MUNICH, 17 March 2015. Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co KG in Munich is introducing the R&S NRPxxS and R&S NRPxxSN USB and LAN diode sensors for fast and accurate power test & measurement.

The three-path diode power sensors offer measurement speed and measurement accuracy, even at low levels. The R&S NRPxxSN model offers a USB and a LAN interface. Both power sensor models are available for frequency ranges of 10 MHz to 8 GHz and 18 to 33 GHz.

The R&S NRPxxS/SN sensors enable 10,000 triggered measurements per second with a minimum trigger resolution of 100 microseconds. A special mode even permits in excess of 50 000 equidistant measurements per second.

The LAN interface on the R&S NRPxxSN model allows remote power measurements over large distances. For example, it is possible to control monitoring applications for satellite systems or particle accelerators via a central PC by placing sensors at various positions in the system. The power sensor is controlled from a GUI accessed via web browser. No additional software is needed.
