Table 3 Continuous-mode data from the EFD system

From: Wire Probe Antenna (WPT) and Electric Field Detector (EFD) of Plasma Wave Experiment (PWE) aboard the Arase satellite: specifications and initial evaluation results

Data Rate (bps)
Electric field: waveform 64 Hz × 16 bit x 2 ch (u and v) [Apoapsis mode] or 256 Hz × 16 bit × 2 ch (u and v) [Periapsis mode] 2048 or 8192
Electric field: spectrum 1 Hz × 8 bit × 100 ch (1–224 Hz, v or u) 800
Potential 8 Hz × 8 bit × 4 ch (u1, u2, v1, v2) 256
Electric field: waveform 128 Hz × 16 bit × 2 ch (u and v) (when E-field waveform close to saturation) (+ 4096)
Total [Apoapsis] [Periapsis] (when E-field close to saturation) 3104 or 9248 (+ 4096)
