AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has introduced its latest automated system for conducting radiated susceptibility testing. The AS18027 AR System has been specifically designed to perform automated testing for MIL-STD 461 requirements. The system will produce fields up to 50 V/m at 1 meter distance from 1 to 18 GHz.
The system is comprised of a variety of components, including one of AR's new dual-band, solid-state amplifiers; signal generation and control equipment. The equipment is housed in a compact, EMI-shielded rack designed to be kept inside the chamber, minimizing cable losses. Capabilities for safety interlock have been integrated into the AS18027 system allowing a single switch to be monitored and to disable all RF generation inside the chamber. Also included in the system are frequency matched and dedicated antennas and other auxiliary equipment. AR's SW1007 EMC test software is provided and allows for complete automation of the system.
