GT-8500A Series USB Power Sensor GT-8500A Series USB Power Sensor
The Giga-tronics GT-8550A USB Power Sensors offer easy-to-use high-performance RF and microwave power measurement. High dynamic range and high accuracy make these sensors ideal for testing in wireless communication applications and Defense EW systems.
Directional Power Sensor: 5010B, 5014 Directional Power Sensor: 5010B, 5014
The Bird Directional Power Sensor (DPS) is the most flexible RF sensor on the market today. With this Dual-Socket, Thruline® sensor, you may select from a wide range of Bird Elements to tailor the unit to your needs over a wide range of frequencies and power levels.
Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24106A) Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24106A)

The MA24106A power sensor is a USB power sensor that eliminates the need of a traditional power meter. It is designed to provide accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz to 6 GHz over 60 dB of dynamic range. It is a highly accurate, standalone instrument that communicates with a PC via USB or with many of the Anritsu handheld products (often requiring Option 19). The power measurement capability of MA24106A is intended to mimic that of a traditional thermal (thermo-electric) power sensor by providing true-RMS measurements, although the MA24106A offers a wider measurement range. Therefore, it is ideal for measuring average power of CW, modulated RF waveforms such as 3G, 4G, OFDM, and multi-tone signals. True RMS power measurements enable one to make accurate measurements regardless of the input signal type.

USB Power Sensor Family USB Power Sensor Family

Anritsu USB power sensors eliminate the need for a traditional power meter. These highly accurate, standalone instruments communicate with a PC via USB or with most of the Anritsu handheld instruments (often requiring Option 19). The sensors measure true RMS power, so they are ideal for measuring CW, modulated RF waveforms (e.g. 3G, 4G and OFDM signals) and multi-tone signals. They are ruggedized for field use with an industry-leading +33 dBm damage level.

Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24208A) Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24208A)

The MA24208A is a power sensor designed with “triple path” architecture that provides True-RMS measurements for CW, multi-tone, and digitally modulated signals from 10 MHz to 8 GHz over 80 dB of dynamic range. The sensor employs high-performance digital processing which enables measurement speeds of >1,600 continuous power readings/s continuous and >11,000 buffered readings/s. It is intended to be used to increase throughput and reduce cost-of-test in any lab, high-volume manufacturing and field environment.

Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24118A) Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24118A)

The MA24118A power sensor is designed to provide accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz to 18 GHz over 60 dB of dynamic range. The sensor employs a "dual path" architecture that provides (similar to thermal sensor) True-RMS measurements over the entire frequency and dynamic range, enabling users to make highly accurate average power measurements for CW, multi-tone, and digitally modulated signal up to 18 GHz. The sensors have internal and external triggering capability that facilitates individual slot power measurements of TDMA waveforms as well as burst power measurements of periodic and non-periodic waveforms.
