Statistical Power Sensor: 7022

Statistical Power Sensor: 7022

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.

Power Meter + Power Sensor

Power Meter + Power Sensor

The Giga-tronics 8651B Single-Input Power Meter and 8652B Dual-Input Power Meter offer high-performance RF and Microwave power measurement. The Giga-tronics 8650B Series Universal Power Meters have the extensive measurement capabilities and features you need to test today’s sophisticated systems faster, easier and more accurately.
Terminating Power Sensor: 5011, 5011-EF, 5015, 5015-EF

Terminating Power Sensor: 5011, 5011-EF, 5015, 5015-EF

The Bird Terminating Power Sensor (TPS) is the easiest to use and most cost competitive terminating sensor on the market. This one port measurement device will provide True Average Power for forward power or reflected power if attached to a directional coupler or total power in the line if connected to a non-directional coupler.
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.

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.

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.
Wideband Power Sensor Series (WPS)

Wideband Power Sensor Series (WPS)

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.

Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24218A)

Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24218A)

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.
