EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) probes are used to monitor high power, radiated fields or to pinpoint susceptible areas in the device under test (DUT).
RF field strength probes and meters are used together to detect the qualities of the electric field a device or system is emitting and can monitor a specific broadband or frequency range. Field strength monitors are receiving tools that can perform signal analysis during frequency interference and EMC testing. Field probes are typically composed of a dipole antenna, a non-perturbing line of transmission, and an RF detector.
Near field probes use frequency-specific, E-field and H-field probes accompanied with an electromagnetic interference (EMI) analyzer to detect electromagnetic emissions and locate vulnerabilities in the DUT. Both of these probes are used together to reveal the source of EMI.
Avalon Test Equipment carries a variety of EMC probes from top manufacturers (Amplifier Research, Narda, Com-Power, and more)to meet specific testing requirements.
Consists of three loop probes, one stub and one ball probe, an extension handle, an optional battery-powered preamplifier, and a foam-lined carrying case with a manual and application note. The handle of each probe terminates in a BNC connector. Probes are designed to be used with a signal analyzing device such as an oscilloscope or spectrum analyzer. The optional preamplifier is useful when signal amplification is necessary for the analyzing device.
