CEDAR PARK, Texas, December 3, 2010 – ETS-Lindgren announced the latest addition to its family of double-ridged waveguide horn antennas for wireless and EMC measurements. The new Model 3119 boasts ultra broadband performance, sweeping from 400 MHz to 6 GHz without stopping for band breaks, making it ideal for automated testing and coverage of all the commercial wireless frequencies. In addition, the Model 3119 exhibits high gain and low VSWR across its operational frequency band, resulting in efficient amplifier usage and high field strengths. The antenna accepts up to 1500 watts of continuous power input, with up to 2500 watts of peak power.
“The electrical characteristics of this antenna were designed and modeled using electromagnetic simulation software,” said Dr. Vince Rodriguez, ETS-Lindgren’s Senior Principal Antenna Design Engineer. “Our RF engineers worked with our manufacturing team to produce a practical and affordable realization of the modeling process. The result is an exceptional antenna that provides a uniform illumination of target surfaces and a high gain for better amplifier power use. We’re very proud of this antenna’s performance,” added Dr. Rodriguez.
Optional mounting systems are available for the Model 3119 antenna, including a tripod mount and a rear “stinger” mount. The stinger mount permits on-axis rotation/polarization. The back plate has four each 3/8” 16 thread mounting holes for custom mounts. All production units are individually calibrated at ETS-Lindgren’s A2LA accredited lab and are shipped with a manual, actual antenna factors and a signed Certificate of Calibration Conformance.
