EMF and Direction Finding Seminars in PfullingenSource: Narda Safety Test Solutions GmbH
Join us in Pfullingen, Germany on October 15 to 17, 2014 to learn more about the development and expansion of practical and theoretical knowledge of signal analysis and the localization of hitherto unknown signals. These are truly practical seminars with application-oriented measurement exercises.
Exposure Measurements at Radio Base Stations with the SRM 3006
Beginners, advanced users and professionals in the field of selective electromagnetic field measurement; theoreticians and practitioners; also ideal for users and those interested in well-founded application guidance for the SRM-3006.
Expanding and consolidating theoretical knowledge in the field of radio signal exposure measurements and increasing practical experience by means of versatile, everyday measurement tutorials.
Date in 2014
Monday 13th / Tuesday 14th October 2014 in Pfullingen
Fundamentals of field strength measurement
Relevant standards and recommendations; frequency-selective and broadband measurements compared; spatial and time-domain variations in field strength and the resulting consequences for measurements; extrapolating for maximum system load; comparison of “sweeping” and “raster” methods; correct measurement bandwidth; RMS and peak detection; strategies for detection of safety distances.
Introduction to SRM-3006 and its measurement features
Frequency-selective measurement, channel power, safety evaluation, code-selective measurement of WCDMA (UMTS) / LTE signals and timed exposure measurements with level recorder and scope mode; introduction to the SRM-Tools and SRM-TS software packages.
Initial measurement practice with the SRM
Application measurements - theory and practice
Theoretical introduction to frequencies and signal structures of various wireless services and the associated features of recording and standards-compliant evaluation including any necessary extrapolation for maximum system load; practical exercises in measuring major wireless services (e.g. AM and FM radio, digital radio (DAB) and TV (DVB-T), GSM (incl. TETRA), UMTS, LTE, impulse radar signals).
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Wuschek
Deggendorf Institute of Technology
€ 895.00 for both days, plus VAT where applicable. Individual days can also be booked (fee € 495.00 per day, plus VAT where applicable)
Signal localization and identification using the Handheld Direction Finder IDA 2
New IDA users, professionals and communications engineers with a basic knowledge of signal analysis and interference measurement relating to electromagnetic signals; ideally, users will bring their own instruments with them to the seminar and will already be familiar with the basic functions of the instrument.
Development and expansion of practical and theoretical knowledge of signal analysis and the localization of hitherto unknown signals. A truly practical seminar with all-round application oriented measurement exercises.
Wednesday 15th October to Friday 17th October 2014
Location: Pfullingen/ Eningen u.A.
Fundamentals and exercises in signal analysis
Making settings in a sensible order, e.g. selecting the measurement frequency (Fcent and FSPAN), resolution bandwidth (RBW) and sensitivity. Characteristics and selection of direction finding antennas; preparation for measurement illustrated using practical interference mechanisms and their coupling paths; signal characteristics examined: noise-like, clocked, continuous wave (CW) and combinations of these. Polarizations and dominant reflections. Special features of conducted propagation searches.
Signal recognition and direction finding
Using software tools; SmartDF; manual bearing and horizontal scan, discrete triangulation when localizing signals that occur only briefly (push to talk). Detection of in-band interferers using the new High Resolution Spectrogram (HRS) function; analysis of the generated bearing diagrams; close search near the object (e.g. within a building)
Practical exercises and demonstrations
A selection of practical signals that will be traced using the IDA: Time signal transmitters, VHF in-band interference, Thuraya satellite service, private mobile radio (PMR) using taxi radio as an example, WLAN, DECT telephony, “cable TV interferes with LTE”, walkie-talkie traffic.
