Antennas 6.2.10

8.1.1. Pyramidal Horn

This section explains how to create a pyramidal horn.

When the option is selected, the next panel and a previsualization of the antenna with the parameters on the panel are displayed.

Pyramidal Horn panel

  • Position: set the cartesian coordinates for the position of the antenna. For the antenna, the user can select the position with the mouse, selecting the 'Pick' checkbox and clicking on a point in the geometry panel.
  • Waveguide Aperture Dimensions: set the values for the pyramidal geometry on the top of the antenna. 'Width' and 'Depth' values are only for the top sides of the antenna. The bottom sides of the pyramidal geometry will be added from the 'rectangular waveguide dimensions' parameters.
  • Rectangular Waveguide Dimensions: set the values for the rectangular geometry on the bottom of the antenna. 'Width' and 'Depth' values will be added to the bottom sides of the pyramidal geometry on the top of the geometry.

For each modification on parameters panel, this previsualization will be updated for the new parameters.

8.1.2. Conical Horn

This section explains how to create a conical horn.

When the option is selected, the next panel and a previsualization of the antenna with the parameters on the panel are displayed.

Conical Horn panel

  • Position: set the cartesian coordinates for the position of the antenna. For the antenna, the user can select the position with the mouse, selecting the 'Pick' checkbox and clicking any point in the geometry panel.
  • Waveguide Aperture Dimensions: defines the parameters for the conical geometry on the top of the antenna. The height defines the length of the aperture section, while the radius defines the radius of the circular hole at the end of the aperture section.
  • Circular Waveguide Dimensions: sets the values for the cylindrical geometry on the bottom of the antenna. The height defines the length of the cylindrical section, while the radius defines the radius of this cylindrical section.

For each modification on parameters panel, this previsualization will be updated for the new parameters.
