The probes require an FI7000 interface for power and communications; FM7004 is recommended for local monitoring and control. Both the FL7040 and FL7060 communicate through glass fiber-optic cables up to 100 meters long to the FI7000 interface. X, Y, Z, and isotropic readings can be returned through an FI7000 in 20 ms.
The Model FL7040 (2 MHz to 40 GHz) and Model FL7060 (2 MHz to 60 GHz) Laser-Powered E-Field Probes contain an internal microprocessor to provide linearization, temperature compensation, control, and communications functions. Noise reduction and temperature compensation allow measurements down to 2 V/m without zero adjustment. Microprocessor-based linearization technology provides a 54-dB dynamic range. When rotated about its angle mount, the probes offer a typical isotropic response of ±1.5 dB to 60 GHz.
