This Equivalent Capacitance Fixture is used for the verification and calibration of the active monopole antennas per the MIL-STD 461 standard.
All new active monopole antennas have been re-designed to accept a telescoping rod with a 1/4-20 thread instead of a BNC connector. This new connection makes for a better electrical performance as well as an improved rugged design.
Please note that this new design will not accept the use of the ECF-10 (with the BNC connector) please refer to the new ECF-10K Equivalent capacitance fixture kit that will also inlude a BNC tee and 50 ohm load (all of which is required to preform an antenna systems check).
NOTE: MIL-STD 461F prohibits the use of other types of calibration networks or voltage dividing fixtures. Stray capacitance may exist in such fixtures. The ECF-10 is designed per SAE ARP 958 and can be used with MIL-STD 461E & MIL-STD 461F.
