We've just upgraded our mechanical design software to Solidworks 2021. The software contains design & performance improvements which allow us to considerably increase the modelling accuracy & efficiency of our designs, in addition to shortening the time spent configuring & analysing assemblies.
The Narda SignalShark Remote unit provides a powerful permanent monitoring solution. It has a small form factor, easy to install in a 19 inch rack or a tight corner of a vehicle for mobile applications. It uses SCPI for remote control commands and can run third party applications.
New at Security & Policing 2019 is the Automatic Direction Finding Antenna (ADFA) From Narda. Coupled with the SignalShark real time spectrum analyser it is a powerful tool for either fixed or mobile monitoring of radio signals.
Most of us in the RF & microwave world are familiar with spectrum analysers but what’s the difference between a real time spectrum analyser (RTSA) and a more traditional swept-tuned instrument? The clue is in the name and a swept-tuned analyser sweeps from left to right displaying measurement results sequentially i.e. not real time.
So how does a micro electromechanical switch have such good power handling capabilities? The answer is that Menlo use the same cell design and by combining many cells in series or paralell the voltage or current handling capability can be scaled up as required, it's scalable from mW to kW.
We're pleased to be representing Menlo Micro whose Digital Micro Switch (DMS) platform is a true game changer, a micro sized electromechanical switch with high reliability.
The Sunsight AAT-30 is the class leading Antenna Alignment Tool used for sector antenna alignment. Now we have the Sunsight Microwave Path Alignment Kit for point to point microwave links.
We were recently asked by BBC South Today for some input on a news story discussing the potential for TV interference from 4G base stations.
Precision measurement and reliable communications need a solid reference. Network analyzer measurements are only as good as the noise they themselves generate.
The PE42020 is a HaRP™ technology-enhanced SPDT True DC RF switch that operates from zero Hertz up to 8 GHz with integrated RF, analog and digital functions.
We now offer MITEQ's UPC2 Uplink Power Control Unit. It is rack-mountableUPC2 Uplink Power Control, designed to adjust the strength of uplink signals to compensate for varying weather conditions. The UPC2 can control up to ten uplink channels. The attenuator channels are available for L-Band or 70/140 MHz IF frequencies.
The sales team has just had three successful days at the Security & Policing exhibition at Farnborough. The new IDA 2 interference and direction analyser https://www.narda-sts.com/en/rf-testing/products/ida-2/ida-2-basic-unit/ was of particular interest to both UK & international visitors.
Well the answer to the question is despite a number of trials we’re still not sure. It’s tough to get to the truth of the matter because trials to date have had some issues like base stations not operating on full power or maybe the TV channels for the given area aren’t the most likely to be affected.
It was excellent earlier in the year when we won a large contract from DMSL (an organisation funded by and representing the 4G operators) to supply filters for use by both individual consumers and ‘communal’ units designed for use in premises with a shared aerial e.g. blocks of flats.
Call it what you will; 4G or LTE (long term evolution), the latest mobile phone technology which will shortly be rolled out across the UK has the capacity to interfere with TV signals.
For defence applications where detection of radio signals by opposing forces is a potential problem there is an alternate solution; infra red (IR).
