R&S®NRP6A Average Power Sensor

100 pW to 200 mW, 8 kHz to 6 GHz

Key facts

  • Measurement range: -70 dBm to +23 dBm
  • Frequency range: 8 kHz to 6 GHz
  • N connector
  • Specially designed for EMC applications
  • Measurement of continuous average power

Brief description

In EMC applications, usually only the average power is of interest. This is where the NRP6A average power sensors are the perfect fit. They cover measurement ranges that are used in radio telecommunications as well as the important lower frequency bands down to 8 kHz.

Brief description

In EMC applications, usually only the average power is of interest. This is where theR&S®NRP6A average power sensors are the perfect fit. They cover measurement ranges that are used in radio telecommunications as well as the important lower frequency bands down to 8 kHz. Users benefit from the excellent properties of the three-path diode power sensors, including a dynamic range of up to 93 dB, very low influence of the modulation on the measurement and outstanding impedance matching.
