Brief Description

Thermal power sensors are especially used for complex measurement tasks. They feature higher accuracy and tolerate any type of modulation.

To improve measurement accuracy, the hardware of the R&S®NRP-Z5x thermal power sensors is designed to reduce measurement noise to a minimum and to make the sensor immune to thermal environmental effects. These sensor characteristics are particularly beneficial in reference applications and calibration labs.
