How can an EMC maintenance and troubleshooting kit be used?

1. Finding radiated emission sources on PCBs (printed circuit boards)

2. Finding leaky seams in various enclosures

3. Measuring cable common-mode currents and radiation

4. Doing fast “A-B” comparisons for proposed design changes

5. Detemining immunity to radiated and ESD (electrostatic discharge)

6. Very portable ... might be used as a mini “EMC crash cart”
