The RFScanner is an Antenna Pattern Characterization, measurement and Diagnostic Tool on your Lab-bench
The RFScanner is a compact bench-top scanner that characterizes antennas in your own lab environment in real-time.
The RFScanner measures the amplitude and phase of near-field magnetic emissions and uses these data provides far-field patterns, bisections, EIRP and TRP and other parameters in seconds.
The RFScanner give insights into the root causes of antenna performance challenges and help troubleshoot far-field radiation patterns in real-time.
Frequency Range of 300 MHz to 6.0 GHz
Far-Field Patterns and Bisections including EIRP / TRP / PRD, Circular and linear polarization and axial ratio patterns
Near-Field Insights such as Amplitude and Phase distribution available in seconds
Gain, Efficiency and S11 chart with Supported VNAs
Can be used to evaluate either standalone (i.e. passive) antennas or antennas that are embedded in wireless devices (i.e. active antennas).
Simple set up and Easy to use
RFScanner provides far-field patterns, bisections, EIRP and TRP in seconds. Novel near-field results, including amplitude, polarity and phase give insights into the root causes of antenna performance challenges and help troubleshoot far-field radiation patterns.
