3142B EMCO Biconical Antenna
Combining innovative designs with a compact size, our BiConiLog antennas enable users to measure from 26 MHz to
2.0 GHz in one sweep. This single sweep capability eliminates the need for multiple antennas and time-consuming equipment setups, which improves accuracy and saves time and money.
With optional end plates exhibits an average 5.5 dB gain improvement vs. typical hybrid antennas. At some frequencies, a 10 dB gain improvement is achieved. This benefits test engineers in several ways. For immunity measurements, amplifier requirements are reduced because of the antenna's enhanced impedance matching capability. This saves money if buying a new amplifier, and increases power reserves of existing amplifiers. For emission measurements, system sensitivity is increased, which can improve test accuracy.
Both BiConiLog models feature an average VSWR of less than 2.0:1. High Power Input Capacity. Both models accept 1 kW maximum continuous input at frequencies above 60 MHz. Below 60 MHz, it is recommended not to exceed 500 W with the Model 3140 and not to exceed 300 W with the Model 3142B.
EMCO BiConiLog antennas are constructed of lightweight, corrosion-resistant aluminum, providing years of trouble-free indoor and outdoor service. In addition, both models receive a tough powder coat finish, which protects against scratching and abrasion better than painted or bare surfaces.
