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.
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.
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 (ex. 3G, 4G and OFDM signals) and multi-tone signals. They are ruggedized for field use with an industry-leading +33 dBm damage level.
