Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24108A)

The MA24108A power sensor is designed to provide accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz to 8 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 8 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.

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 USB sensor comes standard with application software (PowerXpert™) for use with PC that mimics the user interface of a power meter.

Features:

  • Broad frequency range (10 MHz to 8 GHz)
  • True RMS measurements
  • NIST Traceable calibrations
  • Compatible with Anritsu handhelds
  • Built-in internal and external trigger (only used with PC)
  • High power handling (33 dBm)
  • 1 mW calibration need eliminated
  • Worldwide calibration and service centers
