In an earlier study, the authors presented a calibration technique for a triaxial bipolar electrode array (EA) that used 72 data points collected during a global sweep of the electric field vector relative to the EA axes. Although necessary for the initial characterization of the EAs, this data requirement has to be significantly reduced for the technique to become a practical tool. Therefore, in the present study, an analysis is performed to determine the relation between the number of data points used in the calibration and the mean root-mean-square error. The analysis shows that 18 data points can produce results nearly identical to those obtained with the 72-point calibration, thus reducing the required amount of data fourfold.
