Description of the AM1D probe

      The AM1D Audio Magnetic Field Probe is a fully shielded magnetic field probe for the frequency
      range from 100 Hz to 20 kHz. The pickup coil is compliant with the dimensional requirements of
      [1+2]. The probe includes a symmetric low noise amplifier for the signal available at the shielded
      3 pin connector at the side. Power is supplied via the same connector (phantom power supply)
      and monitored via the LED near the connector. The 7 pin connector at the end of the probe does
      not carry any signals, but determines the angle of the sensor when mounted on the DAE. The
      probe supports mechanical detection of the surface.
      The single sensor in the probe is arranged in a tilt angle allowing measurement of 3 orthogonal
      field components when rotating the probe by 120° around its axis. It is aligned with the
      perpendicular component of the field, if the probe axis is tilted nominally 35.3° above the
      measurement plane, using the connector rotation and sensor angle stated below.
      The probe is fully RF shielded when operated with the matching signal cable (shielded) and
      allows measurement of audio magnetic fields in the close vicinity of RF emitting wireless devices
      according to [1+2] without additional shielding.

Handling of the item

      The probe is manufactured from stainless steel. In order to maintain the performance and
      calibration of the probe, it must not be opened. The probe is designed for operation in air and
      shall not be exposed to humidity or liquids. For proper operation of the surface detection and
      emergency stop functions in a DASY system, the probe must be operated with the special probe
      cup provided (larger diameter).

Methods Applied and Interpretation of Parameters

«_    Coordinate System: The AM1D probe is mounted in the DASY system for operation with a HAC
      Test Arch phantom with AMCC Helmholtz calibration coil according to [3], with the tip pointing to
      "southwest" orientation.
«_    Functional Test: The functional test preceding calibration includes test of
      Noise level
      RF immunity (1kHz AM modulated signal). The shield of the probe cable must be well connected.
      Frequency response verification from 100 Hz to 10 kHz.
«     Connector Rotation: The connector at the end of the probe does not carry any signals and is used
      for fixation to the DAE only. The probe is operated in the center of the AMCC Helmholtz coil using a
      1 kHz magnetic field signal. Its angle is determined from the two minima at nominally +120° and —
      120° rotation, so the sensor in the tip of the probe is aligned to the vertical plane in z—direction,
      corresponding to the field maximum in the AMCC Helmholtz calibration coil.
a     Sensor Angle: The sensor tilting in the vertical plane from the ideal vertical direction is determined
      from the two minima at nominally +120° and —120°. DASY system uses this angle to align the
      sensor for radial measurements to the x and y axis in the horizontal plane.
Sensitivity: With the probe sensor aligned to the z—field in the AMCC, the output of the probe is
        compared to the magnetic field in the AMCC at 1 kHz. The field in the AMCC Helmholtz coil is
        given by the geometry and the current through the coil, which is monitored on the precision
        shunt resistor of the coil.

Calibration data

Connector rotation angle       (in DASY system)       348.7°               +/— 3.6 ° (k=2)

Sensor angle                   (in DASY system)       =0.11 °              +/— 0.5 ° (k=2)

 The reported uncertainty of measurement is stated as the standard uncertainty of measurement
 multiplied by the coverage factor k=2, which for a normal distribution corresponds to a coverage
 probability of approximately 95%.
