Comb Generator Emitter - CGE02

The Comb Generator Emitter 02 (CGE02) is a compact, battery powered, reference signal source that generates a broadband radiated and/ or conducted output up to 26 GHz.
When used as a verification reference source, the known output allows unknowns within systems or components to be measured or calculated.
The compact size allows small enclosures to be evaluated when used as a reference source for shielding effectiveness measurements.
The CGE02 can be supplied with a 50 Ω SMA output connector for direct connection to conducted test systems, or to an external antenna in order to generate test fields for evaluating radiated emission test systems.
Alternatively, to achieve the best repeatability and compactness for purely radiated applications, the CGE02 can be supplied with an integrated antenna (CGE02R).
 
The CGE02 harmonic steps can be switched between 250 MHz and 256 MHz as standard, allowing more frequency points to be measured than is possible with a fixed-frequency source.
 
Features:
• Stable output - Repeatable measurements
• Conducted and radiated options - Evaluation of both conducted and radiated systems
• 250 MHz to 26 GHz output
- Applications across a broad frequency spectrum
- Applicable to harmonics of high frequency systems
• Compact and portable
- Comparisons between sites and environments
- Shielding effectiveness measurements even of small enclosures
• Battery powered
- No power or interconnecting cables affecting measurements
 
Applications:
• Shielding effectiveness of small enclosures e.g. PCs, servers, wireless communications equipment
• Radiated measurement systems validation and verification
• Reference source for:
- Daily pre-test verification checks if required by the accreditation authorities
- Long term performance monitoring - Spectrum analyzer / receiver pre-checks
• Investigation of reverberation (mode stirred) chamber behavior • Characterization of filter performance
• Cable loss measurements
• Inter-laboratory test programs
• Proficiency test programs
