EM Eye - ESD Event Meter
Installation, Operation and Maintenance
November 2018
Description
The SCS EM Eye Meter is capable of providing
measurements for many various parameters, which
are determined by the type of sensor connected to the
EM Eye Meter. Below are the three sensors that are
available now:
ESD Events Detection – The portable, easy-to-use
EM Eye Meter serves as a measuring instrument for
most ESD signals. The EM Eye Meter measures
the magnitude of ESD events. This meter also
estimates the events’ magnitude for CDM, HBM and
MM models.
Electromagnetic Field Measurement – Enables
the EM Eye Meter to be transformed into an EMF
Meter, Power Density Meter and EIRP Meter.
RF Signal Sensor – The EM Eye Meter measures
the amplitude of an RF signal.
User Features
Modular Construction
The EM Eye Meter with the modular construction
concept can expand to different applications. With the
current design, it measures the magnitude of most ESD
events when in one of its filter modes, electromagnetic
fields (EMF), power density, effective isotropic ally
radiated power and radio frequency (RF).
Made in the
United States of America

USER GUIDE TB-9023
Touch Screen to Power ON
The EM Eye Meter is designed with a modern user
interface. All buttons and controls are within the display
itself. With its display and touch screen, it is easier for
users to quickly navigate through the features that were
built into the meter.
Speaker and Headphone Alarm Outputs
The EM Eye Meter, with a speaker and headphones,
allows flexible means for audible indications, beeping
or “warbling” like a radio. If one is in a noisy place, a
headphone jack for optional headphones can be used
for clearer audio.
Easy Data Logging to Memory Card
The EM Eye Meter supports data logging by using a
microSD card and exports to an Excel spreadsheet.
Having data at hand enables quick analysis. Solutions
can be decided quickly and can be measured on the
spot.

replacing the heads.
Attaching the Sensor Heads
Keep in mind the following when using the modular
sensor heads.
BEFORE CONNECTING TO AN INPUT SOURCE,
TOUCH THE OUTSIDE SURFACE OF THE EM EYE
METER INPUT CONNECTOR. THIS WILL HELP
PREVENT ESD SHOCK TO THE METER.
1. The power must be turned off when changing the
sensor heads.
2. Make sure to gently plug or unplug EM Eye Meter
and the sensor heads.
3. Plug or unplug the sensor heads by firmly gripping
them. Then fit the sensor over the EM Eye unit. Do
not grab the antenna for plugging and unplugging
the sensor heads.
4. If the antenna is separated from the sensor head,
reattach it when the sensor head is securely in
place.
Attaching the Antenna
In order to avoid damaging the EM Eye Meter,
installation and replacement of the antenna must be
done with great care. An excessive amount of force
or improper installation may permanently damage the
meter.
Attach the antenna to the input connector by simply
screwing it in by hand.
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE CONNECTION. Screw
in the antenna firmly but gently. Do not use any tools
other than your hand to attach and detach the antenna.

Power Supply and Charger
Use only the power supply that comes with the EM Eye
Meter. Do not use any other power supply as it may
damage the meter.
Battery Care - Charging for the first time
To improve the battery life we recommend that you
make three fully charge-discharge cycles. For example:
fully charge the meter for two hours or overnight,
then use the meter until it is fully discharged (do not
recharge it at half-charge-life). Repeat this step two
times. It would normally take two hours to fully charge
the battery, but since the meter power is on while
charging; it would extend the charge time to four hours.
Succeeding charging would be at any duration. Use only
the supplied charger.
Power On
Using your finger, press and hold any spot on the
screen for approximately three seconds – do not use
any tools to perform this action. If a new sensor was
installed, a sequence of initialization will take place
for the first time for approximately ten seconds. After
that, the switch-on action will take approximately three
seconds. The main display screen appears after the
initialization and a beep will sound. The EM Eye Meter
will then perform a battery check. If the battery is too
low to provide reliable operation, it will not turn on. The
screen will go white momentarily and then the meter will
power up. After the initial power up, the meter will go
directly to the main screen.

ESD Event Detection Sensor
The SCS EM Eye Meter will help you detect most ESD
events. This will help you make sound decisions in
tackling what may have been a daunting task. The EM
Eye Meter detects the magnitude of events and using
the filters built into the unit. It can provide approximate
values for some ESD Events for models (CDM, MM,
HBM) using proprietary algorithms. Switching between
any of the modes will give you immediate data analysis.
Solving ESD problems requires data; a before-and-after
analysis of data may now be measured and used to
tailor ESD control programs.
CDM Mode MM Mode
In IC testing, ICs that are
sliding through tubes may
be charged up. Once the
lead touches the metal
tracks, a CDM event can
occur.
A moving, ungrounded
cart may accumulate
charges in its path. As
it approaches a metallic
worktable and bumps
into it, a discharge may
occur and may adversely
affect nearby products or
instruments
In feeder bowls where the
ICs are arranged for sort-
ing or orientation, voltages
may be induced by the
vibrating bowl.
In using a bad soldering
iron, induced voltages
may cause discharges to
the components mounted
into the PCB. Use ground-
ed tools and confirm that
no ESD events will be
detected by using the MM
mode.
HBM Mode Raw Input Mode
In IC testing, operators
that are handling an IC
(i.e. fixing bent leads) may
be discharging through
the IC.
For engineers who want
to simply analyze raw
ESD signals for further
analysis, the Raw Input
mode provides actual
voltages received by an
antenna.
During picking up of an IC
by a person not properly
wearing a wrist strap, use
the EM Eye Meter to
alarm the operator of such
events.

EM Field / Power Density / EIRP
Sensor
The SCS EM Eye Meter is a handy tool for the detection
and analysis of some electromagnetic fields.
Figure 8. Displays for EM Field, Power Density and
EIRP
EM Field Sensor
This sensor provides several important functions:
For the EMC engineer, it helps with diagnostics of
electromagnetic emission from the product and for
troubleshooting a problem.
For the manufacturing engineer, it assists in
identifying sources of harmful electromagnetic
interference in production that causes equipment
lock-up, sensitive component damage and other
problems.
For those who install and maintain antennae of radio
transmitters and mobile phones, the EM Eye Meter
can provide readings of the field strength, including
peak and average values. Further, proprietary
algorithm allows the EM Eye Meter to measure EIRP
of some emission sources.
For those who are concerned with EMI and RF
safety, the EM Eye Meter provides measurements of
power density.
RF Signal Detection Tool
The EM Eye Meter is a handy tool for the RF
communications design engineer. Used in the
laboratory, this tool measures signals from RF emitting
devices.

EIRP Units
By pressing the distance area, the distance for EIRP
measurements can be configured from 0.25 to 20
meters.
Memory and Current Reference
These references are used for convenience. The
“memory” reference is the value which is stored in the
memory all of the time and saved when the device is
powered off or when the main battery is removed. The
“current” reference is the average value of the measured
signal (background noise shown in PEAK value) which
was detected by the unit, when you entered into the
reference menu. If you enable this reference, it works
the same way as the memory reference. When you
disable it and switch back to the main menu, this value
is lost. Current reference is useful to detect signals with
the level higher than background noise.

Bar Graph/Reference Display and Button
When the bar graph area is pressed, the THRESHOLD
mode is entered and the reference level for EMF
measurement can be set.
With the NAVIGATOR bar:
Press the left or right arrows to adjust EMF references.
Press the up or down arrows to move the field cursor.
Press the center button to return to the main screen.
Reference options:
1. Memory Reference
2. Current Reference
To choose between Memory or Current reference, press
“V” (enable) or “X” (disable) at the right side of display.
Reference mode is helpful if you wish to hear an audio
alarm whenever EMF exceeds a certain level. If any of
the reference modes are enabled, you should see the
REF label shown on the main screen. The bottom line
of the display will now show the reference value of the
peak signal. Note: The top line shows the “difference”
(not the PEAK as labeled) between the ACTUAL PEAK
measured and the REFERENCE setting. Therefore,
whenever the “actual peak” value of the EMF signal is
higher than the reference, the difference is a positive
number and an alarm is issued. In the example display
shown, the difference is 0.105 V/m, the reference is
0.010 V/m, therefore the actual peak is 0.115 V/m.
Adjust the reference settings by pressing the
THRESHOLD and NAVIGATOR button.
When data is being recorded, the actual peak value
above the reference setting will still be recorded.
Data Storage and Read (EM Field Sensor)
The RECORD button (“R”) writes the displayed readings

RF Signal Sensor Display and
Controls
Menu Function
When the MENU F button is pressed momentarily, the
INTERVAL and AVERAGE data recording timing can be
configured.
INTERVAL, in seconds, is the sampling time for PEAK
data to be recorded onto the microSD storage card.
AVERAGE, in seconds, is the sampling time for
AVERAGE data to be recorded onto the microSD
storage card.
When the MENU F button is pressed for a longer period,
the hardware setup is shown. At this point, brightness,
off-time and attenuation can be adjusted.
Attenuation (ATT): If the input to the antenna is big
enough, set the attenuation from 0 to 20dB.
When the attenuation is set to 20dB, an additional
label of “20dB” is placed along with the “RF Signal” top
heading.

Reference mode is helpful if you wish to hear an audio
alarm whenever the RF exceeds a certain level.
If any of the reference modes are enabled, you should
see the REF label shown back in the main screen.
The bottom line of the display will show the reference
value of the peak signal. Note: The top line shows
the “difference” (not the PEAK as labeled) between
the ACTUAL PEAK measured and the REFERENCE
setting. Therefore, whenever the “actual peak” value of
the RF signal is higher than the reference, the difference
is a positive number and an alarm is activated. In the
example display shown, the difference is 1.453mV, the
reference is 0.700 mV, therefore the actual RF signal
peak is 2.153 mV.
Adjust the reference settings by pressing the
THRESHOLD and NAVIGATOR buttons.
When data is being recorded, the actual peak value
above the reference setting is recorded, not the
“difference” value.
Data Storage and Read (RF Signal)
The RECORD button (“R”) writes the displayed readings
and settings onto the microSD storage card; press the
“R” button to activate RECORD. At this point, the button
turns red and data is being written onto the storage
card. To stop recording, press the red button again.
Data from the microSD card can be exported using utility
software described in the data software section.
