TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies Simplifies Discontinuous Disturbance Measurements with New Standard Capabilities in MXE EMI Receiver
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Agilent Technologies (News - Alert) Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced the addition of
disturbance analyzer capabilities as a standard feature of its N9038A
MXE EMI receiver. For those who need to make
discontinuous-disturbance, or click, measurements, the MXE simplifies
and automates data collection, analysis and report generation in
accordance with CISPR standards 14-1 (emissions) and 16-1-1 (measurement
apparatus and methods).
A wide range of commercial electronic devices, such as washing machines,
refrigerators and thermostats, generate discontinuous conducted
emissions. In the MXE, click measurements are made simply and quickly
using auto-coupled settings that link the chosen measurement frequencies
to the proper instrument configuration and relevant CISPR test limits.
Test duration can be set as desired, up to two hours. The user can also
configure the measurement to end after a specific number of clicks have
Clearly displayed results help test engineers easily characterize the
conducted-emissions performance of the device under test and evaluate it
against regulatory requirements. Intermediate results are displayed as
data is collected, enabling the user to track the measurement process.
Upon completion, final analysis is automatically generated, showing
pass/fail results, a list of all crucial parameters (e.g., click count,
click rate, etc.) and the status of any applied exemptions. Results can
be documened with standard or customized reports.
"With the addition of click measurements, the MXE continues to keep pace
with the regulatory requirements that define the demands on engineers
who perform EMC (News - Alert) testing," said Jim Curran, marketing manager of
Agilent's Microwave and Communications Division. "For these engineers,
success depends on tools that enable them to do more in less time, today
and tomorrow, which is our ongoing vision for the MXE."
N9038A MXE EMI Receiver
The MXE is a standards-compliant EMI receiver and diagnostic signal
analyzer built on an upgradeable platform. It meets commercial (CISPR
16-1-1:2010) and military requirements (MIL-STD-461).
To help users diagnose noncompliant signals, the MXE includes a variety
of built-in tools, such as diagnostic resolution bandwidths, a range of
detectors, multi-trace displays, marker functions, trace zoom, zone
span, spectrograms and Agilent-exclusive Strip Chart. To speed the
evaluation of signal details, the MXE enables seamless transitions
between its EMI receiver, monitor spectrum and spectrum analyzer modes.
To enhance instrument longevity, upgradeable options include CPU,
memory, disk drives and I/O ports.
