Calibration Details:  

– Keep unit calibrated. We recommend calibration once a year in our UK NPL traceable EMC Test Lab.

All calibration tests are performed in EMC Test Design, LLC test lab and are based on transferable field measuring probes and antennas traceable to United Kingdom National Physical Laboratory (UK NPL).

 Probe PI-03

1) Meter/Probe Linearity 0.5-800 V/m @100 MHz/72.5 MHz,

2) Probe Frequency Correction Factors at 24-30 specified frequencies in the frequency range 3 MHz-18 GHz.

3) Probe Rotational Isotropicity @ 100 and 1900 MHz (@10 V/m)..

– To convert the electric field strength E (V/m) into power density S (uW/cm2) use formula: S=E2/3.77. To calculate the value of the magnetic field H (far field region) use the relationship: E/H=377 Ohm.
