Near Field Probe Set basics,applications,Vendors

This page describes Near Field Probe Set basics. It mentions applications of Near Field Probe. It also mentions Near Field Probe vendors or manufacturers.

Near field probe is used for magnetic field measurement as well as electric field measurement. Based on this fact, there are two main types of near field probe viz. H-probe and E-probe.

All the probes are usually coated with insulation layer. Hence they are used for safe measurement near main lines and of oscillator devices. The figure depicts complete set of near field probes manufactured by Aaronia AG, Germany.
