MUNICH – Rohde & Schwarz in Munich is introducing the NRP67S and R&S NRP67SN power sensors for fast power test and measurement with accuracy and dynamic range previously not possible at frequencies as high as 67 GHz.
The three-path diode power sensors enable power measurements with a high-sensitivity, portable instrument of minimum size and weight for wireless infrastructure power measurements.
This frequency extension makes high speed power measurements possible for additional applications such as IEEE 802.11ay and 802.11ad WiGig Wireless LAN, millimeter-wave terrestrial short distance communications links, and satellite-to-satellite links operating at 60 GHz.
The NRP67S and R&S NRP67SN power sensors introduce a frequency range of 50 MHz to 67 GHz to achieve a dynamic range from -70 dBm to 20 dBm, and a high measurement speed of 10,000 measurements per second.
The power sensors are suitable for WiFi and wireless HD systems that operate above 57 GHz, and many other wireless communications as a near-universal tool for wireless infrastructure power measurements.
These power sensors are for local and remote installation, maintenance, or monitoring applications. The NRPxxSN includes an Ethernet interface to support remote operation via LAN.
The devices support the industry standard USBTMC protocol, making integration into test systems easy. For more information contact Rohde & Schwarz online at www.rohde-schwarz.com.
