Compact System Tests EMC Signals Up to 6 GHz
Teseq Inc., a leading developer and provider of instrumentation and systems for EMC emission and immunity testing, has introduced the new ITS 6006 (Immunity Test System) for radiated EMC emissions testing over an extended 80 MHz to 6 GHz frequency range in a wide variety of EMC applications, including those found in the information technology, medical, RF, traffic telematics and mobile communications markets.
The compact ITS 6006 is comprised of an RF signal generator with AM and PM modulators, RF switches, inputs for up to 3 external power meters, EUT monitoring and control ports, amplifier control outputs and software for comprehensive EMC testing. This makes the system a cost-effective, integrated solution featuring simplified cabling, connections and set up time, which leads to less error sources, insertion loss and space required to house the unit. It also provides 6 GHz broadband compatibility of all included components.
Digital inputs and outputs are combined with analog and optical inputs for increased versatility and functionality. Multiple EUTs can be monitored and controlled via the ITS 6006’s four TTL outputs and eight inputs, which include two digital inputs with a voltage range of 0 V to 24 V, one analog port and one optical port, saving set up time and associated costs.
The ITS 6006’s integrated RF switch network allows the RF signal generator to be switched to one of up to four directly connected power amplifiers. Two additional RF switches can be used to combine two amplifier output paths into a single antenna connection.
For even further system flexibility, two rugged RF power meters with a range from 10 MHz to 6 GHz and from -40 dBm to +20 dBm are available. Up to three Teseq PMR 6006 units can be directly connected to the ITS 6006 with software that allows multiple power meter readings simultaneously. The other meter, the PMU 6006, connects to, and is powered from, the USB interface.
The ITS 6006 network can be controlled remotely via RS232, LAN and USB. The unit includes software that performs basic and configuration function tests including scalar quadripole measurements for measuring RF cable insertion loss. The ITS 6006 can be used in combination with Teseq’s WIN 6000 or Compliance 5 comprehensive test system software.
When the ITS 6006 is integrated with testing software, data is transferred via Teseq’s fast, universal USO 4013 USB to serial/optical converter, which has both a serial port and an RS232 port that can be optionally configured for RS485, as well as an optic cable up to 24 m for the RS232 connection inside a chamber.
Fiber optically-isolated monitoring connections on the input/output box ensure there is no influence of the EUT test on the monitoring computer. Similarly, the isolated connections also guarantee no influence from outside the test chamber to the EUT.
The ITS 6006 features a 3.5” TFT color display and is 19 inches wide by 4.25 inches high. The storage box for the system measures 23.5 inches long, 21.5 inches wide and 14.5 inches high.
Pricing for the ITS 6006 starts at $ 23,900. Delivery is 8 - 12 ARO.
