Anritsu Introduces True-RMS USB Power Sensor

Said to be accurate, fast, and rugged enough for field applications, the MA24106A, USB-powered sensor measures true-RMS power, regardless of the input signal or bandwidth, over a dynamic range of 63 dB from 50 MHz to 6 GHz. Suitable for measuring average power of CW, multi-tone, and modulated RF waveforms, the MA24106A provides a more cost-effective alternative to benchtop power meters as it communicates to a PC via its USB interface. Additionally, there is no need for a reference calibrator typically required by power meters, minimizing test station complexity and sensor handling while reducing test times. The standards used to calibrate the instrument are directly traceable to NIST. Other features include a typical accuracy of ±0.13 dB, power-handling capability of +33 dBm, 3.3 kV of ESD protection, and a current consumption of 100 mA. Starting price for the MA24106A is $2,400.
