Designed for use as a clamp injection device for conducted immunity tests in the frequency range of 150 kHz to 230 MHz
Com-Power Corporation, a manufacturer of EMC test equipment located in California, USA has recently introduced an Electromagnetic Clamp (also known as EM Clamp) to complement their existing IEC- 61000-4-6 conducted immunity test equipment. The CLEM-6146 EM Clamp is designed for use as a clamp injection device for conducted immunity tests in the frequency range of 150 kHz to 230 MHz. The clamp can also be used for tests over an extended frequency range of 10 kHz to 1 GHz.
The cable connection between the Equipment Under Test (EUT) port to be tested and its Auxiliary Equipment (AE) is placed into the EM Clamp. The EM Clamp provides a means by which RF energy is coupled onto the cable and decoupled from the AE path so that the energy is directed toward the EUT.
The CLEM-6146 incorporates split-core ferrites, which allow the top half of the hinged enclosure to open so that the cable under test can easily be laid into position. Once closed, rotating the two knobs on the front of the clamp (one-quarter turn) engages the locking mechanism that compresses the top and bottom halves of the ferrites together around the cable.
