The FL8018 from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is an Electric Field Probe that operates from 20 MHz to 18 GHz. This probe has been specifically designed for EMC radiated immunity testing in the automotive, wireless, military and aviation industry. It is an electrically small, separable axis sensor capable of measuring both continuous wave and pulsed electric fields.
The field probe is laser powered (over-fiber), allowing continuous operation without recharging or replacing batteries. Additionally, this provides excellent RF isolation for the control system. It has a dynamic range of more than 54 dB with a resolution of less than 0.1 dB and a field strength range from 2 to 1000 V/m. The FL8018 has a temperature stability of ±0.5 dB and a linearity error of ±0.5 dB.
The field probe kit contains everything that is required to operate the Field Probe. Remote control and laser power for the Field Probe is provided by the laser probe Interface. A set of 20-meter fiber-optic extension cables and fiber-optic mating adapter are also provided with the kit. It has IEEE-488 (GPIB), Ethernet, USB 2.0, RS-232 and fiber-optic serial PC interfaces.
An ortho-angle mount and adapter foot are provided for ease of mounting in common orientations. When rotated about its ortho-angle mount, the probes provide excellent isotropic response. The FL8018 is available in a chassis that measures 50.4 x 11.6 x 30.5 cm and requires an AC supply from 90 to 260 V at 50-60 Hz.
