The Tektronix PSM5320 50 MHz-18.6 GHz NType RF/Microwave Power Sensors/Meter is a compact power sensor/meter that delivers fast, accurate RF and microwave power measurements. A broad range of CW and pulse modulation measurements are available, depending on the series you choose. Each meter comes with Windows Power Meter application software for controlling the meter, displaying readings, and recording data. The combination of the sensor/meter and PC provides a complete solution, eliminating the need for a separate, dedicated meter mainframe.

No Meter Mainframe Required

With the included power meter application software, familiar meter controls are available at the click of a mouse and readings are presented right on your PC screen. Familiar Windows pull-down menus provide additional controls. Data is immediately available on the PC for further analysis and documentation. The meters communicate with the PC using standard USB 2.0 protocols and cables for plug-and-play ease of use.

Integrate High-speed Power Measurements Into Your Testing

Tektronix PSM5320 feature the industry's fastest measurement speed (2000 readings per second). This can significantly reduce test times and provide dynamic power measurement information that was previously unavailable. An included High-speed Logging Application provides a mechanism forgetting this data into your PC for analysis. For custom test applications, you can communicate with the sensors using LabVIEW, or using a fully documented API. Example programs are provided for the most commonly used development environments. The communications library allows your program to communicate with up to 12 sensors, eliminating the need for costly switches.

Tektronix real-time signal analyzers, arbitrary waveform generators, and oscilloscopes that use the Windows operating system can also be used to control the Tektronix PSM5320 Power Sensor/Meter and give you quick access to accurate power measurements. To allow synchronization with other measurement equipment all models include Trigger In and Trigger Out TTL signals. High-speed measurements, extensive programming tools, and synchronization features make these sensors versatile additions to your test setup.

Select the Performance/Features to Meet Your Needs

The Tektronix PSM5320 RF and Microwave Power Sensor/Meter delivers average power (CW) measurements, and adds pulse and peak power measurements for gathering basic data on pulsed RF and microwave signals.

A Broad Range of Pulse Envelope Measurements

The Tektronix PSM5320 features an easy-to-use, high performance, pulse profiling, pulse (modulation), and CW power meter and sensor in one. The Tektronix PSM5320 product is specifically designed for applications requiring time domain analysis of constant-envelope, repetitive pulsed signals. It performs time domain pulse measurements such as rise/fall time, overshoot, and droop that have typically required costly signal analyzers. The Tektronix PSM5320 RF and Microwave Power Sensors uses an equivalent time-sampling technique to reconstruct repetitive, pulsed input signals. Repetitive pulses with video bandwidths up to 10 MHz can be measured with an effective sample rate of up to 48MS/s.
