USB Microwave CW Power Sensors: MA243X0A Series

The MA243X0A series Microwave CW USB Power Sensors employ a single-path diode architecture to provide fast, accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz up to 50 GHz with 90 dB of dynamic range.

Features and Benefits:

  • Broad Frequency Range (10 MHz up to 50 GHz): Ideal for general purpose, aerospace and defense, satellite and wireless communications applications
    • MA24330A 10 MHz to 33GHZ
    • MA24340A 10 MHz to 40 GHz
    • MA24350A 10 MHz to 50 GHz
  • Accurate Power Measurements with over 90 dB Dynamic Range
  • Best-in-Class Damage Protection (+26 dBm CW, +32 dBm peak < 10 µs): Protects instrumentation investment
  • No Zeroing Required (for signals > –50 dBm) and Elimination of 1 mW Reference Calibration: Reduces test time and handling in production while maintaining absolute accuracy
  • Advanced Trigger Capabilities: Facilitates time dependent power measurements
  • NIST Traceable Calibration: Provides high-accuracy measurements and ensures absolute accuracy
  • Calibration Traceable to SI Units via National Metrology Institutes
  • Easy to Use with PC or Select Anritsu Handheld Instruments: No benchtop power meter unit needed
  • Silicone Protective Covering (removable): Provides additional field durability
  • External Trigger Latching: For pulses as narrow as 20 ns
Request Information

The MA243X0A series Microwave CW USB Power Sensors are designed to provide fast, accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz up to 50 GHz with over 90 dB of dynamic range. A unique, low noise design eliminates the need to zero the sensor before taking measurements for most applications. The sensors have internal and external triggering capability that facilitates time-based measurements and the use of list mode to speed up automated processes.

The sensor can be controlled with a PC via remote programming commands or with PowerXpert™, a free of charge software application. These sensors are also compatible with most Anritsu RF and microwave handheld instruments. The high accuracy power meter software option (e.g., Option 19) may be required. The excellent damage protection combined with the silicone protective covering give the sensor increased ruggedness and enable users to protect their investment.
