DAMS 6000 Features
 

2 Axis Movement
360 degrees continuous or sweeping horizontal movement with up to +/- 45 degrees vertical tilt.

 

Calibrated SMA Cables
System Includes 2 10' precision SMA Measurement cables certified to 18 GHz

Precision 18GHz. rotary joint
The rotary joint is constructed from a special carbon based material that allows noiseless measurements up to 18 GHz.

 

Ultra High Resolution
The ultra high resolution option is capable of .0625 degree increments with smoother operation and much higher torque than the standard resolution option.


Deluxe Measurement Software
The DAMS 6000 comes with an Enhanced version of the DAMS Measurement Studio software featuring special plots and functions.

 


Includes All Optional Accessories
The DAMS 6000 is a complete measurement solution that includes everything except the VNA and Computer (optional)


Spherical Plot Module

Map measured antenna data over a sphere or an ideal Isotropic sphere.

 

Precision Drive Train
Equipped with a precision stepper motor, matched gears and an exclusive zero backlash tensioner .


COMPLETE 2 year warranty
Our 2 year warranty covers all parts, labor and technical support.

 


Advanced Measurement Calculator
Perform detailed and complex math functions.

The USB Platform Control unit is a highly accurate Microprocessor based stepper controller. Movement signals are sent from the measurement PC to the controller unit where precision stepping sequences are generated.

We also offer a development kit enabling you to write your own software to control the platform.

 

The Parallel Port Platform Control unit (discontinued) controls the positioning of the Horizontal and Vertical movements based on signals received from the Computer’s Parallel Port.

We also offer a Platform development kit which will allow you to adapt the DAMS Platform to your own software using a special DLL library.

The new Diamond Engineering Full Spherical Mount is now a DAMS platform option that may be added to any DAMS platform. The mount utilizes delrin for ball bearings and structure, plus it enables full spherical measurements to resolutions as low as 0.1 degrees. The mount is ideal for unobstructed gain data and efficiency. The belt driven system is a plug and play substitution to the DAMS elevation motor.

Features include:

Low reflection - 90% delrin construction
 

DC - 18 GHz  or DC - 40 GHz


6-inch horizontal adjustment for centring
 

12-inch vertical height


0.1 degree movement resolution


5-pound load capacity (option 5)


10-pound load capacity (option 10)


CTIA and general efficiency software


Runs from existing platform elevation plug
