AR Worldwide RF/Microwave Instrumentation has redesigned one of its Starprobe laser-powered e-field probes to meet the new IEC 6 GHz requirement. The new Starprobe, Model FL7006 replaces Model FL7004, and is available from Faraday.
Like the Starprobe Model FL7030 (5 kHz – 30 MHz / 1.5 – 300 V/m), the FL7006 is designed and manufactured by AR Worldwide with an internal microprocessor that enables it to think for itself and adapt to its environment. This provides optimal linearisation, temperature compensation, control, and communications functions. And because it is laser-powered, users never need to recharge or replace batteries.
Noise reduction and temperature compensation allow the FL7006 probe to deliver accurate measurements down to 0.5 V/m without zero adjustment. Microprocessor based linearization technology provides a 64 dB dynamic range. When rotated about its magic angle mount, the probe provides isotropic response of +0.5 dB to over 2 GHz. The Starprobe laser probe Model FL7006 offers a flat frequency response of any e-field probe in its frequency range.
