These millimeter wave standard gain conical and pyramidal horns feature a low cost, low VSWR, and a light weight. They’re ideal for applications involving antenna measurements and array elements, and can also be used as feeds for prime focus and Cassegrain antennas.
Broadband antennas, compared to half wave dipoles, reduce test time because the technician did not have to stop the test to adjust the dipole antenna for each frequency. Most compliance standards now require the use of such antennas. The latest version of Mil-Std 461E states the used of broadband double ridge guide horn antenna as the antenna of choice for frequencies above 200 MHz.
The Standard Gain Horn Antennas are designed specifically for utilization in emissions and immunity testing over the frequency range of 1 to 40 GHz. Each antenna is linearly polarized and has medium gain, low VSWR, and a constant antenna factor.
