RF Power Sensor Device


Measures the power of continuous wave signals, ranging from single-tone and multitoned sources to wideband, complex digital waveforms.

RF Power Sensor Devices feature a wide dynamic range and high measurement accuracy packaged in a size similar to a typical power head. Models make true RMS power measurements and can also measure path loss in automated test applications. Calibration constants, including linearity and temperature corrections, are stored directly on the device. Some models can be hardware-triggered through an external trigger source or software-triggered based on the signal source. Scope and slot modes use this software triggering to measure burst waveforms, such as WiMAX and LTE, and multislot waveforms, such as GSM and EDGE. Models are ideally suited for mobile applications or for adding to automated test applications to free up valuable rack space without sacrificing performance.
