RF Semi Anechoic Antenna Test Chambers

ATC absorber material 18 inch at head and door side, 12 inch at body

AWT Global’s ATC series low PIM Antenna Test Chambers are designed for testing RF devices and antennas from 380 MHz to 6000 MHz. Not only are today’s antennas required to show excellent transmission characteristics, but they must also deliver very low passive intermodulation distortion (PIM) to guarantee high quality and distortion free data transmission. Besides high shielding factors of more than 90dB, our ATC chambers feature  very low residual passive intermodulation distortion which makes it ideal for low PIM antenna testing.

AWT Global’s ATC semi anechoic chambers are delivered turnkey. No installation or assembly is required. Our chambers are ready to go immediately. This flexibility allows to integrate ATCs optimally into the production flow. Even when flow arrangement changes are required later, due to their wheeled frames, ATCs can be placed easily at new locations.

To suite customer specific requirements, ATCs are available in different lengths, diameters and with a variety of absorber material types and thicknesses. All ATCxxB chambers come standard with 18 inch absorber material at head and door sides and 12 inch at the main body. Larger types (ATCxxB-2-18 / ATCxxB-2-18T) come with 18 inch absorber at head, door and body.
