Field Probe Positioner (PP-02)

Field Probe Positioner (PP-02)

The TDK PP-02 Field Probe Positioner permits remote x-y positioning in EMC test environments. The PP-02 supports field uniformity schemes as well as flexible grid definitions for a variety of test requirements.

The TDK RF Solutions PP-02 Field Probe Positioner is an x-y axis probe positioner for remote positioning applications. The positioner is controlled with the TDK RF Solutions SI-300 system interface, which reduces test interruptions by allowing test engineers to remotely position field probes during EMC/RF test procedures without opening the chamber door. With optional TDK TestLabTM software, the probe can also be positioned automatically.

IEC 1000-4-3 Compliant
The PP-02 can be used as part of an automated field leveling and uniformity scheme over a defined vertical plane, satisfying IEC 1000-4-3 field uniformity measurement requirements.

During field uniformity measurements, remote positioning of the probe eliminates 32 manual position changes (16 horizontal, 16 vertical) reducing test times up to 20%; for test facilities that use two antennas to cover the frequency, the PP-02 eliminates 64 manual position changes.

No E-Field Interference
The PP-02 is non-obtrusive to the test environment because of its DC battery supply, fiber optic transmission system, and non-conductive construction. This allows accurate measurements to be made without electric field interference from the positioner.
