
Antenna mounting kit (for Andrew, Arkivator, Alcoma and others)
 

Adapters for direct mounting to different antennas. Types for different frequency bands (10/11, 17/18, 24 GHz), different antenna sizes and different manufacturers. Contact us for available types and details.

Flexible waveguide mounting kit (for other antennas)

 

RAy units can be attached to any antenna using flexible waveguide. Mounting kits to mount RAy unit to the mast and attach flexible waveguide are provided by RACOM. Two types of flexible waveguide flanges are supported: R100 and R120.
