Calibration of Electromagnetic Field Sensors and Probes (Excluding Antennas) from 9 kHz to 40 GHz
|Publication Date:||31 October 2013|
This standard includes calibration methods for electromagnetic field sensors and probes, excluding antennas per se, for the frequency range from 9 kHz to 40 GHz. The standard defines the characteristics, use and measurement uncertainties for electromagnetic field sensors and field probes. Areas described include: anisotropy effects, temperature effects, probe linearity effects, modulation effects, source and conductor proximity (near-field) effects, response in multi-frequency fields, partial- vs. full-immersion of probe/meter, non-purity and harmonic field effects caused by amplifiers. Specific instructions are provided for proper calibration of probes for different applications.
This standard provides consensus calibration methods for electromagnetic field sensors and probes. Calibration organizations and other users need uniform calibration methods to obtain consistent results. The calibration methods of this standard will produce results readily traceable to a national measurement institute.
