The AC-220 biconilog antenna is a broadband antenna designed to operate in the 30 MHz - 2000 MHz frequency range for electromagnetic compatibility testing. This antenna combines the electrical properties of a Biconical and a Log Periodic antenna into one single hybrid antenna.
The main advantage of a biconilog antenna is that it covers the frequency range of the biconical antenna and log periodic antenna. This eliminates antenna switching (typically at 300 MHz) and allows continuous sweep measurement without a frequency band break. The broadband matching network located in the rear improves antenna response at the lower frequencies.
For susceptibility testing the antenna can be used in the in a shielded room for generating electromagnetic fields. It can handle up to 500 Watts input at its terminals.
This antenna can be used in combination with our AT-812 Antenna Tripod. This collapsible tripod has been designed for indoor and outdoor EMC/EMI testing.
All elements are constructed using aluminum with corrosion resistant conductive coating. The rear triangle elements can be removed for storage and transportation.Features:
