This biconical antenna operates in the 1 GHz to 6 GHz frequency range and features a dipole-like radiation pattern, the ability to be used as a transmitting or receiving antenna, and a three year warranty. This antenna is ideal for use as a transmit source antenna for site validations above 1 GHz for radiated emissions test site like OATS (open area test sites), anechoic, and semi-anechoic chambers.
For many years most standards called for the use of a half-wave dipole antenna set for frequencies above 80 MHz. However, to reduce test time, broadband antennas such as the biconical antenna and log periodic antennas began to be accepted.
The SAS-547 Biconical Antenna operates in the 1 GHz to 18 GHz frequency range, and is ideal for broadband field monitoring applications.
