Power meter accelerates complex test set-ups
To reduce the time needed for complex test set-ups, Rohde & Schwarz has equipped its new RF power meter with touchscreen operation to guide the user through test set-up configuration. The R&S NRX has up to four measurement channels, for which Rohde & Schwarz offers a range of power sensors. For the first time, both terminating and directional power sensors are supported in a single instrument, says Rohde & Schwarz.
Designed to meet the challenge of high-precision RF power measurement for modern applications, the R&S NRX allows users to transparently configure their measurements and perform them conveniently. The R&S NRX even makes it possible to perform triggered and synchronised multi-channel measurements with different power sensors.
The user operates the instrument via the integrated, high-resolution five-inch (127mm) touchscreen and measurements are configured using large buttons. The system supports the user with a logical calibration and draws attention to conflicts. If required, the instrument can also be operated using the buttons on its front panel.
The R&S NRX is supplied with two robust sensor ports, which can be optionally upgraded to four. Sensors can also be connected via USB or Ethernet.
The user can connect all terminating power sensors from the Rohde & Schwarz portfolio to the sensor connectors. The R&S NRX-B9 sensor interface module integrates the directional power sensors of the R&S NRT-Z family into the measurement to determine power in both transmission directions.
Using the optional R&S NRX-B1 sensor check source module, users can test sensors for a pending measurement. The high-precision 50MHz/1GHz reference generator module generates continuous-wave signals as well as pulsed steep-slope signals.
