ANTENNA MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS & PRODUCTS

Diamond Engineering D6050 Series

Diamond Engineering D6050 Side View Diamond Engineering D6025 Series Angle

The D6050 Series is a highly versatile multi-axis antenna measurement system suited for devices up to 25 pounds (11.5 kg). The non-metallic, belt-driven head provides a low-reflection environment ideal for electrically small or omni-directional antennas.

Key Features and Functions

2D & 3D Spherical Measurements (AZ over EL, EL over AZ, XYZ planes and more)

Far Field Parameters (gain, beamwidth, efficiency, directivity, polarization, isolation, and more)

OTA Measurements (TRP/TIS)

Phase Center Measurements

Spherical Near Field (optional)

Highlights

Dual rotary joints

Multiple configuration options

Indexable mast offset up to 23” from center

Non-metallic DUT mounting axis

Ultra-high precision (up to 0.02º)

Ideal for most antennas up to 25 pounds
