This guide provides important notices, warranty, safety, and regulatory compliance information for the Anritsu Power Meters, Power Master™, USB Power Sensors, Thermal Sensors, and Diode Sensors. Be sure to
read these important notices before operating the equipment.
Overview of RF and Microwave instruments available to meet a variety of solutions. Featuring the frequency range, measurements, and other key features.
This manual provides set-up and operational information for the ML2487B / ML2488B and
ML2495A / ML2496A Peak Power Meters.
This manual provides an overview to the PowerMax software (MX249001A) for use with the
ML248xB and ML249xA power meters. No prior knowledge of PowerMax is assumed, although a
familiarity with the purpose and operation of the ML248xB and ML249xA models is required.
The ML2490A series has the performance required for narrow fast rising-edge pulse power measurements (e.g., radar), while the ML2480B series is suited for Wideband power measurements on signals such as W-CDMA, WLAN, and WiMAX. The ML2430A series of power meters are designed for CW applications, offering a combination of accuracy, speed and flexibility in a low cost package.
Also available are seven different families of power sensors with frequency coverage up to 50 GHz and dynamic range up to 90 dB. Most Anritsu power sensors can work in either pulsed/modulated or CW mode (the ML2480B/90A series meters offer both modes). In choosing a power sensor, several factors must be considered, including: frequency range, dynamic range, and the modulation type. The rise time of the sensor should also be chosen to match the rise time of the modulation.

This application note describes a process for simulating radar signals using an Anritsu MG3690C Series Microwave Signal Generator, an ML2490A Series Power Meter and MA2411B Power Sensor, and Anritsu PowerMax Software.
The ML2490A series has the performance required for narrow fast rising-edge pulse power measurements (e.g. radar). The ML2480B series is suited for wide-band power measurements on signals such as LTE, W-CDMA, WLAN, and WiMAX. The ML2430A series of power meters are designed for CW applications, offering a combination of accuracy, speed and flexibility in a low cost package.
With seven different families of power sensors to choose from, you can trust you’ll find the right combination for precision power measurement, whatever your application.

This application note shows how to set up and measure Pulsed Radar transmitters with the ML249XA series wideband peak power meter, MA2411B or MA2491A sensor.
This application note shows how to set up and measure WLAN transmitters with the ML2480A Series Wideband Peak Power Meters and MA2490A sensors.
Describes the demands on measuring power on modern communication systems, discussing the technology of power measurement and the errors and uncertainties in making the power measurement. Increased data rate demands from customers have driven the change from simple constant envelope modulation schemes such as FM, used on PMR equipment, first generation mobile phones and microwave links, to more complex schemes such as GMSK, CDMA and N-QAM.
