PS-05 A Simple and Effective Method for Cable Shielding Measurement using Electric Field Probe

The proper shielding of coaxial cables and connectors is an important parameter for electromagnetic compatibility of electro-electronic devices. The detection of eventual electromagnetic leaks as soon as possible is vital in order to perform the necessary corrections and also avoid unanticipated costs. Within this context, this digest presents a simplified proposal of the voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) measurement and the electric field radiated by a coaxial cable and connectors. A virtual model has been created based upon the physical coaxial cable RG- 58 with a good correlation between simulation and measurement.
