2175 Antenna Tower
- 1 m to 4 m scan height range
- Fiber optic control lines eliminate RF noise
- Rugged construction for indoor/outdoor use
- On-Axis Antenna Polarization
The Model 2175 MiniMast™ Antenna Tower mast section is made from one continuous piece of square fiberglass tubing. This construction improves stability during ascent and descent of the antenna. Nominal height is 4.6 m. For custom heights, please consult with our sales department.
To facilitate measurement accuracy, off-center beam mounted antennas can be individually height adjusted for true on-axis polarization. Newer “stinger” end mounted antennas slide into a receiver. Hand tightened knobs eliminate the need for tools.
Although designed with compact chambers in mind, the MiniMast can be used outdoors as well. Large polyurethane wheels provide easy rolling on most ground plane surfaces. (As with any mast in an outdoor application, the MiniMast should be fastened to the ground plane using guy ropes). Built with a rugged, high density, fiberglass-reinforced polymer, the unit's mast and cross boom are highly resistant to deterioration from exposure to sunlight. The square shape of the tubing helps prevent rotation and torsional stress experienced with round pipe. A reliable rope and pulley mechanism is used for carrier descent. Supporting up to 9.1 kg (20 lb) of weight, the MiniMast's sturdy boom can be used with almost any EMC antenna.
The 2175 MiniMast™ Antenna Tower is compatible with ETS-Lindgren's multifunction Model 2090 Multi-Device Controller. With this controller, users can independently control two primary devices (e.g. a tower and turntable) with great accuracy. Users also can perform the switching functions of up to four auxiliary devices.
The 2090 Multi-Device Controller is compatible with ETS-Lindgren's TILE! & EMQuest Software, Rohde & Schwarz Model ESKI-EMI Measurement & Evaluation Software and Hewlett Packard's HP85876A Commercial Radiated EMI Measurement Software.
