Abstract

Disclosed is an antenna/cable fixture used for EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) measurements. This fixture consists of a cable fixture, a antenna fixture and a connection plate. A cable fixture is placed near a connector of an antenna. And a cable fixture and a antenna fixture are connected by a connection plate. When a position of an antenna is varied on the present antenna positioning tower, as the excess length of the cable must be strained backward by a tester person to avoid the cross talk between the antenna and the cable, the part of the connection between the antenna and the cable is also strained and damaged. However, as the disclosed fixture fixes the cable near the part of the connection between the antenna and the cable, the damage to the part of the connection can be avoided.

Supporting Fixture of Cable which is Attached to Antenna

      Disclosed is an antenna/cable fixture used for EMI
(Electromagnetic Interference) measurements.  This fixture consists
of a cable fixture, a antenna fixture and a connection plate.  A
cable fixture is placed near a connector of an antenna.  And a cable
fixture and a antenna fixture are connected by a connection plate.
When a position of an antenna is varied on the present antenna
positioning tower, as the excess length of the cable must be strained
backward by a tester person to avoid the cross talk between the
antenna and the cable, the part of the connection between the antenna
and the cable is also strained and damaged.  However, as the
disclosed fixture fixes the cable near the part of the connection
between the antenna and the cable, the damage to the part of the
connection can be avoided.

      Fig. 1 shows the example of the fixture.  This fixture consists
of the cable fixture (1), the antenna fixture (2) and the connection
plate (3).  Fig. 2 is the present EMCO* antenna positioning tower.
The cable fixture (6) is independent of the antenna fixture (7).
When the excess length of the cable is strained by a tester person as
shown in Fig. 2(8) to avoid the cross talk between the antenna and
the cable, the part of the connection (9) between the antenna and the
cable is damaged.  Fig. 3 is the antenna positioning tower which has
the fixture of Fig. 1 and the ring (10) for supporting the cable
