Rohde + Schwarz Launches Power Sensors for Radar Applications

Rohde & Schwarz has introduced two new power sensors called the NRP Z86 and the NRP Z85 that can calculate power from 50 MHz to 40 GHz.

The sensors can be linked to a computer through a USB interface and do not require any base unit. The power sensors, which claim to be the first wideband sensors, offer envelope power from 47 to +20 dBm.

Power sensors

Both sensors offer accurate and continuous measurements from 60 to +20 dBm, making them suitable for a number of applications such as design, development and maintenance and production of radar and microwave systems.

Users can operate the sensors from a computer through the R&S NRP/NRP2 power meter or an R&S NRP Z4 USB adapter. The devices can even be linked to Rohde & Schwarz’s spectrum and network analyzer or signal generator. Users can view the power measurement at the analyzer or generator through the DUT.

The power sensors have 80 MHz sampling rate and 30 MHz video bandwidth and are ideal for determining the time attributes of modulated signals. They can perform signal analysis and can determine both average and peak power across a definite time interval.

Users can read pulsed signals with high-time resolution through pulsed signal’s waveforms. They can link the NRP Z86 power sensor to the UT through a 2.4 mm connector and the NRP Z85 sensor through a 2.92 mm connector.
