eEDM sensitive searches form a probe into the Standard Model of particle physics and its extensions. A BaF supersonic beam with a velocity of around 600 m/s, moving in a controlled 10 kV/cm electric field and nT magnetic field, forms an experimental setup for eEDM sensitive searches. The emphasis lies on characterizing and controlling the electric and magnetic fields. Not only of interest are these fields themselves, but in particular (the use of) the sensitivity of the BaF quantum system in such fields. This provides multiple handles on statistical and systematic effects, critical in EDM searches. With this we aim to complete a first measurement step with the supersonic BaF beam in the coming year at a sensitivity level 10^-28 ecm.
