  6. Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24105A)

    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.

  7. Digital Power Sensors
    The Bird Directional Power Sensor (DPS) is the most flexible RF sensor on the market today. With this Dual-Socket,Thruline® sensor, you may select from a wide range of Bird Elements to tailor the unit to your needs over a wide range of frequencies and power levels. Also, select field changeable input and output RF connectors from dozens of types including [N, BNC, HN, 7/16 DIN].
  8. Wideband Power Sensor Series (WPS)

    Bird’s® Wideband Power Sensor Series (WPS) never requires field calibration, only requires calibration once per year and are traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The WPS measures True Average Power, Peak Power, and Duty Cycle directly with exceptional accuracy and uses these precise measurements to calculate a wide range of other important factors, such as VSWR, Return Loss, Reflection Coefficient, Crest Factor, Average Burst Power, and CCDF.

  9. Directional Power Sensor: 5010B, 5014
    The Bird Directional Power Sensor (DPS) is the most flexible RF sensor on the market today. With this Dual-Socket, Thruline® sensor, you may select from a wide range of Bird Elements to tailor the unit to your needs over a wide range of frequencies and power levels.
  10. Statistical Power Sensor: 7022

    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.
