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.
These speed sensor heads feature low harmonic emission, low flick noise, high sensitivity, CW and pulse mode operation, FCC part 15 compliance, and more. They’re available with various different antenna types, making them versatile for various applications.
The MA24218A 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 18 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.
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.
SAGE Millimeter’s SSD series of ranging sensor heads are ideal for applications involving traffic monitoring, true ranging radar, automatic production lines, and automotive radar systems.
A signal’s average power isn’t a sufficient enough control variable for modern day communications. It’s still an important parameter, but today’s signals typically require more diagnostic measurements. Bird’s 7022 is a statistical power sensor that uses statistical sampling techniques to measure the percentage of time the signal exists at a specific peak-to-average ratio.
