We work across the UK & Internationally to offer extensive UKAS Calibration & EMC Testing

Antenna Calibration

UKAS Accredited Antenna Calibration

 

At ETC we specialise in UKAS Accredited Antenna Calibration and are one of only a few calibration companies in the UK that can offer UKAS Accredited calibration results and certificates for a wide range of antennas.

We have particular expertise in antenna calibration because we operate our own UKAS EMC Test facility as well as UKAS Accredited Calibration Lab and understand the implications to your business if your Antennas are unavailable for testing when you were expecting them. We can turn around most Antennas in 5 working days when they are booked in advance and are sometimes able to offer this turnaround on short notice depending on availability.

Most end users of antennas will have their own specific requirements for antenna calibration so please let us know your requirements when requesting a quote. We calibrate for free space, ARP958. DEFSTD 59-411 10m & 3m direct phase centre.

 

Antenna Type Range Best Uncertainty (±) UKAS Accredited Comments
Monopole Antenna 20 Hz to 100 MHz 1.4 dB/m Yes Equivalent capacitance method
Biconical Antenna 20 MHz to 1 GHz 1.5 dB Yes Measurement distance 10m, 3.0m and 1.0m
Bilog & Hybrid Antenna 20 MHz to 18 GHz 1.5 dB Yes Measurement distances 3.0m and 1.0m; calculated results for 10m and for Free Space
Broadband Dipole Antenna 20 MHz to 1 GHz 1.5 dB Yes Measurement distance 10m, 3.0m and 1.0m
Log Period Antenna 80 MHz to 18 GHz 1.5 dB Yes Measurement distances 3.0m and 1.0m; calculated results for 10m and for Free Space
Horn Antenna 200 MHz to 26.5 GHz 1.5 dB Yes Horn Measurement at 1.0m and 3.0m
Voltage Reflection Coeffecient 30 MHz to 18 GHz 0.09 Yes  

We are able to offer other in-house antenna calibration, traceable to national standards outside of this range up to 26.5GHz unless listed differently above. Please contact a member of our EMC department for more information.

We also operate a nationwide collection and delivery service for antenna calibration which means we can offer fast turn-around times – usually 5 working days if booked in advance. UKAS Accredited results are generated by our expert EMC Engineers and are performed in our CISPR 16 compliant anechoic chamber, or on our CISPR 16 compliant OATS using the standard antenna method or ARP958
