HI-6053 Electric Field Probe

The battery-powered HI-6053 Electric Field Probe provides broadband frequency coverage and wide dynamic range that satisfies the demands of most test requirements. To take advantage of this capability, the HI-6053 was designed to be single range reading so data can be read continuously over the entire dynamic range. Data values for each axis (X, Y, and Z) can be read individually or summed.
