FAU200 Antenna Wind Loading

leave a comment »

The FAU200 has two possible configurations, the integrated factory-delivered configuration with two antennas mounted on the unit itself, and a remoted antenna configuration.

The antennas used on the unmodified factory configuration will tolerate winds up to 50 m/s (112 mph).  The unit has been tested with winds 50m/s (-+ 2m/s) for 15 minutes in each of 8 directions, separated by 45 degrees, for a total of 2 hours.

The remoted antenna configuration will tolerate 89 m/s (200mph) winds.
