Key Features
  • Frequency Range:
    • Cage Elements: 30 MHz to 1 GHz
    • Cone Elements: 30 MHz to 3 GHz
  • Omni-directional Pattern Ideal for:
    • Chamber Characterization
    • Broadband Spectrum Monitoring
    • Field Measurements
  • Flexible Mounting

ETS-Lindgren's Model 3180D Broadband Mini-Bicon Antenna has been designed for optimal performance across the frequency range of 30 MHz to 1 GHz (cage elements) and 30 MHz to 3 GHz (cone elements). The 3180Ds uniquely designed elements provide a omnidirectional pattern, without the beam splitting.

The model 3180D is ideal for the free space NSA (FSNSA) test for fully anechoic rooms. Its small size allows for harmonic monitoring when testing per the IEC 61000-4-3.

Product Features

Frequency Range

The model 3180D covers the traditional frequency range for EMC measurements. Additionally, the 3180D covers all of the VHF and UHF bands, making it ideal for spectrum monitoring of FM, TV and some cellular phones. With the small cone elements in place, the 3180D can be used up to 3 GHz.

Radiation Pattern

The model 3180D has been designed to have a radiation pattern that is omnidirectional. The elements have been optimized to avoid any splitting of the main radiation beam in the elevation cut.

Flexible Mounting System

The model 3180D antenna includes both an EMCO block mount and a rear stinger mount.
