EMProbe

Accurate and Repeatable High-Resolution EMC and EMI diagnostic with Hand held Near Field Probes on your on your lab-bench

Using Hand Held probes to identify and resolve EMC/EMI issue testing have never been this accurate and straight forward!

3D Precision Technology used to assist high density board designers to use off the shelf hand-held probes and visualise the root causes of potential EMC and EMI problems during pre and post EMC compliance testing.

EMProbe enables the PCB and Design Engineers to diagnose EMC/EMI problems using regular off the shelf hand-held probes. An easy to use Robotic Arm controls the movement of the probe to any direction and an external Spectrum Analyzer provides the results. The EMViewer software is used to control the Robotic Arm and the external Spectrum Analyser collects and analyse the results.

Different types of Robotic Arms can be used, based on the desired size and resolution.

SCANNER USERS

Testimonials

The instrument provides spatial and spectral scans that allow design teams to cut one to two design cycles out of their product development process. It also reduces their EMI testing time by up to two orders of magnitude.
The design team conducted the scans on the EMxpert system in their offices. In a matter of minutes, they obtained the results. Testing the design in a third party chamber would have have been weeks away
