New Horn Antenna for EMC Test Applications from 200 MHz to 2 GHz

Link Microtek has introduced a new horn antenna that operates from 200 MHz to 2 GHz. This open-sided, linearly polarized antenna is intended for EMC test applications. The AM0.2-2HA can be used as either the transmitter or a receiver for measuring product immunity or emissions in accordance with international EMC standards laid down by organisations such as IEC, ISO and CISPR.

The antenna provides excellent gain uniformity, with the gain varying from 5 to 9 dBi over the entire frequency range. It can handle up to 200 Watts of power and features a low average VSWR of 1.6:1, a field strength capability of 250 V/m at 1m and a nominal impedance of 50 ohms.

The horn antenna is equipped with a precision N-type female connector and a mounting bracket that enables the user to switch between vertical and horizontal polarizations. A standard camera thread allows easy mounting on a wide variety of tripods.

Designed and manufactured at Link’s premises in Basingstoke, the AM0.2-2HA antenna is fabricated from aluminium to provide a rugged, corrosion-resistant construction. It measures 980 x 980 x 730 mm and weighs only 12 kg.
