Radiant Arrow Antenna: ATR26M6G-1

Souderton, PA -- AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation has unveiled a new antenna that represents another advance in antenna technology.

Model ATR26M6G-1 (26 MHZ – 6 GHz / 5,000 watts) is a wide band, high gain antenna with a proprietary design that combines AR's "bent element" approach with additional innovations. The result is an extremely versatile antenna that provides a size reduction of approximately 75% without sacrificing key electrical performance such as gain and bandwidth. The antenna's size and performance make it uniquely suited for use in both traditional applications and in new compact chambers.

The ATR26M6G-1 features a reduced profile and extremely low VSWR, making it an excellent choice for high-field-strength immunity testing. The size reduction minimizes field loss that can result from "room loading." The broad frequency range addresses existing RF susceptibility requirements as well as anticipated future developments and is matched to work with AR's "W," "S" and "A" Series RF power amplifiers. The robust design can accommodate the high power levels necessary to generate significant E-fields.

The ATR26M6G-1, which is tough and durable enough to withstand the rigors of outdoor use, can also be calibrated for RF emissions testing.
