Anritsu Company Expands Inline Sensor Family

Anritsu Company introduces its inline power sensor MA24103A, designed to measure accurate Peak and True-RMS average power measurements from 25 MHz to 1 GHz and two mW to 150 W power range.  

Several applications demand accurate peak and average power measurements well below the frequency range of 1 GHz. Agencies in public safety, avionics (air traffic control and repair stations), and railroads must maintain critical communications between the control centers and the vehicles. The slightest error in making measurements or maintaining a communication network in these markets can risk public safety or even have fatal consequences.  

Lower frequencies have the advantage of propagating a longer distance and maintaining communication with fast-moving vehicles. Normally, at lower frequencies, the power of the transmitting signal is in the range of watts, which makes the MA24103A more suited for these types of applications.

This highly accurate inline peak power sensor communicates with a PC via USB or an Anritsu handheld instrument equipped with the high accuracy power meter option 19.
