R&S®NRP-Z86 Wideband Power Sensor

Time domain analysis and automatic pulse analysis for radar applications and universal use

Key Facts

  • Measurement range: -60 dBm to +20 dBm (1 nW to 100 mW)
  • Frequency range: 50 MHz to 40 GHz (50 MHz to 500 MHz with reduced video bandwidth)
  • 2.4 mm connector

Brief Description

The R&S®NRP-Z86 wideband power sensors are ideal for radar applications. In development or during installation and maintenance, pulse characteristics as well as output power have to be measured. Similar measurements are required in the production of radar systems and radar components.

Brief Description

The R&S®NRP-Z86 wideband power sensors are ideal for radar applications. In development or during installation and maintenance, pulse characteristics as well as output power have to be measured. Similar measurements are required in the production of radar systems and radar components. Thanks to a maximum video bandwidth of 30 MHz and a rise/fall time < 13 ns, the sensors can measure pulses with a pulse width as small as 50 ns.

Key pulse parameters are determined automatically to simplify the measurement and prevent operating errors. By increasing the sampling rate, the high-resolution mode for repetitive signals permits the display of strongly magnified signal sections with a high graphical resolution.
