Kapteos offers a wide range of products and accessories.
The central part of the system is the eoSense converter which leads the accessories. The system measures electric fields based on electro-optic probes (Pockels effect).
This high-end converter provides the most advanced features even within very harsh environment like few MV/m, ultra bandwidth from 40 Hz to 100+ GHz.
This portfolio is regularly updated with either improvements or new functions.
Comprehensive electric field measurement system
The picture below presents the up to date available products and accessories.
The minimum required system to perform an electric field measurement is to have the eoProbe sensor connected to the optoelectronic converter called eoSense.
The items names are as follows:
- eoSense: opto-electronic converter (from 1 to 3 channels)
- eoProbe: optic probe (1 probe measures 1 axis of an electric field)
- eoSwitch: optical switch to select a probe among several ones
- eolink: optical extension lead
- eoCal: electric field applicator to calibrate a probe
- eoPod: holder to maintain up to 3 probes
eoSense converter to operate the full system
This opto-electronic converter must be used with the eoProbe sensors, a dedicated Kapteos software or using dedicated instructions sent from your own software via the Ethernet port. It operates up to 3 eoProbe directly connected. It converts in real-time (100% analog conversion) the optical signal transmitted by the eoProbe into an electrical signal that can be analysed with an instrument like an oscilloscope, a spectrum analyser or any other signal processing instrument.
It includes an antenna factor (AF) real-time treatment for measuring absolute electric fields (modulus, phase).
Each eoSense is delivered with a Routine Test Report valid for 2 years.
eoProbe to measure the electric field
It measures one component of the electric field vector based on the electro-optic technology. This Ultra-Wide Band sensor allows accurate measurements in almost any location and environment (air, liquids, gases, vacuum) under harsh conditions.
Each eoProbe is delivered with a Routine Test Report valid for 2 years.
This probe must be used with the eoSense converter.
