Due to the design of various types of antennas, we can distinguish between two main groups. The first is antennas, in which the materials used in their construction, react to changes in temperature in a manner that does not noticeable violate the integrity of the whole structure. This is the case of joints through mechanical adhesion of materials having different coefficients of thermal expansion, such as plastics with metals. Examples of such are PANEL and SECTOR antennas. The second group consists of antennas, in which the individual components are small in size, or a combination of materials and antenna design takes into account temperature expansion coefficients and is performed by means of bolts or rivets and thus, the parameters of the structural integrity outweigh the parameters of thermal expansion of individual elements. An example of such antennas are omnidirectional HORIZON series antennas and SECTOR V90 and V120 antennas. In summary, for each group operating temperature range is as follows: For a series of antennas HORIZON, SECTOR V120 and V90 assume values in the range from -60° to 90°. However, a series of antennas SECTOR and PANEL have diverse structure so their parameters are not presented here but the are (or will soon be) available on the product pages.
