An omnidirectional antenna is an antenna which radiates power uniformly in one plane with a directive pattern shape in a perpendicular plane. This pattern is often described as "donut shaped".
The Biconical Antenna is considered a standard workhorse for every compliance test lab. Used in a variety of applications such as radiated emissions, immunity and shielding effectiveness testing; this application note will help guide the decision process of which Biconical Antenna to purchase.
Our tunable dipole antennas have a set of telescoping elements that needs to be adjusted to the frequency of interest. Here is a lookup table of our Tuned Dipole Antennas and the appropriate element lengths for each balun.
Antenna Factor is used in EMC/EMI testing to convert received voltage to the radiated field intensity. This article explains the term and it's deviations.
The antenna is one of the least understood components in an EMC test instrumentation set-up, and a poor choice of antenna(s) can lead to multiple problems. this webinar, presented by AH Systems, guides you through the key parameters that need to be considered when selecting an EMC test antenna.
