Model ATE10K30MA is a high-power electric field generator designed to generate intense E fields over a frequency range of 10 kHz to 30 MHz. It is recommended for use in susceptibility testing.
The ATE10K30MA is small enough to be handled easily in shielded rooms, while being compatible with the high RF output powers available from modern RF amplifiers like the AR RF/ Microwave Instrumentation “A” Series. The field generating elements are removable for convenient storage and transportation. Tripod mounts are provided on two edges of the housing to facilitate vertically and horizontally polarized testing.
The ATE10K30MA consists of two parallel cylindrical field generating elements spaced approximately 1 meter apart. The elements are attached to a rugged dielectric housing. Within the ventilated housing are low inductance high-power RF terminating resistors and a 50 ohm-to-450 ohm impedance transformer. The transformer is a modern, low-loss design that handles the full power specification over the full frequency range without need for band switching and without saturation. The transformer includes a robust current choke, which decouples the coaxial feed line.
Some variations of this model provide a fan option. Forced air cooling requires AC voltage for operation. This is switchable (120/240 VAC, 50/60 Hz) and is factory-set, if specified upon ordering. The forced air cooling option is available for retrofit on existing E-field generators. Contact factory for details.
