Agilent / HP / Keysight 85370A
85370A Antenna Positioner Encoder
This Antenna Positioner Encoder allows manual antenna patterns to be easily measured with the Agilent 8530A microwave receiver using virtually any antenna positioning system.
This unit provides positioner information to the Agilent 8530A microwave receiver.
This unit eavesdrops on the synchro lines from the antenna positioner, decodes the synchro signals, and sends the positioning information to the receiver through a general purpose digital interface.
When the positioner is manually moved through the desired angles, the receiver measures and displays the antenna pattern.
Antenna pattern parameters such as start and stop angles as well as angular sampling increment can be selected by the user from the front panel of the microwave receiver.
Existing manual antenna ranges can be upgraded to a modern microwave receiver
Positioner offset angle can be entered from the receiver to accomodate easily boresighting the antenna
The positioner angle for the active axis (corrected for the offset angle) is displayed continuously
Form Factor: Benchtop
