ABM-6000 Com-Power Biconical Antenna
- Frequency Range: 1 GHz to 6 GHz
- Dipole-like radiation pattern compliant with CISPR 16-1-4 requirements for >1 GHz site validation measurements
- Transmit or receive capability
- Three year warranty
Until recently, radiated emission test site validation requirements and procedures existed only for frequencies between 30 MHz and 1 GHz. Validation requirements at higher frequencies remained "under consideration" literally for decades.
The ABM-6000 is a precisely tuned, linearly polarized, mini-biconical dipole antenna, operating at the low end of the microwave band over the frequency range of 1 to 6 GHz. It may be used as either a transmitting or receiving antenna. The ABM-6000 was specifically designed to comply with radiation pattern specifications detailed in CISPR 16-1-4 (section 188.8.131.52), and is intended to be used as the transmit source antenna for site validations above 1 GHz for radiated emissions test sites, such as OATS (open area test sites), anechoic and semi-anechoic chambers.
