Up to 18 GHz Power Calibration Kit
Discontinued
Call for Refurbished Availability or Alternative Product Selection

 
  • Calibration up to 18 GHz
  • For fast, program-controlled calibration of NRV-Z and URV5-Z sensors
  • Core of the absolute calibration set is a broadband power standard consisting of a power splitter and thermocouple power sensor
  • Power range of –10 to +20 dBm (100 µW to 100 mW)
  • Can be extended to –30 dBm (1 µW) by means of a high-precision 20dB attenuator for the calibration of diode power sensors
  • Test signals are supplied by an RF or micro-wave source, eg Signal Generator SMP

With the introduction of ISO9000 standard specifications and the growing number of related accreditations, manufacturers of measuring equipment are required to cope with an increasing volume of calibration. On-site calibration by the manufacturer or the user is often the fastest and most cost-effective solution, especially when using Calibration Kit NRVC from Rohde & Schwarz.

Rohde & Schwarz's Calibration Kit NRVC is used for fast, program-controlled calibration of Rohde & Schwarz NRV-Z and URV5-Zsensors. Calibration Kit NRVC comprises three sets: NRVC for absolute calibration, option NRVC-B1 for verification, and option NRVC-B2 for linearity checking. The core of the absolute calibration set is a broadband power standard consisting of a power splitter and thermocouple power sensor. The power standard, operated on Dual-Channel Power Meter NRVD, enables exact determination of the measurement accuracy of power and voltage sensors throughout their frequency range and at the relevant reference level. The power range of –10 to +20 dBm (100 µW to 100 mW) can be extended to –30 dBm (1 µW) by means of a high-precision 20dB attenuator for the calibration of diode power sensors. Depending on the frequency range, test signals are supplied by an RF or micro-wave source, eg. Signal Generator SMP.

Display linearity across a wide power range can be checked by means of option NRVC-B2 of the calibration kit. Linearity checks, not commonly performed in the classic calibration of power sensors, prove very useful for modern sensors with their numerically linearized characteristics. A highly linear insertion unit is used as a linearity reference, and test signals are supplied by Power Signal Generator SMGL at a frequency of 50 MHz.

NRVC features high measurement speed for all types of calibration, so only about 15 min are needed to measure a DUT in several positions of its RF connector and for the complete logging of results. Any SWR values measured at a separate test setup can be transferred to the calibration program in the form of an ASCII file. The program checks values for compliance with specifications and includes them in the calibration report.
