Introducing the AR RF/Microwave FL8000 Series of Electric Field Probes

The FL8000 series is an advanced line of laser-powered Electric Field Probes, and associated Kits 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. There are a total of five Field Probes available, each with a unique bandwidth, sensitivity, and dynamic range.

The filed probe kits contain 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-meter 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. When rotated about its ortho-angle mount, the probes provide excellent isotropic response. Attention was given to the mounting geometry and remote command set for the FL8000 series kits to allow seamless substitution with the legacy field probe kits.

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. When correction factors are applied, the true accuracy of the Field Probe can be realized.

The export classification for this equipment is EAR99. This equipment is controlled for export in accordance with the U.S. Export Administration Regulations. Diversion contrary to U.S. law is prohibited.
