The JRE TVK Isolation Tester can help verify the proper shielding isolation of RF enclosure test set-ups. This test combination, consisting of the STA-1, a sensitive handheld spectrum analyzer, and the HPSS-1, a high power 2.45-GHz test signal source, can easily and quickly measure enclosure isolation down to less than -100 dB. The TVK Isolation Tester is simple to use since it is completely adjustment free, which eliminates erroneous readings or complex spectrum analyzer adjustment.
The HPSS-1 RF signal source, enclosed in a compact, rugged extruded aluminum case, is designed to be placed inside the sealed test enclosure being investigated. The HPSS-1 produces a high-power 250-500-mW 2.45-GHz signal which is necessary for sensitive leak detection. A high-capacity internal Li-Ion battery allows stand-alone operation, eliminating the need for an external power supply or the need to feed power into the test enclosure. In this way the enclosure isolation barrier is unimpeded and uncompromised. The STA-1 handheld spectrum analyzer is factory-configured to a center frequency of 2.45 GHz, with a span of 2 MHz and a dynamic range on-screen of 115 dB. With the directional antenna provided, it is a simple task to search for any signal leakage problems, such as leaky gaskets, seams, or loose screws.
