Inline High Power Sensor (Average)

This product has been discontinued Replacement Model(s) : MA24105A

The MA24104A Inline High Power sensor is designed to provide accurate average power measurements from 600 MHz to 4 GHz for power levels as low as 2 mW to as high as 150 W. The sensor employs a single directional coupler at the front end of a diode sensor with "dual path" architecture that provides (similar to thermal sensor) True-RMS measurements over the entire frequency and dynamic range enabling users to make highly accurate average power measurements for both CW, multi-tone and digitally modulated signals such as GSM/EDGE, CDMA/EV-DO,WCDMA/HSDPA, WiMAX, and TD-SCDMA. The presence of a micro-controller along with signal conditioning circuitry, ADC, and power supply in the sensor makes it a complete miniature power meter.

The Anritsu Power Meter application for personal computers running Microsoft Windows™ can be used to control and operate the sensor.

For the products that support USB, the sensor easily connects to the instrument via a USB A/mini-B cable. These supported USB instruments include the MS272xB, MT8222A, MS202xA, MS203xA, and MS271xB instruments.

In contrast, the instruments with an RS-232 serial interface require an external DC supply in addition to the RS-232 serial cable. These RS-232 instruments include the Site Master (S331D/S332D), Spectrum Master (MS2711D) and Cell Master (MT8212B) products.

The High Accuracy Power Meter (Option 19) is a software option that enables the desired instrument to interface with the power sensor.
