Measure RF Power up to 120GHz in frequency for multiple applications. Used for measuring continuous wave (CW) or pulsed waveforms in terms of peak power or average power, this is useful for testing, manufacturing, R&D, maintenance and more. Typical uses for these RF power meters and sensors is to measure the output of amplifiers during radiated immunity testing. Main specifications to take into consideration when selecting a power sensors are the frequency range and power range.
Two technologies are used to perform RF power measurements: Diode sensors and Thermocouple sensors. Thermal sensors offer true average measurements at almost instant response times and have a linear response to the input power. Diode sensors are more capable in terms of making more kinds of measurements. They can measure power of modulated signals as well as peak power and more, with quick response time.
