Using Calibration to Optimize Performance in Crucial Measurements
AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation’s model FL7018 (3 MHz – 18 GHz / 1 – 1000 V/m) is the newest addition to the company’s Starprobe® family of advanced laser-powered e-field probes. The probe’s noise reduction and temperature compensation capabilities allow accurate measurement down to 1 V/m. When rotated about its magic angle mount, it provides isotropic response of +/-1.5 dB to 8 GHz.
Each of the three Starprobes® has an internal microprocessor that enables it to “think” for itself and adapt to its environment. This provides optimal linearization, temperature compensation, control, and communications functions. And because they’re laser-powered, users never need to recharge or replace batteries.
In addition to the new Model FL7018, the other Starprobe® models include:
• Model FL7030 (5 kHz – 30 MHz / 1.5 – 300 V/m) • Model FL7006 (100 kHz – 6 GHz / 0.5 – 800 V/m). Designed to meet new IEC 6 GHz requirement.
The Starprobe® laser probes are just part of the world’s most complete line of high technology EMC field monitoring equipment. AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation offers six battery-powered, rechargeable E&H field probes that cover the range from 100 kHz – 60 GHz, 0.4 – 1,000 V/m, 0.012 – 17 A/m.
In addition, AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation also offers the FM7004 field monitor and the VM7000 Virtual Field Monitor. The FM7004 field monitor automatically configures itself to work with any of the AR laser powered or battery powered probes and can be controlled from either the front panel or remotely through IEEE 488.2, USB 2.0 or RS-232 interfaces. The VM7000 virtual field monitor provides a graphical user interface that allows control of all probe function and displays probe data and status. It simultaneously controls and operates up to 4 probes and runs under Windows NT, 2000 or XP operating systems.
