    Systems





If accelerated delivery schedules or budget constraints are driving your purchasing decision for an RF measurement testing solution, we offer economical, pre-engineered systems suitable for most applications and testing needs. Our turnkey solutions are designed for straightforward assembly, in either an anechoic chamber or open facility, depending on the type of system and test application. In many cases, these systems can be delivered and installed in less than one day.

Planar Near-Field
Measurement System

Planar Near-Field
Measurement System
0.9 x 0.9 meters

The PNF-XYV-0.9x0.9 is a pre-configured four axes planar near-field measurement system ideal for measuring medium and high gain antennas (> 15 dBi) with small apertures from S-band to mmWave. The system is constructed of high strength aluminum and can support probe payloads of up to 6 kg (13 lb). This simple design is easy to assemble and align, accurate, and can be quickly dismantled for relocation or storage.
