The Models FS2100, FS2100M1, FS2100M2, and FS2100M3 are plug and play pre-compliance test systems designed for RF radiated immunity and emissions testing. They are designed for applications requiring field strengths of up to 100 V/M CW. They consist of a set of solid state broadband RF power amplifiers, a semi-anechoic test chamber, a broadband electric field monitoring probe, a signal generator, a power meter, dual directional couplers, a RF switch matrix, a color printer, interconnecting RF cables and connectors and a system control PC pre-loaded with radiated immunity and emissions testing software to automate the testing process. It also includes a pre-amplifier and interconnecting cables for use with a user supplied Spectrum Analyzer.
The Model FS2100 free space test system affords a cost effective method of equipping an automated pre-compliance radiated immunity and emissions test facility using an economical compact free space test cell suitable for an EUT size up to 0.5 meter per side. The pre-assembled test cell offers the user a large access door (1.1m (W) x 0.8m (H) opening) with viewing window, interior illumination, fiber optic access pipe, 15 amp, 110/220 VAC single phase filtered mains connection, door open safety interlock and Type N coaxial thru connector. The test cell enclosure is nominally 2.7m (W) x 1.2m (H) x 1.2m (D).
The interior of the cell is lined with a radio frequency absorbing material to create a self contained semi-anechoic enclosure. An internal log periodic antenna launches the higher frequencies into the cell. Lower frequency fields are generated by balanced parallel plate TEM (transverse electromagnetic) transmission lines. The desired field generator is user selectable. Field polarization is vertical. Horizontal polarization is simulated by re-orienting the EUT.
Equipment supporting the cell is housed in a rack cabinet of desk configuration with nominal footprint of 1.5m (W) x 1.0m (D). This configuration provides a convenient tabletop location for the PC, monitor, keyboard, mouse, and printer.
