Product description

The cam generator TBCG3-RN2 is primarily intended for testing radiated settings. It is a useful tool for validating correct operation of the antenna and preamplifier, as well as accurate tuning and configuration of the spectrum analyzer. It is well characterized in an anechoic chamber and the radiated emission plots can be used as a reference to compare an EUT in a non-ideal setup with the cam generator in the same location.
You can choose between five fixed cam frequencies and an external cam frequency input with a range of 5 kHz to 200 MHz using a rotary switch. A switchable RF amplifier can increase the output signal by 20 decibels (dB).
The comb generator comes with two monopole antennas, a 30 cm monopole for frequencies up to 300-500 MHz and a 10 cm monopole for frequencies above that.
The radiated comb spectrum is characterized from 5 MHz – 6 GHz.

The TBCG3-RN2 has a 50 Ohm output with an N female connector. It is powered by six AA NiMH batteries and comes with an external charger.
The housing is machined from solid aluminium. The bottom panel has a 1/4″ – 20 UNC thread that accepts standard tripod bolts.
