Antenna permits site validation above 1 GHz

-November 19, 2012

The ABM-6000 biconical antenna from Com-Power provides a dipole-like radiation pattern compliant with CISPR 16-1-4 requirements for site validation at frequencies from 1 GHz to 6 GHz. It is intended for use as the transmit source antenna for radiated emissions measurements of OATS (open area test sites), as well as anechoic and semi-anechoic chambers.

Lightweight and compact, the ABM-6000 is easily transported, while its stainless-steel housing and brass elements provide durability in almost any environment. The linearly polarized antenna offers both transmit and receive capabilities. Each antenna is individually calibrated in accordance with ANSI C63.5:2006 at a distance of 3 meters. In addition to test-site validation, the ABM-6000 can be used in a variety of applications, including amplifier harmonic measurements per IEC 61000-4-3 and field surveys.

The ABM-6000 comes with a protective carrying case, mounting clamp, user’s manual, calibration data, and certificate. Com-Power also offers several nonconductive tripods.
