ETS-Lindgren's Model 2006 Light Duty Azimuth Positioner is designed to provide azimuth rotation of a lightweight test object. It is intended primarily as a basic solution for azimuth (polar) pattern measurements of passive and active devices. The model 2006 is fully compatible with our EMQuest & EMQuest Lite Antenna Pattern Measurement Software for passive antenna pattern measurement. For pattern measurement of active devices, a software upgrade to our fully functional standard EMQuest EMQ- 100 Antenna Pattern Measurement Software is recommended.

Product Features


The model 2006 offers positioning resolution of 0.02. Objects can be rotated in a continuous 360 clockwise/ counter-clockwise direction at one of eight preset speeds.

Low RF Coupling

The model 2006 has been carefully designed from the frame up to offer minimal physical obstruction to RF fields. The motor and control unit is contained in an RF-shielded enclosure, with the entire drive assembly fitting in a 61 cm x 61 cm (24 in x 24 in) square, which is compatible with the base dimensions of typical microwave absorber material. A 5.08 cm (2 in) flat filter foam absorber block covers the surface of the drive box and turntable for additional RF isolation from the Device Under Test (DUT). An expanded polystyrene foam column supports DUTs of up to 25.0 kg (55 lb).


The model 2006 is controlled directly from a computer via Ethernet connection. As the model 2006 has fiber optic control lines, an included Ethernet to fiber converter needs to be used for connection. A simple command set is provided for development of controlling software, or the unit may be interfaced to EMQuest Software.

Indoor Use

The model 2006 is designed for indoor use. For outdoor positioning systems, please contact ETS-Lindgren for additional information.
