UPDATE to DM LOSS MEASEREMENT


David Eckhardt 2021/01/30 17:30

An addition at the beginning and a few minor 'fixes'. Going to sleep last
night I kept mulling over changes I wanted to make. See attachment.

add a fourth row of values .. measure the common mode attenuation not
only the trough loss!!

how to do that?? ... say you have a coax choke ... then connect the
shields to the hot ends of your test jig ...

if you have a two wire (twisted pair) then connect only ONE of the two
to your test jig (does not matter if the "white" or "black" wire used
cause they should be identical)

see drawing (just a rough sketch to give you the idea)

for trough loss you connect both wires on input and output of your balun

for common mode surpression only connect ONE on input and output
(normally shield used if you have a coax choke)

It seems that you missed a week or so of messages.

no ... i read them all for sure ...

a good choke not only has good match on input and output and low trough
loss ... a good choke also has a high isolation (common mode
surpression)  ... and i miss them in the table

The man is redoing the measurements that he did on his HP VNA ...

Siegfried:

That is coming. The procedure is a bit different, although the beginning
is identical. I have built a fixture to accommodate shields being
connected, but only the windings are measured as you point out. I just ran
out of steam, yesterday.
