Measuring pulsed power with the NRT-Z14


to measure a pulsed RF signal (example: 162Mhz duration about 30-40ms with about 1W)
with an NRT2 connected to a NRT-Z14


Please use the function "Peak Envelope Power - PEP"

This is the periodically recurring peak value of the carrier power at maximum modulation. The PEP is an important parameter for describing the modulation characteristics of transmitter output stages. The level difference between PEP and AVG may be between 0 dB (CW signal) and some 10 dB (radar bursts).

Adjusting the PEP hold time may also be helpful
