MA24106A: USB Power Sensor

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.

Request Information

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. The data display, acquisition occurs in the PC or Anritsu handheld instrument. The USB sensor comes standard with application software (PowerXpert™) for use with PC that mimics the user interface of a power meter.
