The Huntron Access RF system provides reliable and repeatable near field measurements of RF signals. The system integrates a Huntron Access 2 Prober, Keysight spectrum analyzer and Langer RF near field probes under the control of Huntron Workstation. This combination delivers an automated method to place a “sniffer probe” precisely where it is needed.
In a typical application, single point measurements in RF circuits are dependent on the manual dexterity and interpretation of the operator. The position of the RF probes must be duplicated to achieve repeatable measurements. The Huntron Access RF eliminates errors in probe placement and the need for documentation that identifies the physical location of the probe points. When measuring points on your circuit board assembly (CCA), the Huntron Access RF will provide a minimum 10:1 improvement in probing time over manual methods.
Testing with the Access RF system requires the CCA under test to be powered and in a functional state so measurements can be taken. The end user provides the PC, power supplies and control hardware based on their knowledge of the CCA and the measurements that need to be captured. The size of the Access RF provides plenty of space to allow for cabling and connections to be made to the CCA. The Prober has a base plate cover that can be removed to allow for easy access to the probing area from below.
The Access RF is a diagnostic tool and is not intended for EMC/EMI pre-compliance testing.
