IEC 62209-3 Validation

Validation Antennas for IEC 62209-3 (AVALSET-3V1)


AVALSET-3V1 is the set of antennas and accessories defined by IEC 62209-3 to validate the performance of any vector measurement-based system (e.g., array system). The manufacturers of these systems are obliged to validate the system if it is used for certification. AVALSET-3V1 also empowers regulators and users to independently verify the manufacturer-stated specifications. Validation warranties consistent results, independent of the device being measured.


Validation of the performance of any vector measurement-based system and verification of the uncertainty budget.

Components Antennas:
  • 11 Dipole antennas
  • 4 Vertical Planar Inverted-F Antennas (VPIFAs)
  • 1 Dual-peak Centrally-Fed Planar Inverted-F Antenna (2peak CPIFA)
  • VDSV1 - Verification Dipole Stand for cSAR3D Flat / Quad
  • VAHV1 - Verification Antenna Holder for cSAR3D V1
  • Spring-loaded antenna holder
  • Mounting block for VPIFAs
  • Set of Validation Masks for Flat Phantom, Left Head Phantom and Right Head Phantom
  • Verification Dipole Spacers (5 mm, 10 mm, 15 mm, 25 mm)

Each antenna comes with an ISO/IEC 17025 calibration certificate. Reference SAR values are provided in the calibration certificate for each location and distance for any phantom type: Flat (MSL, HSL), Left Head, Right Head.
