Two-path diode power sensors offer cost-effective power measurements
Two new two-path diode power sensors from Rohde & Schwarz, the NRP-Z211 (up to 8 GHz) and R&S NRP-Z221 (up to 18 GHz), offer high measurement speed and accuracy for the price-sensitive production market.
The two new models round out the company’s portfolio of multipath diode power sensors in the lower price segment. Power measurements over a dynamic range of 80 dB (-60 dBm to +20 dBm) are now possible for both CW and modulated signals. According to Rohde & Schwartz, the noise component is half that of comparable solutions on the market. As a result, measurement speed is increased by a factor of four.
