LSProbe – Laser Powered E‑Field Probes

The minia­tu­ri­zed LSPro­be E‑Field Pro­bes ensu­re unat­ten­ded, unin­ter­rupt­ed mea­su­re­ments com­bi­ned with high reso­lu­ti­on, high speed and low noi­se over the enti­re test period.

With the gal­va­ni­cal­ly insu­la­ted power sup­p­ly, the need for bat­te­ries is now eli­mi­na­ted. The field pro­bes do not only mea­su­re avera­ge values but the time cour­se of fields. With an unpre­ce­den­ted wide dyna­mic ran­ge and fast pul­se respon­se, LSPro­be pro­vi­des the user com­ple­te­ly new mea­su­ring options.

LSPro­be allows for a hig­her effi­ci­en­cy through fas­ter, shorter and lower-cost test­ing inter­vals.
Two dif­fe­rent types are available:
