AMS18G 3D Antenna Measurement System

Overview
The new AMS18G series Antenna Measurement System is a compact, user-friendly system suitable for both indoor and outdoor antenna measurements. It comes with a dual-axis rotating platform (elevation plane and azimuth plane) and an integrated antenna plotting software. It is fully customizable for use with various types of vector network analyzers.

Sample MATLAB® codes are also provided for 2D/3D antenna pattern plotting.

Feature Highlights

  • Quick Setup
  • Dual-axis movement (EL and AZ planes)
  • High resolution (up to 1ºper step)
  • Wide frequency range (0.8 to 18 GHz)
  • Max 2.5 kg antenna DUT
  • Compatible with various VNAs
  • Measured data in standard *.csv format
  • Sample MATLAB codes for 2D/3D antenna pattern plots
