SPS power sensor
  • SPS power sensor

    The device is designed to measure microwave signal
    power from 50 MHz up to 6/26.5/50 GHz. The SPS power
    sensor is used for manufacturing and monitoring of RF and
    MW devices as well as for tuning and testing of microwave
    assemblies used in communications, instrument engineering
    and measuring equipment.

    • Modification

      1. SPS06 (50 MHz…6 GHz)
      2. SPS26 (50 MHz…26.5 GHz)
      3. SPS50 (50 MHz…50 GHz)
    • Technical features

       

      The main abilities of SPS sensors are following:

      • operation as a part of a measuring system;
      • absolute and relative power measurement modes;
      • displaying results in linear and logarithmic scales;
      • time-gated measurement with signal envelope indication (SPS06);
      • logging measured data in computer file.

      Power sensors are provided with connectors for external synchronization. SCPI-based text command system provides device integration with automated instrumentation systems.

      Software

      SPS-Client software is used to interact with SPS power sensor.

      • user-friendly interface;
      • saving measurement data to file;
      • setting of compensation for attenuation/amplification by external devices;
      • graphic display of measurement data;
      • signal-wave envelope display (in accumulation mode, available for SPS06);
      • time markers to monitor signal power variations;
      • saving/downloading profiles for measuring circuits.
