Alaris Holdings Purchases UK based Linwave Technology

South African based Alaris Holdings has long been on the lookout for opportunities to widen its already substantial footprint. A specialist in the RF (radio frequency) technology field, the company has grown from a small consulting service into a powerhouse, globally recognised for its extensive expertise and continuous development of intellectual property.

The Alaris Holdings Group currently consists of four entities – Alaris Antennas (based in South Africa), COJOT (based in Finland), and mWAVE Industries and Alaris USA (based in Maine, USA). With the acquisition, the Group increases its global footprint even further, boding well for future growth.

UK based Linwave Technology was founded in 2003 and focuses on the design and manufacture of  RF/microwave components and subsystems. The company supplies its advanced and customised products across multiple markets, from defence, avionics, marine, industrial, satcom and healthcare to space, wireless, transport and security. Their extensive RF/microwave capabilities were a great attraction for the Alaris Group, as was the prospect of widening its scope into other markets from its core in the defence segment.

Alaris Holdings Group CEO, Juergen Dresel, has indicated previously that Alaris set out to complement the Group with strong RF/microwave electronics design and RF assembly capabilities. Linwave Technology fits this strategic requirement like a glove. A share purchase agreement was signed on Friday 26 February, with the same effective date.

“Linwave will contribute greatly to the diversification of various elements in the Group, adding new products, new customers, new territories and new market segments like medical and aviation. There is no doubt that this will lead to some great cross-selling opportunities within the Group,” stated Juergen Dresel.

While Linwave already boasts an expert skillset in the RF/microwave field, Chris Carr, Linwave’s Sales Director, said that they are “excited to become part of an international group of companies, thereby exploiting synergies to create new business opportunities.” He added that “the acquisition will provide an opportunity to integrate our RF/microwave electronics technology with the core antenna business of Alaris, to produce cutting edge and advanced system solutions to our combined customer base.”

The acquisition is a watershed for both the Alaris Holdings Group and Linwave Technology. The Alaris Holdings subsidiaries have developed their product range over the years from a components-based offering to more complete antenna systems solutions. By adding a strong competency in RF/microwave electronics design and manufacture, which complement the product offering, the Group and its subsidiaries will be well-positioned to take a distinctive lead in a niche market. Moreover, it is expected that Alaris’s established global footprint will assist Linwave in its drive to fulfil export potential and support a wider customer base outside the UK.

The companies share very similar value systems – centred around the customer – providing dedicated engineering teams driven by an open, honest interest in supporting their customers’ needs and providing world class RF and microwave technologies for specialised requirements and harsh environments.

Ian Duke, Managing Director of Linwave Technology, noted that “the management team and shareholders of Linwave are excited about the future of the business” and confirmed that “Linwave is proud to be able to add value to the already advanced Alaris products by means of our intellectual property.”

Mr Dresel added that “the plan is that Linwave becomes the ‘go-to place’ for RF/microwave design and developments required within the Group”, concluding that “by Linwave becoming part of the ALH Group of companies, (it) will allow us to become more system orientated. This enables us to strategically move up vertically in the value chain.”

Following its normal approach, Alaris will make no changes to the Linwave management team. Linwave will join its sister companies, COJOT and mWAVE under the Alaris UK Investment holdings entity, and the Linwave board will remain majority manned by UK residents.

P-25A36GN-U when reliability and sustainability are essential

The mWAVE Mark 0.9m / 3-ft parabolic grid is a rugged professional grade antenna that goes beyond anything available in the market, of its size.  This robust antenna design is deployed in critical networks where reliability and sustainability are essential. Unlike other small aperture grids these small aperture reflectors are designed with a Survival Rating of 201 kmh / 125 mph wind and are customizable to withstand other conditions per the customers site specific environmental conditions. All mWAVE Mark parabolic grid antennas meet or exceed Standard ANSI/TIA-222.

 

A true characteristic of mWAVE’s  0.9m / 3-ft Mark parabolic grids is lower wind-loading, typically reduced by 40% or more from a comparable sized solid antenna without ice. Other key features found on this model series are a full range of independent azimuth and elevation adjustments similar to the features found on mWAVE’s larger parabolic grid antennas. The reflector mounts to a  customers provided vertical mast pipe ranging from 2.38 in. – 4 in. OD (60 mm – 102 mm). Custom mounts for specific applications are available on request The reflector is manufactured with high quality aluminum tubes and welded to an aluminum rim and back ring for years of trouble free operation.

 

These small aperture grids can be found in all corners of the communication industry ranging from, wireless broadband service providers, military, research, corporate data-backhaul, broadcast studio to transmitter link (STL), temporary or redundant systems, utility markets, public safety segments and wireless carriers to name a few.

 

The antennas come with mWAVE’s standard 3 year warranty.  To find out more or to request a quote, click here 

Mark Parabolic Grid Antennas are history in the making

Antennas do not age, they evolve as we have seen with our Mark Parabolic Grid antennas.

Thousands of Mark parabolic grids have been produced since the 1960s and have been shipped to customers worldwide.  Starting at 3-ft (0.9m) our antennas go up to 15-ft (4.6m).

A leader in the development of microwave parabolic grid antennas, Mark Antenna has been instrumental in providing rugged light weight antennas to the public safety, utility, carrier and energy markets including both government and military sectors.

We have improved feed enhancements for increased performance and reliability, introduced new training videos for common installation questions and we have an antenna and feed repair service.  We believe strongly in the work that these antennas are subjected to which is why we have a renew to factory spec program.  Our aim is to offer continued support for your parabolic grids no matter when they were installed.

To reduce shipping cost and improve site handling, Mark antennas are available in a 4-piece ComPak grid model line that are available in 4-ft. (1.2m) – 6-ft. (1.8m) and 8-ft. (2.4m) diameters. All Mark grid models can be configured to weather your specific site’s environmental conditions.

mWAVE’s 1.100-1.700 GHz, Dual Circular Prime Focus Feed is an engineered solution to complex problem

mWAVE’s Dual Circular Prime Focus Feed solution model FPP1CD-14-N-C is a custom engineered solution to meet a client’s specific need that did not exist in the marketplace until now. mWAVE’s custom engineering team created this dual circular feed that is designed to operate in the 1.100 – 1.700 GHz band. This design is scalable to accommodate other bands and specification requirements. This design was specifically intended for use in a 3.1-meter reflector with an .375 f/d, and includes a prime radiator and an integrated RF component enclosure with mounting flange. The enclosure contains the band pass filters and low noise amplifiers for each channel in addition to a test inject circuit for monitoring the function of both amplifiers. Other components for this design that were included in the insulated enclosure is a heater fan assembly to maintain temperatures of the feed interior and aperture above freezing temps to guarantee performance down to -40° C/F.

Customizable feed designs, and frequency bands are available with various power handling options and polarizations are available on request.

mWAVE’s custom design team will design and manufacture antennas and feeds to meet your specific requirements. Our engineers have experience from 100 MHz to over 110 GHz, and with apertures ranging in size from a single patch to over 100 feet. Let us partner with you to develop a set of specifications that meet your system requirements.
