The Anritsu MA24105A Inline Peak Power Sensor is designed to take accurate average power measurements from 2 mW to 150 W and peak power measurements from 2 W to 300 W over the frequency range of 350 MHz to 4 GHz. The sensor employs a “dual path” architecture that enables True-RMS measurements over the entire frequency and dynamic range allowing users to measure CW, multi-tone and digitally modulated signals such as LTE, LTE-TDD, GSM/EDGE, CDMA, W-CDMA, WiMAX, TD-SCDMA, WLAN, and LTE. The forward direction path also include a 4 MHz bandwidth channel that has peak and comparator/integrator circuits that add measurement functions such as PEP power, crest factor, CCDF, and burst average power. Another detection circuit on the reverse direction adds reverse power measurement capabilities including reverse power, reflection coefficient (magnitude), return-loss, and SWR. The presence of a micro-controller along with signal conditioning circuitry, ADC, and power supply in the sensor makes it a complete miniature power meter.
Fast. Accurate. USB-capable. Power sensors from Rohde & Schwarz
The most important features for accurate and simple power measurements are maximum measurement accuracy and speed, and easy operation with a base unit or PC/laptop. The R&S®NRP family combines all these features with the R&S®NRP2 base unit, R&S®NRPV virtual power meter PC software and a wide range of USB-capable power sensors.
Ducommun’s line of millimeter-wave Doppler and ranging sensors are ideal for automotive radar and Doppler ranging radar applications. They features a compact size, low 1/f noise, high sensitivity, low harmonic and spurious emission, and a circular polarized waveform.
Rohde & Schwarz has designed two different two-path diode power sensor with excellent price/performace ratio and differing frequency ranges. With a dynamic range of 80 dB for measurement of CW and modulated signals and a maximum power of +20 dBm, these Power Sensors are very useful measurement instruments for a vast number of measurement tasks.
Bird’s® Wideband Power Sensor Series (WPS) never requires field calibration, only requires calibration once per year and are traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The WPS measures True Average Power, Peak Power, and Duty Cycle directly with exceptional accuracy and uses these precise measurements to calculate a wide range of other important factors, such as VSWR, Return Loss, Reflection Coefficient, Crest Factor, Average Burst Power, and CCDF.
The MA243X0A series Microwave CW USB Power Sensors employ a single-path diode architecture to provide fast, accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz up to 50 GHz with 90 dB of dynamic range.
