3183B Broadband Mini-Bicon Antenna


ETS-Lindgren's Model 3183B is an end fed Mini-Bicon Antenna designed for CISPR 16-1-4 and ANSI C63.25 chamber validation testing above 1 GHz. The frequency range for the Model 3183B is 1 GHz to 18 GHz. Was named the 2019 EMC Product of the Year!

The radiation pattern is omni directional in the H plane, allowing the antenna to receive signals from every direction around the axis. The range covers most wireless bands worldwide, and is designed for the lowest possible VSWR across the range of operation. The antenna exhibits better than 2: 1 VSWR for most of the range, and never exceeds 5: 1 above 1 GHz. The small size of the antenna enables it to be used for amplifier harmonic measurements when performing tests per IEC 61000-4-3. It is also ideal when performing the TDsVSWR test as per ANSI C63.25 standard.
