Universal Power Sensors (Average) MA248xD Series

Wideband Power Sensors (Peak and Average)

MA249xA Series

The Anritsu MA249XA wideband power sensors are designed for use with the ML2480 and ML2490 series power meters. These sensors provide peak, crest factor, average power, rise time, fall time, maximum power, minimum power and statistical data of wideband signals.

  • Ideal for measuring Radar and Communication signals like WiMax, WCDMA, WLAN, GSM etc.
  • CW and Average power measurements as low as -60 dBm
  • 20 MHz video bandwidth
  • Sampling rate of 64 MS/s with ML2480 and ML2490 series power meters
