    STE2300

     

 

As isolated RF testing evolved into more applications, so did the size, design, and style of the enclosures. The STE2200 was designed as the little brother and smallest STE available for small wireless devices. As wireless LAN devices became smaller, it made sense to step-up the STE2200 to a slightly larger design that also utilized our standard universal I/O interface panel. This not only allowed the testing of larger devices, but gave the user the same I/O capacity of our largest enclosures.

Size wise, we increased the width to 9 inches, the height to 5 inches and the depth to 12 inches. This together with the extended I/O capacity gives the user all the benefits of the larger enclosures while keeping closely within size of his DUTs. And that’s a cost savings. In addition to the standard universal I/O panel we also designed in the option for cross ventilation to cool the DUT. For the first time these advanced features became available in a small hand-held test chamber!

The STE2300 is constructed to the same precision-machined tolerances as our larger enclosures to maintain an exceptionally well shielded environment. The universal I/O panel is constructed of heavy duty milled 304 stainless steel to assure stability even when well populated with I/O connectors and feedthroughs. Heavy duty, .090 and .125 aluminum is used throughout and our double lip, high performance RF gaskets are used at all joint locations assuring a reliable RF tight closure. Oversized hinges and latches are used to provide a physically tight seal every time. In addition, steady-hold hinges keep the access door at any fixed position making repetitive production testing easier. RF absorbent foam lines the interior to provide a typical RF attenuation of -90dB @ 3GHz makes the STE2300 an ideal cross-over chamber for smaller devices that do not require a larger area or hands-on manipulation.
