Consequences of Non-Isotropic Behavior of E-Field Probes

The ongoing discussion about the measurement accuracy of Electric Field Probes during EMC immunity tests continues to be an important discussion topic. The probe is after all the only absolute reference instrument on which the complete test is based and this is more than enough reason for the engineers of DARE!! Products to start a research project on this subject. The initial results of these tests are, to say the least, surprising.
