1.1 Documentation
The following documents are included in this Manual:
• A questionnaire to be sent to NARDA together with the apparatus
should service be required.
• A checklist of the Accessories included in the shipment.
This Manual includes the description of the Accessories of the system for
the measurement of electromagnetic fields.
1.2 Introduction
This section explains the installation and use of the EHP-50C Electric and
Magnetic Field Analyzer. EHP-50C is a low frequency electric and
magnetic isotropic field probe-analyzer, providing an advanced technology
solution for field measurements from a few V/m (or nT) to thousands V/m
(or mT), in the 5 Hz to 100 kHz range including X, Y and Z axes
measurements with a powerful spectrum analyzer built in.
EHP-50C can be used connected with 8053-DISPLAY, SB04 and PC.
EHP-50C has an additional mode of operation that allows it to be used in
stand alone mode over 24 hours of continuous data collection.
EHP-50C include an E2PROM, that stores the calibration data, the
frequency and level calibration tables, and an internal optical repeater that
allows the connection to external devices.
The spectral analysis of the signals, obtained through a powerful DSP
(Digital Signal Processor), is performed on seven different Span values
and is displayed on the PC monitor or 8053-Display . By using a Marker it
is possible to obtain the precise measurement of the frequencies and
levels.
EHP-50C is managed internally with a microprocessor (CPU module) that
controls all its main functions, from the charging of the batteries to the
serial communication with the DSP unit. The Electric or Magnetic field is
picked up by the three sensors on the X, Y and Z axes. A Digital/Analog
conversion follows which transforms the signal into numeric information
processed by a Digital Signal Processing unit.

1.6.1 Typical uncertainty
of EHP50C
The uncertainties stated in this document have been determined according
to EA-4/2 [4].
They were estimated as expanded uncertainty obtained multiplying the
standard by the coverage factor k=2, corresponding to a confidence level of
about 95%.
The total uncertainty of the probe derived from typical contributions of
linearity, anisotropy, frequency response, temperature, relative humidity and
with/without contribution of uncertainty of calibration.

General Information
1.6.2 Explication Notes
a) If we have the certificate with different values of the uncertainty of
calibration, in order to calculate the total expanded uncertainty UT , the
uncertainty of calibration has to be taken into account::
UT =
(U EHP 50 C )2 + (U Cal )2
b) When the environmental temperature is higher than 23 °C the contribute
due to the temperature must be added quadratically to the uncertainty.
Example: if the temperature is 38°C we get a variation of 15°C in
comparison to 23°C, corresponding to a variation of 0.15 dB ( 0.01dB/°C)
equivalent to 1,74% and therefore the standard uncertainty is 1%
(=0,0174/ 3 ).
Assuming an expanded uncertainty UT =4.2%,

U TOT =

A similar calculation can be made in case the relative humidity overcomes
50%.

1) The IEEE 1309-2005 [3] defined the anisotropy (A) as the maximum
deviation from the geometric mean of the maximum response and minimum
response when the probe is rotated around the ortho-axis (e.g. "virtual
handle") as shown in the example in figure below.

⎠
equation (1)
where S is the measured amplitude in field strength units.
2) The IEC 61786 [2] "Measurement of low-frequency magnetic and electric
fields with regards to exposure of human beings - special requirements for
instruments and guidance for measurements" don't define the anisotropy
and suggest, for three-axis probes, the calibration of each axis when each
element is aligned with the incident field.
The calibration should also be checked for a specific orientation where
approximately there is the same indication for each one of the three axis
(XYZ measurement).
Following this suggestion some laboratories find the minimum and the
maximum values of the X,Y,Z and XYZ measure and calculate the
anisotropy using equation (1).
3) We calculated the anisotropy with equation (1) but with 3D mesh
measurements to cover 4π steradian.
Fig. 1-2 3D mesh measurements of magnetic probe
Each x marker in the fig.1 indicates the coordinates surface of the spherical
coordinates (r, θ, ϕ).
The anisotropy is evaluated with 30 degree steps for θ and ϕ , and r shows
the calibration factor at each position.
The typical value of anisotropy is 1,4% (0.12 dB) for magnetic probe and
6,5% (0,54 dB) for electric probe.
The anisotropy calculated in this way is worse respect to other cases above
described and it is more representative of the reality.

2.4 To return for repair
When the meter needs to be returned to NARDA for repair, please
complete the questionnaire appended to this User’s Manual, filling in all the
data that will be useful for the service you have requested.
For reducing the period of time required for the repairs, it is necessary to
be as specific as possible in describing the problem. If the problem only
occurs in certain circumstances, please describe in detail how it happens.
If possible it is better to reuse the original packaging; making sure that the
apparatus is wrapped in thick paper or plastic.
Otherwise, use strong packaging by using a sufficient quantity of shock
absorbent material around all sides of the meter to ensure that it is
compact and does not move around inside the package.
In particular, take every precaution to protect the front panels.
Finish the package by sealing it up tightly.
Apply a FRAGILE label to the package to encourage greater care in its
handling.

2.6 Power supply and
battery recharging
EHP-50C has an internal rechargeable NiMH battery that can be
recharged with the battery charger supplied with it. (the battery charger is
the same as that of 8053 DISPLAY).
If the internal batteries are to have the greatest autonomy, we recommend
that a full recharging cycle should be carried out before using the Analyzer.
ALWAYS connect the battery charger to the power supply BEFORE
connecting it to the EHP-50C.
The battery charger has an internal protective circuit that will limit the
output of current if there is any load when connecting to the mains.
Always remove the shorting loop connector when recharging EHP50C.
Battery charger:
output: DC, 10 - 15 V, ~ 500 mA
-
+
Connector:
In order to safeguard the features of the batteries, it is crucial to have
a complete recharge before storing them for periods longer than 4
months. Therefore, it is warmly suggested recharging the batteries at
least every 4 months even though the device has not been used.
The minimum voltage level for operation is about 5.3 V. The batteries
must be recharged for lower voltages. Below such voltage the
analyzer will turn OFF automatically.
The time required for recharging the batteries is about 4-5 hours.
When the recharge is complete, this is indicated by the Led of the
EHP-50C, with a rapidly blinking Green light.
To take measurements ALWAYS remove the battery charger from the
EHP-50C Analyzer otherwise the system does not work.
The battery status is reported by the EHP-50 control program
When charging is in progress the operator is warned in the battery subwindow.

2.10 Battery
management
EHP-50C has efficient battery management that allows measurements to
be taken in Logger mode (when connected to 8053-Display accessory)
with over one week’s autonomy.
During the time the Data Logger - Low Power is being used, the Analyzer
stays on for the minimum period necessary (Time ON) and correctly takes
a measurement and transfers it to the internal non volatile memory of the
8053 DISPLAY, after which it goes into a state of low consumption until the
next measuring point. The delay between measurements may be set
between a minimum of 10 seconds and a maximum of 900 seconds (15
minutes).
The Table below illustrates the autonomy of the batteries with
measurement settings every minute and every 5 minutes. The longer the
delay between one measurement and the next, the longer the battery
charge lasts.
The Table summaries the battery autonomy of the Analyzer depending on
its mode of operation.

To avoid disturbing the measurements in progress, the user or other
2.11 Avoiding
measurement errors persons or mobile vehicles should stay at least 5 meters away from the
Analyzers. We also recommend that the probe be set up a long way from
metal objects or masses.
To perform correct measurements, the tripod TR-02A to hold EHP50C is mandatory. Using an unsuitable support could influence the
measurements that have been taken and, therefore, determine
incorrect results. We recommend always using the isolated extension
support supplied with EHP-50C for supporting the Analyzer.
We also recommend that the TR-02A optional tripod be used for
positioning EHP-50C at the height set out in the reference standards
for the measurement in progress and that this configuration is always
maintained so that the measurements taken can be repeated.
The intensity of the measured field mainly depends on its voltage and
the geometry of the system under examination as well as the distance
between the conductors and the measurement points. In the vicinity
of cables, the reading of the field value may be very high and vary
with the location of the probe.
From the definition of the potential difference between to points:
r2
V
21
= − ∫ E dr
r1
It is evident that, keeping the potential difference constant as the
distance between the two points under examination decreases, the
intensity of the field necessarily increases.
For example: the intensity of the electric field between two armatures
of a parallel-plate capacitor situated at a distance of 0.1 m and having
a potential difference of 100 V is equal to:
E=
100V
= 1 KV
m
0,1m
It should be noted that a voltage of 100 V, in these conditions,
generates a field of 1000 V/m. It is, therefore, possible, in the vicinity
of 220 V conductors, that there may be a field, which is much higher
than 220 V/m.

with 8053-OC
In case USB/OC adapter is not available, the former optical/RS232 adapter
can be used to connect EHP-50 to PC.
With 8053-OC the program automatically establishes the connection on the
first RS232 port that is not in use at that time, in the following order: COM1,
COM2, COM3, etc.
The energy available on the DB9 connector of some PC model could
be not sufficient to guarantee a good link with 80 meter fibre.
The energy available on the DB9 connector of some PC model could
be not sufficient to guarantee a link with 8053-OC. In this case, it is
necessary to use 8053-OC-PS between the converter and PC. (for
more information see Accessories).
Whenever a port is tied up by a device (e.g. modem) which is not active or
turned off at that time, the program recognises it as free and will therefore
attempt to connect EHP-50C to that port. In this case, it is necessary to
“force” the next serial port by the following procedure:
• Click right the requested program icon and select “properties”.

6.1 Stand alone mode
description
Fig. 6-1 Shorting loop
EHP-50C has been designed to be used also in stand-alone mode. This
mode is useful because no external devices is connected to the analyzer
during measurements. Once the measurement parameters have been
programmed through a PC, the EHP-50C analyzer can start its acquisition
by storing the data over 24 hours in a stand-alone mode. It is necessary to
position it over the TR-02A tripod and to activate the start. After 24 hours it
will stop automatically and later it would be possible to download all data to
the PC by using the provided NARDA software. From PC it is possible to
select to measure the electric or magnetic field, to select the full scale, the
Highest or Wideband mode, the SPAN whished and the sampling rate of
one minute or 30 seconds.
Some typical applications are:
- Magnetic fields near high, medium and low voltage transformers
- Measurements in proximity of power line towers
- Safety measurement at worker’s site
- Measurements close to machines, air conditioning systems, home
appliances etc.
- Development of new products
To start the stand-alone acquisition it is necessary to follow this procedure:
- Turn OFF the EHP-50C
- Remove the fiber optic connected to PC
- Insert the small optical bridge connector into the fiber receptacle of
EHP-50C
- Position it on TR-02A tripod or use the small tripod supplied with
EHP-50C
- Turn ON the EHP-50C and you will see the led flashing red and
green for about one minute
- Go away from the analyzer in order to non influence the
measurement
- Wait 24 hours for the completion of the one day measurement
The led of EHP-50C will flash every second to inform that it is ON with red
light. After every minute (or 30 sec) the led will become green for the time
requested by the analyzer to perform one measurement. The time that the
led remain green will depend by the selected SPAN. Lower Span requires
longer measurement time.
The acquisition can be terminated earlier than 24 hours. Just turn off
the EHP-50C and run EHP50C application to download the data to the
PC.

corner of the STATUS box. The symbol of a small battery will be filled up
proportion to the status of the battery charge.
The battery charger will be automatically stopped when one of the
following occurs and a small connector will be displayed relating to a letter
indicating the end of the recharging cycle.
Display of the following letters means:
V – The voltage of the batteries has reached 1.45 V/element (7.25 total),
and therefore the recharging cycle is complete.
H – The recharging cycles has lasted for more than 4 hours.
T – The temperature of the batteries, compared to the temperature stored
after ten minutes recharging, has increased more than 10 °C, or the
temperature of the battery has reached 65 °C.
When the recharging cycle is finished, the 8053-Display is ready for use.
To avoid damage to the batteries, when the T symbol appears, the
recharging cycle is stopped automatically.
