Amplifier Research DER2018 Digital EMI Receiver 20 Hz 18 GHz

Description

Amplifier Research DER2018 is a state-of-the-art DSP-based emissions receiver with an integrated computer capable of reducing your valuable test time from days to minutes. It is extremely easy to operate with all functions menu driven and displayed on a supplied 23" widescreen monitor.

This digital receiver offers continuous coverage from 20 Hz to 18 GHz with an instantaneous bandwidth of 140 MHz. Peak, Quasi-peak, Average, and RMS-Average detections are processed simultaneously up to 8,192 frequency points and interpolated with a proprietary algorithm to allow scans in seconds, catch short duration transient disturbances, and identify emissions using a fast time-base 3-D display. This receiver combines state-of-the-art sensitivity, dynamic range, accuracy and convenience of operation. It complies with CISPR-16-1-1 edition 3.0 2010-01.

The Multistar Precision DSP Receiver system includes a built-in computer and interfaces with standard data storage, high resolution video devices and features a removable hard drive. A 23" widescreen monitor, keyboard and mouse are included.

Features

Emission Testing Solutions to the following standards:

  • MIL-STD-461D, E & F
  • DO160D, E & F
  • CISPR 11/EN 55011
  • CISPR 22/EN 55022
  • CISPR 14/EN 55014
  • FCC Part 15
  • 140 MHz-wide, pre-selected, instantaneous bandwidth*

PEAK, QUASI-PEAK, AVERAGE, and RMS-AVERAGE detections are processed simultaneously at 8,192 frequency points and interpolated using a proprietary algorithm. These features enable the user to:

  • Display and record detector results as continuous spectra with 1 Hz resolution
  • Scan 4 GHz every second with the PEAK detector, i.e. covering 1 - 18 GHz in 4.25 seconds
  • Sweep 9 kHz - 30 MHz (bands A & B) in 2 seconds with all CISPR detectors
  • Process 30 - 1000 MHz (bands C & D) in 7 seconds with all CISPR detectors
  • Reduce multi-day tasks to minutes
  • Catch short-duration transient disturbances
  • Identify emissions using fast time-base 3-D display

Easy to use – all functions are menu driven.

Internal wide band calibration source expedites periodic checking and re-calibration of the receiver’s amplitude response.

Capability for user to set up, and save for future use, all of the needed test parameters including limit lines, start/stop frequencies, IF bandwidth, samples per bandwidth, dwell time at each frequency, input port selection vs. test frequency, transducer correction table, input attenuation, units to be used for the displayed level units, and more. 

*140MHz instantaneous bandwidth is available in bands C, D and E with -6dB resolution bandwidth ≥ 50 kHz. The entire bands A and B are covered instantaneously with -6dB bandwidths at least 100Hz and 9 kHz respectively. With narrower resolution bandwidth settings, the instantaneous bandwidth is proportionally reduced.
