Reliant EMC

Radiated BroadBand Antenna

High performance EMC antennas to cover the range 30MHz - 4GHz
COMPREHENSIVE
The RF200 is designed to cover the whole range from 30MHz to 1GH
in one sweep. No need to change antenna part way through the scan.

CALIBRATION
The RF2xx design is fully calibrated on the 10m OATS site at NPL. This data is included with each antenna. For emissions measurement, the RF200 is used in conjunction with the SA1020 pre-amplifier. This 'head' amplifier improves sensitivity and decouples the output lead from the antenna, avoiding
spurious cable influences on the results.
> One antenna covers complete band C and D
(30MHz - GHz)
> Compact antenna for 700MHz - 4GHz
> Supplied with calibration data
> Excellent sensitivity, ideal for EMC testing
> Vertical and horizontal polarization

The RFxx range are specifically designed for general use as EMC emissions measurement antennas. They combine excellent broadband characteristics with high sensitivity and sturdy
construction.
Although primarily used with the Laplace range of analyzers and receivers, they can be used with any other receiver and are supplied with full calibration data so that antenna factors can be entered into
any third party system.
 
In order to achieve optimum performance stability, the RF200 is designed to work with the SA1020 pre-amplifier, located at the head of the support.
This improves sensitivity and ensures that cable configuration does not affect results.
The RF200 is supplied complete with rigid stand and the RF230 is complete with an all plastic miniature tripod.
