sectorInvertedAmos

Create inverted Amos sector antenna

Description

Use the sectorInvertedAmos object to create an inverted Amos sector antenna consisting of four dipole-like arms. The antenna is fed at the origin of the dipole. The dipole arms are symmetric about the origin. The operating frequency of the antenna is at 2.45 GHz wireless.

Creation

Syntax

amossector = sectorInvertedAmos
amossector = sectorInvertedAmos(Name,Value)

Description

example

amossector = sectorInvertedAmos creates an inverted Amos sector antenna with four dipole-like arms.

amossector = sectorInvertedAmos(Name,Value) sets properties using one or more name-value pair. For example, amossector = sectorInvertedAmos('ArmWidth',0.2) creates an inverted Amos sector with a dipole width of 0.2 m. Enclose each property name in quotes.

Properties

Length of individual dipole arms, specified as a vector with each element unit in meters.

Example: 'ArmLength',[0.0980 0.0810 0.0830 0.0750]

Example: amossector.ArmLength = [0.0980 0.0810 0.0830 0.0750]

Data Types: double

Width of dipole arms, specified as a scalar in meters.

Example: 'ArmWidth',0.0025

Example: amossector.ArmWidth = 0.0025

Data Types: double

Notch length, specified as a scalar in meters. For an inverted Amos sector antenna with seven stacked arms, six notches are generated. Notch length is measured along the length of the antennas.

Example: 'NotchLength',0.001

Example: amossector.NotchLength = 0.001

Data Types: double

Notch width, specified as a scalar in meters. For an inverted Amos sector antenna with seven stacked arms, six notches are generated. Notch width is measured perpendicular to the length of the antenna.

Example: 'NotchWidth',0.00190

Example: amossector.NotchWidth = 0.00190

Data Types: double

Ground plane length, specified as a scalar in meters. By default, ground plane length is measured along x-axis.

Example: 'GroundPlaneLength',0.7500

Example: amossector.GroundPlaneLength = 0.7500

Data Types: double

Ground plane width, specified as a scalar in meters. By default, ground plane width is measured along y-axis.

Example: 'GroundPlaneWidth',0.0500

Example: amossector.GroundPlaneWidth = 0.0500

Data Types: double

Distance between ground plane and antenna element, specified as a scalar in meters.

Example: 'Spacing',0.0355

Example: amossector.Spacing = 0.0355

Data Types: double

Lumped elements added to the antenna feed, specified as a lumped element object handle. You can add a load anywhere on the surface of the antenna. By default, it is at the origin. For more information, see lumpedElement.

Example: 'Load',lumpedelement. lumpedelement is the object handle for the load created using lumpedElement.

Example: amossector.Load = lumpedElement('Impedance',75)

Tilt angle of antenna, specified as a scalar or vector in degrees.

Example: 'Tilt',90

Example: amossector.Tilt= [90 90 0]

Data Types: double

Tilt axis of the antenna, specified as:

  • A three-element vector of Cartesian coordinates in meters. In this case, each vector starts at the origin and lies along the specified points on the X, Y, and Z axis.

  • Two points in space as three-element vectors of Cartesian coordinates. In this case, the antenna rotates along the line joining the two points.

  • A string input for simple rotations around the principal planes, X, Y, or Z.

For more information see, Rotate Antenna and Arrays

Example: 'TiltAxis',[0 1 0]

Example: 'TiltAxis',[0 0 0;0 1 0]

Example: amossector.TiltAxis = Z

Data Types: double
