Test Equipment Description

The Teseq CIP 9136 probe has been manufactured to drawings and specifications laid down by QinetiQ. It meets the requirements for HIRF testing where conventional ferrite core material cannot handle the higher powers required (up to 1000 W), without changing characteristics when heated. Whilst having been initially designed to meet the specific requirements of Aircraft Testing from 10 kHz to 50 MHz, the CIP 9136’s unique non-ferrite core allows wide band performance from 10 kHz - 400 MHz, and above.

The Teseq CIP 9136 core material is highly efficient and thermally rugged, thus allowing very high injected levels to be achieved with lower RF input powers. The core material can withstand far higher powers than conventional ferrite (up to 1000 W), which change characteristics in relation to the temperature.

The probe material meets the requirements of ISO 11452-4, RTCA/DO-160 section 20, MIL-STD-461 and other standards. The probe performance can be measured using Calibration Jig PCJ 9201.

The model CIP 9136A received a mechanical improvement, in difference to the original CIP 9136, for a better core positioning. This is mandatory in the low frequency range and it improves the insertion loss.
