What is Magnetic Field?

A magnetic field is a vector field that describes the magnetic influence on moving electric charges, electric currents, and magnetic materials.

Magnetic Field Generators are used for magnetic field immunity tests according to IEC/EN 61000-4-8 and IEC 61000-4-9 standards.

The 1008 is a high current generator for testing power frequency magnetic field immunity according to the IEC/EN 61000-4-8 standard. 

The shape and size of the generated magnetic field are defined by the loop antenna in use; different loop antennas can be separately ordered as an option. 

All the tests required by the basic standard IEC/EN 61000-4-8 (full immersion, proximity, continuous, intermittent) can be easily controlled (test mode, level, timing) either by the built-in software, via the soft keys on the front panel of the equipment, or by integrating control with the laboratory’s own commercial or proprietary software. 

The loop antenna is supported by a wheeled double mast with a pair of specially designed swivels so the loop can be turned quickly and easily in the direction most convenient to the test engineer. 

Due to the weight of the heavy-duty components, the 1008 needs a robust and stable mechanical structure that provides repeatable grounding; the stand is combined with one of the two masts of the antenna and can be easily moved across the lab and on the test plane.
