Test Equipment Description

Diamond Engineering DAMS 6100 18 GHz Heavy-Duty Antenna Test Turntable

Wide Frequency Ranges
Capable of measuring ranges from DC to 6 GHz (DAMS 5100), DC to 18 GHz (DAMS 6100) or DC to 40 GHz (DAMS 7100).

Dual-Axis Movement
360º azimuth range with up to ± 90º of elevation tilt.

High Resolution
Capable of .25º steps azimuth and .25º steps elevation (DAMS 5100), or up to .10º steps azimuth and .10º steps elevation (DAMS 6100/7100).

Weight Capacity
Able to carry payloads of up to 150 lbs.

Precision Rotary Joint
The rotary joint is constructed from a special carbon based material that allows noiseless measurements up to 6 GHz (DAMS 5100), 18 GHz (DAMS 6100) or 40 GHz (DAMS 7100).

Deluxe Measurement Software
All systems come complete with DAMS Measurement Studio Pro which features spherical plot module, efficiency, and other advanced processing modules.

Spherical Plot Module
Map measured antenna data over a sphere or an ideal isotropic sphere.

Complete Warranty
Our 3-year warranty covers all parts, labor and technical support.

Included RF Cables
All systems include two 10’ calibrated measurement cables. Precision low-loss SMA cables (DAMS 5100), precision ultra-low-loss SMA cables certified to 18 GHz (DAMS 6100) or precision low-loss cables with 2.92mm “K” connectors certified to 40 GHz (DAMS 7100).
