Overview

The ML2437A Power Meter combines the advantages of thermal meter accuracy, diode meter speed, and peak power meter display graphics. The result is a single instrument that samples at more than 35K per second and achieves 90 dB dynamic range with a single sensor. This meter includes graphics display capability as a standard feature. The ruggedized housing and optional high-capacity NiMH battery bring laboratory quality accuracy to field service applications. ML2437A has one input.

  • Speed, accuracy and flexibility in a low-cost package
  • Portable, rugged, and splash resistant.
  • Optional NiMH battery, providing six hours continuous operation
  • Measure and transfer a high speed burst of 200 data points using profile operating mode with sampling rates of 35k per second.
  • With 99.9% emulation of older meters, the ML2430A series improves ATE system productivity. Typical test system speed improvement is 2 to 10 times faster system speed.
Specifications
  • 90 dB dynamic range
    Typical communications industry ATE systems operate over a 60 to 80 dB dynamic range. The MA247xD Series' 90 dB dynamic range replaces two 50 dB sensors.
  • High reliability/Field Ready
    Rugged poly-carbonate chassis design handles rough field treatment and is splash resistant.
  • Improved accuracy
    The MA24xx Series Power Sensors offer a typical 5 to 6 dB improvement in sensor return loss, typically cutting mismatch uncertainty in half.
  • Softkey menu control
    Softkey menus simplify instrument control by making the user interface easier to understand. The numerical keypad simplifies the operator interface.
  • Battery
    The optional NiMH “Smart” battery supports high charge density for a typical 8 hour day of operation.
  • Voltmeter
    The ML2430A Series also supports high speed voltage measurement. A rear panel BNC measures voltage or operates as V/GHz input supporting automated sensor calibration factor correction.


Ideal for CW or Field Applications

  • Speed Accuracy and Flexibility in a low cost package
  • Portable, Rugged, andS plash Resistant.
  • Optional NiMH battery, providing six hours continouas operation

GPIB speed and emulation
  • Measure and transfer a high speed burst of 200 data points using profile operating mode with sampling rates of 35k per second.
  • With 99.9% emulation of older meters, the ML2430A series improves ATE system productivity. Typical test system speed improvement is 2 to 10 times faster system speed.

Data acquisition event arming and triggering functions
  • Triggering delay and the sample integration time per reading can be directly controlled by the operator.
  • Trigger sources include, continuous, internal, external TTL, and manual.
Burst profile graphics display
  • Random repetitive sampling for high resolution of fast signals. A time domain graphic display profiles pulsed signals over a power range of –40 dBm to +20 dBm.
  • 35 kHz sampling speed produces clear power profiles of cellular and PCS signals including TDMA, PHS, GSM, and DCS-1800. Pulse-top power is easily and repeatably measured using between cursor averaging.
  • Measure pulse-top power over >80 dB dynamic range in readout mode at GPIB speeds >200 readings per second.

Power vs. Time graphics display
  • Pulsed Power or TDMA signals available. The power versus time mode is a strip chart style display.
  • In service applications, power versus time mode speeds trouble shooting of unusual conditions such as intermittent switches or abnormal power control in a mobile telephone.
  • Frame Triggering allows the user to measure the average power accross a time slot.
