Sinclair Launches Their NexGen Aurora SC Series Collinear Antennas

Sinclair Technologies ("Sinclair"), a Division of Norsat International Inc., has launched their next-generation public safety collinear antennas, the Aurora™ SC series, at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) in Orlando, Florida.

Using cutting-edge, field-proven PCB technology, the patent-pending Aurora design achieves an unparalleled combination of higher gain, wider bandwidth, highly consistent RF pattern, higher wind rating, and lighter weight, all in the smallest form factor. Designed to international standards (IEC62305 Part 1-4 and VDE 0855-300) and fulfilling the requirements of lightning protection class II, the Aurora SC series is fully DC-grounded and protected with a lightning spike through the top of the radome. Unbeatable, heavy-duty construction along with the enhanced wind rating, means these antennas can last for many years in the most challenging environments. The new Aurora SC series is ideal for public safety applications as it offers reliability, durability, and easy installation in a light weight and compact package.

The Aurora SC Series features:

  • Ultra-Wide Bandwidth: Patent-pending PCB design covers wider frequency ranges and higher gains creating more efficient and effective communication systems.
  • Low Noise Characteristics: Industry-leading -150 dBc PIM rating. The Aurora SC series is ideal for public safety applications and trunking systems.
  • Rugged Construction: UV-protected radome and heavy-duty materials allow for long life span in harsh environments.
  • Easy-to-Install: Lighter weight and small wind-loading profile allows for easy installation.
  • Multiple Options: Electrical downtilt, null fill, PIP-rated, and inverted versions available.


Ken Broom, General Manager of Sinclair, stated that the Aurora SC series is a best-in-class collinear antenna designed for the public safety sector. Sinclair has been perfecting this design for some time and we are very excited to introduce this high-performance antenna series to our wide and diverse product line. Sinclair has always been committed to R&D and today, we are seeing the results of that commitment with the new Aurora SC series.

The new Aurora SC series antennas will be on display at Sinclair's booth #1935 at IWCE on March 7-8 in Orlando, Florida.
