Antenna Simulator Kit
Nautel offers antenna simulators for use with Nautel Automatic Antenna Tuning Units (ATU’s).
The antenna simulators provide maintenance personnel with a typical static antenna load found at LF/MF transmission sites to allow for full testing of the ATU.
- Simulated and Fixed antenna capacitance.
- Simulated and Adjustable Resistance.
Suitably rated, high voltage RF capacitors provide a fixed capacitance value which is equivalent to the capacitance that can be expected from a typical antenna system.
The capacitance value supplied in the LF/MF Antenna Simulator will be dependent on the model of the ATU with which it is to be used.
A fixed-tapped matching transformer transforms a 50 ohm resistive load (customer supplied) to a lower resistance which is representative of a typical value of antenna ground plane system resistance.
The matching transformer has several tap settings, allowing for a number of antenna resistance selections.
