Microwave Trainer

This Microwave Trainer is designed to study and test lines and antennas used to broadcast information in microwave field

Possible to analyse and test the following major aspects related to microwaves and to their application in communication systems.

  • Microwave generation with Gunn oscillator
  • Waveguide Components and Antennas for microwaves
  • Assembling and Measurements

This unit consists of a main Trainer and of a set of optional waveguide Components (WG).

Training Program:

General microwave theory

  • Characteristics of:
    • Microwave components
    • Waveguide and flange
    • Horn antennas and parabolic reflector
    • Reflection and polarization system
