FSM Field strength meter

FSM Field Strength Meter
Part code: TFSM01

The FSM Magnetic Field Strength Meter from Ampetronic is a cost effective and simple solution for measuring, setting up and commissioning an induction loop system to the requirements of IEC60118-4. The meter is an ergonomically designed hand held instrument for measuring loop system performance. There are three calibrated operational modes for the assessment of Background Noise, Field Strength and Frequency Response as required to ensure correct function of the loop system. The meter also doubles as a loop listener, with a headphone output to listen to the signal in the loop.

The meter is supplied in a soft case  and with  full operating instructions including a guide to commissioning. The Ampetronic FSM can be used to monitor, set up or commission any induction loop system regardless of the manufacturer or type.

Background Noise

To determine the level of the background magnetic field present in the intended location for the loop system. Also used to measure low level signals to assess overspill outside a loop system.

  • A-Weighted filter
  • True RMS detection referenced to 400mA/m
  • Scale -42 to -12dB
  • Audio (headphone) output is post filter for monitoring

Field Strength

A broad band measurement to measure field strength delivered by the system.

  • Broad band measurement 50Hz to 8kHz
  • True RMS detection referenced to 400 mA/m
  • Scale -22 to +8dB with 1dB intervals from -3 to +6dB
  • Suitable for use with sine wave, pink noise, or combination signals (provided), or any other real signals

Frequency Response

Third octave filters for measuring performance across the required frequency spectrum as required by IEC60118-4.
Used to confirm adequate power at high frequencies as required for good intelligibility. Used to assess frequency dependent loss due to metal structures, and to optimise frequency compensation.

  • Third octave bands at 100Hz, 1kHz and 5kHz
  • True RMS detection
  • Scale resolution to 1dB
  • For use with pink noise only (signal provided)
  • Audio (headphone) output is post filter
