Absorbing Clamp 10mm

Model CLA-050

30 - 1000 MHz


10 mm Absorbing Clamp

The CLA-050 Absorbing Clamp is designed as per CISPR 16-1-3: “Radio disturbance and immunity measuring apparatus – Ancillary equipment – Disturbance power” to measure disturbance power on power input lines as well as other auxiliary I/O lines. The measurement of disturbance power is a method for determination of radiated disturbance, and an alternative to the measurement of disturbance field strength on an Open Area Test Site (OATS) or Semi-Anechoic Chamber (SAC). Absorbing clamp measurement method (ACMM) is described in Clause 7 of CISPR 16-2-2. Testing with Absorbing clamp is simplified compared to traditional methods of measuring radiated disturbances. It does not require a anechoic/ semi-anechoic chamber or a calibrated site. The use of an absorbing clamp for disturbance power measurements is required for certain types of devices per CISPR 13 [EN 55013], CISPR 32 [EN 55032] and CISPR 14 [EN 55014]. It can also be used to measure screening attenuation of RF coaxial cables.
