The FL8200 from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation is an advanced Laser-Powered Electric Field Probe and Associated Kit that operates from 5 kHz to 200 MHz. It has been designed specifically for EMC radiated immunity test applications. Each field probe is an electrically small, separable axis sensor capable of measuring both continuous wave and pulsed electric fields. It has a field strength of 0.3 – 500 V/m and a dynamic range of more than 64 dB.
The filed probe kit contains everything needed to operate its associated field probe. Remote control and laser power for the Field Probe is provided by the FI8000 laser probe interface. A set of 20 m fiber-optic extension cables and fiber-optic mating adapter are also provided with the kit. The use of a laser to deliver power-over-fiber (PoF) allows for continuous operation without recharging or replacing batteries. Additionally, this provides excellent RF isolation for the control system. An ortho-angle mount and adapter foot are provided for ease of mounting in common orientations.
Correction factors from an accredited ISO 17025 calibration lab are provided with each Field Probe. These factors can be loaded into a model FM7004A Field Monitor (sold separately) to automatically correct the probe readings at user-specified frequencies. The FL8200 is available in a module that measures 42.3 x 52.4 x 52.4 mm and is ideal for automotive/commercial/aviation/military EMC and wireless R&D applications.
