1 – General Information

This manual is a guide to the installation and use of the PMM DR-01 Double ridged Antenna.

Enclosed with this manual are:

• service questionnaire to send back to NARDA if service is required.

• check list of the supplied accessories

The model DR-01 is a broadband double ridged horn antenna operating in the frequency range of 6 GHz - 18 GHz.

The PMM DR-01 is designed for direct connection - without cable or adapters to the 18 GHz receivers PMM 9180.

The DR-01 can be connected to any other RF equipment: small size with high manufacturing and calibration standards make it perfectly suitable for portable applications and in anechoic chambers.

Each unit is individually calibrated before shipment; the test data are supplied with the antenna.

The tripod PMM TR01 is recommended; the tripod stand is made by hard wood assuring the stability needed for holding antenna and receiver PMM

9180; the adjustable joint allows for easy antenna mounting and polarization changing.

Fig. 1-1 PMM DR-01 with PMM 9180

The antenna N-m connector directly matches the 9180 RF input connector.

A dedicated PVC Antenna support provided as a standard accessory can be used with the TR-01 to connect the DR-01 to any other Receiver; the standard ¼” threaded insert, located at the bottom of the Antenna holder allows mounting it on the tripod.

2 – Mounting Instructions

This section provides the information needed to install and use your PMM

DR-01 Double ridged Antenna.

Included are information pertinent to initial inspection, interconnection, environment, mechanical mounting, cleaning, storage and shipment.

Inspect the shipping container for damage.

If the shipping container or cushion material is damaged, it should be kept until the contents of the shipment have been checked for completeness and the antennas have been checked mechanically and electrically.

Verify the accessories availability in the shipping referring to the accessories check list enclosed.

Notify any damage to the carrier personnel as well as the NARDA

Representative.

The PMM DR-01 Double ridged Antenna is constructed of lightweight corrosion-resistant aluminum providing years of indoor and outdoor service.

If the PMM DR-01 Double ridged Antenna should be returned to NARDA for service, please complete the service questionnaire enclosed with the Users

Manual and attach it to the instrument.

To minimize the repair time, be as specific as possible when describing the failure.

If possible, reuse of the original packaging to ship the equipment is preferable.

In case other package should be used, ensure to wrap the instrument in heavy paper or plastic.

Use a strong shipping container and use enough shock absorbing material around all sides of the equipment to provide a firm cushion and prevent movement in the container.

Seal the shipping container securely.

Mark the shipping container FRAGILE to encourage careful handling.

Use a clean, dry, non abrasive cloth for equipment cleaning.

To clean the wooden tripod do not use any solvent, thinner, turpentine, acid, acetone or similar matter to avoid damage to it.

The PMM DR-01 combines small size with high manufacturing and calibration standards, making it perfectly suitable for portable applications and in anechoic chambers, particularly when used in conjunction with the

EMI Receiver unit PMM 9180.

The waveguide and the flared horn elements are made of aluminium and painted; a input N male connector is fixed to the waveguide.

Mounting Instruction 2-1

2.6.1 PMM DR-01

with PMM 9180

To perfectly match the antenna to PMM 9180, a PVC Antenna Holder is provided as a PMM 9180 standard accessory; it balances the receiver and antenna weight when attached to a tripod or antenna mast.

The Antenna Holder is supplied with all parts (screws, nuts, washers, wrench) required for assembling it as shown in the following pictures:

3 - Radiated Emission testing

3.1 Radiated Emission

testing

According to the international Standards, the purpose of this test is to verify that the EUT's radiated electromagnetic emissions are below specified limits during operation.

The receiving antenna can be located either at 3 or 10 meter from the EUT and must scan from 1 to 4 meters in height to locate the EUT's worst emission level.

A typical emissions test system set-up is composed of:

• Receiving antenna;

• Meter receiver.

The antenna parameter relating the incident E-Field to the voltage output of

3.1.1 The receiving

Antenna

the antenna is the Antenna Factor usually provided by the manufacturer in dB/m.

A combination of two or more antennas is used to cover the wide frequency range required by the Standard, from 30 MHz up.

- PMM BC-01 Biconical dipole 30 to 200 MHz;

- PMM LP-02 Log periodic 200 MHz to 3 GHz;

- PMM LP-03 Log periodic 800 MHz to 6 GHz;

- DR-01 Double ridged Antenna 6 GHz to 18 GHz.

3.1.2 The meter receiver The meter receiver is typically either a radio receiver or a spectrum analyzer.
