R&S®NRP18A Average Power Sensor

100 pW to 200 mW, 8 kHz to 18 GHz

Functions and performance features
  • Fully characterized power sensors
  • Minimizing measurement uncertainty
  • Intelligent averaging function minimizes measurement time
  • Versatile measurement functions
  • USBTMC for easy system integration
  • Built-in trigger I/O port
  • Sensor status at a glance with status LED
  • Detachable cables for flexible operation

The power sensors come with various, detachable cables for connection to diverse display units. A screw connection is provided on the sensor end to prevent accidental loosening of the cable.

The R&S®NRP-ZKU USB interface cable can be used to connect a power sensor to a laptop/PC via the USB interface. This is an extremely space-saving and also costefficient solution that does not require a base unit. Two software tools – R&S®Power Viewer Plus and R&S®NRPV virtual power meter – are available to simplify sensor operation from a laptop/PC. These tools support all measurement functions implemented in the sensors.

Multiple options to operate the R&S®NRPxxS/SN, R&S®NRPxxT/TN and R&S®NRPxxA/AN power sensors

The R&S®NRP-ZK6 interface cable is intended for operating a power sensor on the R&S®NRX base unit. It can also be used for connecting the power sensor to diverse Rohde & Schwarz signal generators and signal and spectrum analyzers to enhance these instruments with a highperformance power meter.

Intelligent, LAN enabled power measurements
  • Each sensor available as LAN model
  • Remote monitoring via LAN over any distance

The LAN power sensors are ideal for remote monitoring applications, e.g. for satellite systems or particle accelerators, where sensors need to be placed at different points in the system. The LAN interface makes it easy to overcome large distances between the various test points and the control center.

Simultaneous, location-independent remote monitoring of multiple R&S®NRPxxSN/TN/AN power sensors using a web browser
  • Power supply via Power over Ethernet (PoE)
  • Built-in web GUI
R&S®NRPxxA(N) average power sensors
  • Specially designed for EMC applications

In EMC applications, usually only the average power is of interest. This is where the R&S®NRPxxA(N) 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.
