Detectus AB is a Swedish company that develops, manufactures and sells EMC test systems directly and through distributors worldwide. There are two lines of Detectus EMC Scanners, the RSE and the HRE Series.
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.
RSE Series EMC Scanners
The RSE-series is characterized by the 1 mm step size, the Heat scanning feature and it's large working area (up to 600 x 400 x 200 mm). The RSE-series come in three different sizes. With the recent closure of EMSCAN, let our engineers explain why Detectus EMC scanners are the right choice to make.
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.
HRE Series EMC Scanners
The High Resolution or HRE-series is characterized by 25 µm ( 0.025 mm) step size and the IC-option which contains a high resolution real time inspection camera and specially designed high resolution near field probes.
Calibrate to Beacon
The scanner tables of the HRE-series scanners are equipped with beacons for automatic and accurate probe calibration. Calibrating to the electric center point of probe helps you reproduce high quality measurement results every time.
