Product Details

Looking for the perfect for low frequency omni-directional antenna. The SAS-550-1B active monopole antenna is ideal for instantaneous bandwidth scanning (without tuning) of electric fields from 9 KHz - 60 MHz. It's well suited for test technicians performing FCC, MIL-STD and TEMPEST low frequency tests. A fully charged hefty 2000 mAH battery will last a full work day for continuous testing, and this 104cm rod antenna has a signal output connector that is electrically bonded to the matching network case per MIL-STD 461F. This model boasts A.H. Systems' amazing 3 year warranty too, so you've got complete peace of mind.

The SAS-550-1B comes with a telescoping rod, ground plane, high impedance matched preamplifier and battery charger.

    Included parts:
  • SAS-550-1B Antenna Base with ground plane
  • Telescoping Antenna Element
  • Battery Charger
  • Antenna Calibration Manual

* Calibration data and certificate included.

ECSM Fixture

ECF-10 - ECSM Fixture

The ECF-10 is a 10 pF capacitance fixture used for system checks and calibration of the active monopole antennas. One of the functions of the matching network is to convert the high impedance input of the antenna element to the 50 ohm impedance of the measurement receiver. The 10 pF capacitor ensures that the correct source impedance is present during the check.
