The IXD series dipoles are made from semi-rigid co-axial cable and are gold-plated with SMA connectors supplied. The dimensions are as described in the standards. Each dipole is supplied with an individual calibration report.
SAR system validation dipoles are designed to have low return loss ONLY when presented at a proscribed distance, against a lossy liquid filled box phantom. Spacing distances are specified in the standards i.e.10mm from the liquid (for 1800MHz). Low loss foam spacers are supplied with each IXD dipole, to ensure this condition during measurement.
These dipoles can also prove useful for setting up an air-link connection between a test set and a phone under test.
