The SAS-542 Folding Biconical Antenna was the first EMC antenna designed for portable compliance testing applications. The Biconical Elements unscrew from the balun and fold neatly into a small size for transportation. For rapid deployment, along with the mobility of a small package, the Folding Biconical elements can be closed similar to an umbrella allowing the antenna to be contained in an optional transit storage case. This Biconical antenna is ideal solution for any traveling compliance consultant performing site attenuation measurements.

For many years most standards called for the use of a half-wave dipole antenna set for frequencies above 80 MHz. However, to reduce test time, broadband antennas such as the biconical antenna and log periodic antennas began to be accepted. Broadband antennas, compared to half wave dipoles, reduce test time because the technician did not have to stop the test to adjust the dipole antenna for each frequency. A.H. Systems' 7 models of Biconical Antennas operate efficiently over the frequency range of 20 MHz to 18 GHz. Suitable for FCC, MIL-STD, VDE, TEMPEST, and immunity testing, each Biconical antenna will provide reliable, repeatable measurements.
