Narda Standard Gain Horns Cover up to 40 GHz in Bands
NY – October 7, 2009 - Narda, an L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL) company, today introduced a family of
standard gain horn antennas for EMI and EMC testing applications that cover every waveguide band from 2.6 to 40
600 Series horns include seven standard models that cover 2.6 to 3.95 GHz, 3.95 to 5.85 GHz, 5.4 to 8.2 GHz.
8.2 to 12.4 GHz, 14 to 18 GHz, 18 to 26.5 GHz, and 26.5 to 40 GHz. Directivity patterns for all models include a
beamwidth in the E and H planes from 23 deg. at 40 GHz to 34 deg. at 2.6 GHz. Sidelobes in the H plane are more
than 20 dB down and first sidelobes in the E plan are 13 dB down and second sidelobes are 18 dB down.
at mid-frequency is 16.5 dBi +/-1.5 dB over the operating bandwidth. VSWR of all models is 1.15:1 or less, and
weight ranges from 6 lb. for the 2.6 to 3.95 GHz model to 4.5 g for the 18 to 40 GHz model. The
600 Series horns antennas are supported by a variety of waveguide-to-coax adapters for either Type-N female or
SMA/3.5/2.9-mm female connectors. All models are available for immediate delivery.
