Bulk Current Injection probes are designed to handle large currents in order to perform BCI conducted immunity tests in accordance with BS EN 61000-4-6, Mil.Std.462D and various Aeronautical and Automotive specifications. The BCI method is one of a number of methods used to evaluate the EM susceptibility of a wide range of electronic devices. These methods that simulates modulated CW currents developed in electrical wiring and circuitry of equipment or systems under test. The above probe includes a matching network, which is used for frequencies between 100kHz and 1MHz. It provides better matching, thereby reducing the reverse power going back into the amplifier.
For level setting during the calibration run, this probe is fitted into a calibration fixture (item 252). During the test run, the induced current can be measured using a monitor probe.
