FBM 1-4

FRANKONIA’s innovative range of positioning devices is entirely compatible with EMC chamber environments. In case a tilting antenna function in step-wise mode is required, the FRANKONIA boresight mast (FBM) is the right choice. FRANKONIA’s FBM offers an electrical tilt function from 0° to 50°, as well as an electrical vertical movement from 1 to 4 meters. The integrated pneumatic unit ensures the H/V polarization.

Overall, the FBM offers different operating modes:
- Vertical height scan, H/V polarization,no tilt mode (normal antenna direction)
- Vertical height scan, H/V polarization, tilt mode (Boresight) (step-wise or step-less)

The antenna mast construction is compliant with CISPR
16-1-4 and ANSI C63.4. The FBM has been designed for both tilting and no tilting functionality. Various antennas can be attached with suitable adapters (not included) to the antenna mast. The FBM carries up to 8 kg antennas incl. adapter using the tilt function, and up to 12 kg antennas incl. adapter using the normal operation without tilt. A functional safety is guaranteed in case the antenna incl. adapter does not exceed the maximum weight and is balanced with counterweights (2x 3 kg weights included) during setup.

Antenna Polarizing Unit

 

Model FPD-01

 

Antenna Polarization Unit 

 

Data

 

The polarization unit FPD-01 is designed for the polarization of antennas, and is a perfect complement to the antenna stand FSM 1.6 or FSM 2.0.

The polarization unit FPD-01 is adapted for antennas up to a weight of 5 kg, and has a slewing range from 0° to 90°. The FPD-01 polarization unit has an antenna tube of ř 22 mm, which is equipped with a clamp ring for easy and safe installation of antennas. On the side a
3/8” thread is provided for the installation of a stand. The control is effected by the controller FC06 which is equipped with an additional 24V output. The control signal is fed through the shielded wall via an EMC filter that is mounted on the carrying unit.

 

Features
• Electric polarization from 0° to 90°
• Polarization time of about 5 sec
• Polarization accuracy of 0.2°
• For antennas up to 5 kg
• Antenna tube of ř 22 mm ± 0.1


 

Manual Antenna Mast

 

 Model FSM-1.6 / FSM-2.0 / FSM-4.0

 

Manual Antenna Mast 

 

Data

 


The height level of the double telescopic antenna masts FSM-1.6 and FSM-2.0 can be manually adjusted
from 0.9 / 1.2 m to 1.6 / 2.0 m (depending on the model). The height setting is made within a few seconds.
In order to avoid unwanted reflections the mast rods are made of fibre glass. A collapsible tripod provides a
secure stand and easy adaption to uneven ground. The perpendicular mast adjustment is simplified with a
spirit level mounted at the tripod. A rotatable spider fixes the tripod legs for easy movement within seconds
by one person only. Antennas can be mounted directly on the 3/8” male thread or by the use of adapters for
double stacked antennas.

Description FSM-4.0
The main applications of FSM-4.0 are emission measurements, where frequent height scans are required. Level adjustment from 0.4 m to
4.15 m can easily be done by using the manual winch. The mast can be set up and disassembled without any tools within 2 minutes. The
FSM-4.0 tripod is suitable for both stationary and mobile applications. Thanks to its small transport dimensions it can be stored without problems
even in small cars. The antennas are mounted with their 22 mm tube directly to the support. The polarization is fixed with an indexing
ring for both, vertical and horizontal polarization without tools. There is no additional adapter needed to fix antennas with 22 mm tubes. Each
of the three spider legs can be adjusted individually for a coarse level adjustment on uneven or inclined mounting surfaces.

Controllers

The introduction of our new CO3000 controller combines more than 20 years of experience, with research and development, taking into consideration feedback from existing new and existing customers. The intuitive design provides a 7’’ TFT display, allowing easy and precise operation in manual, semi-automatic and remote control mode.

The controller supports Innco and Innco-systems positioning devices, which are controlled via fiber optic cables. The GPIB (IEEE) and LAN (TCP/IP) ports add additional control methods and for future upgrades.

Innco also offers a Hand Control Unit (HCU) for use with up to 3 devices. The connection of the HCU can be by either fiber optic or wire cable.
