Product Details

The Standard Gain Horn Antennas are designed specifically for utilization in emissions and immunity testing over the frequency range of 1 to 40 GHz. Each antenna is linearly polarized and has medium gain, low VSWR, and a constant antenna factor. The Standard Gain Horn performance is very precise and predictable through design parameters. Comparisons of measured versus computed antenna factors and gain have been shown to be +/- .5 dB. Therefore, the antenna is considered to be a standard reference, similar to that of a resonant dipole below 1 GHz. The coax-to-waveguide adapter is the only power-limiting component on the antenna and can be removed if high fields are desired. Each Standard Gain Horn comes with a tripod mount that adapts to any tripod with 1/4-20 male threads. Horizontal and vertical polarization is obtained by rotating the antenna on the tripod.

Included parts:
  • SAS-580 Antenna with attached waveguide to coax adapter and tripod mount
  • Antenna Calibration Manual
