What is Antenna Interface Standards Group?

The Antenna Interface Standards Group (often referred to as AISG) is a not-for-profit international consortium of communications infrastructure manufacturers and network operators working together to maintain and develop standards for digital remote control and monitoring of antenna line equipment. wireless industry. Founded in November 2001 with five members initially, as of March 2019, there are 45 members worldwide, spread across North America, Asia, Europe and the South Pacific. The consortium has published four versions of its underlying communication standard, AISG v1.0, AISG v1.1, AISG v2.0, and AISG v3.0. The consortium also publishes stand-alone standards detailing details related to its base standards. These standards include standards for connectors used in AISG's RS-485-based bus, standards for marking RF connectors on antenna panels, and standards for distribution software and configuration files in XML packaging.



Many wireless infrastructure sites have installed Remote Electrical Tilt (RET) systems to optimize signal patterns. The RET control cable between the control unit and the antenna is the least appreciated system component unless you can't find it to complete the installation. RF Industries stocks RET control cables in standard lengths from 0.5m to 100m. These cables are factory terminated with male to female connectors to AISG standards and are fully compatible with Andrew, Kathrein, RFS and other RET systems.



Premier Cable customizes RET control cables to your desired specifications. These cables are designed for RF telecommunications infrastructure with RET (Remote Electronic Tilt) component based systems, feeding data and power from the controller to the RET system components. Our cables are fully AISG EIA-485 Tier 1 system compliant. We also sell bulk cable by the foot as well as individual connectors.

The role of DeviceNet terminal resistor

DeviceNet_network is a fieldbus network protocol based on Controller Area Network (CAN). In the DeviceNet network, the terminal resistor plays the role of compensation and protection for signal transmission. The function of the terminal resistor is to eliminate signal reflection and interference and ensure the signal transmission quality.
