ETS-Lindgren has announced a significant improvement in antenna measurement integrity when using the company’s popular EMC antennas. Combined EMC Antenna and matched Pre-Amplifier pairs are now available with Antenna Factors which take account of the characteristics of both antenna and amplifier. System Calibration is now provided with each shipment.
ETS-Lindgren announced that its popular Double-Ridged Waveguide Horn and BiConiLog™ antennas are now available together with matched pre-amplifiers. Known as Models 3116C-PA and 3117-PA, the antenna and pre-amplifier combination are calibrated as a single unit. This allows for mismatches between the antenna and the pre-amplifier to be taken into account in the antenna factor (AF) which is provided with each unit. Dr. Vince Rodriguez, Antenna Product Manager for ETS-Lindgren, commented, “Measuring the antenna and the pre-amplifier together as a single unit or system is significant. This provides an antenna factor (AF) that includes all the mismatch losses between the antenna and amp.” Key characteristics of each antenna include single lobe radiation, extremely low AF, and flexible mounting. Model 3116C-PA is ideal as a receive antenna for emissions testing from 18 GHz to 40 GHz. Model 3117-PA is used as a receive antenna for emissions testing from 1 GHz to 18 GHz. The hybrid BiConiLog antenna, Model 3142E-PA, combines innovative design, compact size, and excellent performance with a pre-amplifier module. Designed for emissions testing, the 3142E-PA enables users to measure a frequency range of 30 MHz to 6 GHz in one sweep, eliminating the need for multiple antennas and time-consuming equipment set up. The antenna and pre-amplifier module are calibrated together, including the cable section that connects the module to the antenna port. Flexible mounting is also offered with this antenna as with all the horn antennas noted above, the mounting bracket accepts popular mounting arrangements.
