Medium Cylindrical Near-Field Scanner Systems
Medium Cylindrical Near-field Measurement Systems are ideal for measuring broad beam (azimuth) antennas with apertures less than twelve feet making them ideal for testing stacked linear arrays. The scanners consist of a vertical probe tower with up to a 12’ (3.7 m) travel, high capacity stepper motor based azimuth positioner, control computer, software and cabling. The high capacity probe carriage can accommodate probes as large as a WR1500 including optional roll and translation stages. This simple design is easy to assemble and align.
