When choosing a material for each product, SWR looks at the relevant properties of available choices and selects the best practical material for the intended use. High purity heavy wall copper is selected for the transmission line inner connectors because of its excellent conductivity characteristics. By selecting this material, we can provide a better product that features low loss and high thermal conductivity for greater heat dissipation. An important factor when the objective is to get the highest quality signal to the antenna.
SWR antennas will stand up to the harshest weather Mother Nature can provide. Quality control does not end once material is selected. While we spend a lot of time checking to make sure the product is made just right, we also use modern equipment like an automated flame cutting torch bed and custom seam welder to make sure the product is made efficiently to keep costs low.
To provide a reliable system, Engineering standards and tests are a primary concern. SWR designs optimum performance, stability and reliability in each and every thing we make.
All new and custom products undergo rigid performance tests to meet standards that are often more rigorous than required. Tests are conducted on the most advanced equipment available today.
Before a new product is constructed, SWR utilizes state-of-the-art computer modeling to test the performance of an antenna design. During this design phase, the computer determines coverage predictions based on the FCC 50/50 curves for optimum performance.
A proprietary CAD system assures that the new or customized product is manufactured as accurately and efficiently as possible. Our design stage not only tests to make sure an SWR product will provide the best performance possible, we also test to make sure our products meet your individual requirements. Just let us know your specific requirements: desired coverage, terrain conditions and mechanical limitations-- and we'll provide a product designed to meet your exacting specifications.
