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.
The 7022 offers three modes:
Time Domain Mode:
This mode provides a detailed breakdown of single or multiple pulses. It includes a wide range of IEEE pulse parameters, and its markers help the operator focus on particular portions of the signal being analyzed.
This mode offers analytical results of Signals of Interest using CCDF parameters. It allows its users to isolate and identify specific breakpoints with the use of markers.
Average Power Mode:
The average power mode gives accurate, true average power measurements, True Average measurements of Forward and Reflected power, peak power measurement, pulse power burst measurement, and all related reflection calculations.
Bird’s 7022 statistical power sensor is ideal for the following applications:
