Cedar Park, Texas, July 30, 2007 – ETS-Lindgren's booth at the 2007 IEEE International Symposium on EMC in Honolulu, Hawaii had a steady stream of visitors during the three-day exhibition. Why? It may have been the interesting probe and time domain demonstrations conducted by ETS-Lindgren's Dave Seabury and Dr. Michael Foegelle that lured engineers to the booth to learn more about what they had seen.
Dave Seabury, ETS-Lindgren's Senior Product Manager, EME Measurement Devices, presented a demonstration of RF Electric Field Probes and Their Use in EN61000-4-3 Radiated Immunity Testing. Featuring the LaserPro 6153, a single broadband probe solution for making E-field measurements between 10 MHz and 40 GHz, engineers were impressed by its broadband frequency response and dynamic range of 2.0 – 800 V/m (1200 V/m optional). No wonder engineers lined up to visit with Dave for further information on the probe in ETS-Lindgren's booth. Benoit Nadeau, Conformity Group Manager at Matrox in Montreal, and an auditor for A2LA, dropped by and commented, "This probe is incredible. The laser power source is great for taking field readings over an extended time period without worrying about the power source. It can be a disaster on site during a test or calibrating the field and having a probe battery go dead. Labs don't have to worry about that possibility with the LaserPro 6153."
Dr. Foegelle, ETS-Lindgren's Director of Technology Development, gave a demonstration on Introduction to Time Domain Measurements. He addressed the increasingly popular use of time domain transforms for site evaluation. Using a vector network analyzer connected to a horn antenna, attendees learned how time domain testing could be used as an effective diagnostic tool to identify sources of reflections. "I wanted to share general tips and tricks for using time domain measurements to get engineers off to a good start with this type of measurement. I also showed the time domain response of various objects to evaluate and determine their reflectivity. Overall, the idea was to educate engineers so they can go back to their test lab and use something practical they learned at EMC 2007," said Dr. Foegelle.
