The Model MT06000A (MultiStar Multi-Tone Tester) is a state-of-the-art system designed to test RF Radiated Immunity faster than ever before possible . By testing multiple frequencies (tones) at once, test times can be reduced by a factor proportional to the number of tones selected . The number of tones is only limited by the signal generator bandwidth (150 MHz) and the size of the amplifier used with the system .
The MT06000A contains all the instruments needed to perform radiated immunity testing for IEC 61000-4-3 specification except the required amplifiers, antennas and directional couplers . Amplifiers can be sized and selected based on your required field levels and testing needs . Up to 4 RF amplifiers and directional couplers can be controlled and monitored and power can be delivered to up to 4 antennas to generate the desired fields . The system contains a vector signal generator, a vector signal analyzer, a RF pre-amplifier, a RF field probe and monitor, an RF switch matrix, and automated radiated immunity test software.
Everything is contained in a single housing, which eliminates setup issues . The software includes automated routines to calibrate the field and maximize the speed of test (most tones possible) while still meeting the Linearity and Harmonics requirements of the specification . In the event of a EUT failure, margin investigation (thresholding) and traditional single tone testing can be performed causing a slowing of the test only in the areas of concern . This system has the versatility needed for every test laboratory and equipment manufacturer while adding the benefit of reduced test times and greater throughput.
