EMC Scanner

<Kirchhoffs >


Visual Noise Detection

The patented EMC-scanner measures the emission from PCB’s,  components, cables and products. The system consists of an X-Y-Z robot, a spectrum analyzer with near field probe and a standard PC with custom software and a GPIB card or similar for communicating with the spectrum analyzer. During measurement the near field probe is moved by the robot to a grid of measuring points above the test object. At each measuring point the location of the probe and the value of the emission intensity is stored in the computer. After the measurement the results can be documented in different types of reports.


Objective comparative measurements

One of the most useful features of the EMC Scanner system is that it enables you to make truly objective comparative measurements.

To the left, you can see an example of comparative measurements. The six measurements show the same test object and the same frequency. The difference is the value of the de-coupling capacitor of one IC.


High Resolution Heat Scanning

The scanner system also includes a Heat-Scanner feature.Heat scanner is a high-resolution measuring system for anyone wishing to measure temperature accurately and inexpensively. The measurements are presented graphically as either two or three-dimensional images.
