Dielectric Test Fixtures
RF Expertise ▪ Indepth Understanding of Qualification Testing ▪ Dielectric Test Fixtures Built to Order
Dielectric test fixtures support antennas and radomes without affecting their radio frequency (RF) performance characteristics during a test. Rock West Composites designs and delivers dielectric test fixtures to meet a wide variety of dimensional and test specification requirements. Our fixtures are built using standard qualified materials, processes, and design methodologies. The image above is an example of a dielectric test fixtures that we have designed, manufactured and demonstrated to withstand the strength of gusting winds. This fixture, mounted on an outdoor RF test range, is supporting an antenna.
We design and build dielectric test fixtures to order. Our design process can include a complete structural analysis to ensure that appropriate factors of safety are maintained for the maximum loading conditions that could occur for both static and dynamic test environments. In the case of outdoor fixtures, design consideration and analysis is also given to transport load conditions and wind load conditions.
