The ML2437A Power Meter combines the advantages of thermal meter accuracy, diode meter speed, and peak power meter display graphics. The result is a single instrument that samples at more than 35K per second and achieves 90 dB dynamic range with a single sensor. This meter includes graphics display capability as a standard feature. The ruggedized housing and optional high-capacity NiMH battery bring laboratory quality accuracy to field service applications. ML2437A has one input.
- 90 dB dynamic range
Typical communications industry ATE systems operate over a 60 to 80 dB dynamic range. The MA247xD Series' 90 dB dynamic range replaces two 50 dB sensors.
- High reliability/Field Ready
Rugged poly-carbonate chassis design handles rough field treatment and is splash resistant.
- Improved accuracy
The MA24xx Series Power Sensors offer a typical 5 to 6 dB improvement in sensor return loss, typically cutting mismatch uncertainty in half.
- Softkey menu control
Softkey menus simplify instrument control by making the user interface easier to understand. The numerical keypad simplifies the operator interface.
The optional NiMH “Smart” battery supports high charge density for a typical 8 hour day of operation.
The ML2430A Series also supports high speed voltage measurement. A rear panel BNC measures voltage or operates as V/GHz input supporting automated sensor calibration factor correction.
