Anritsu introduces power meter capability to its Site, Cell, BTS, and spectrum master products

Supplier News

The new option brings unprecedented power measurement capability to the field, and combines with the inherent advantages of Anritsu’s industry-leading handheld analyser design to make it simpler and more cost efficient to deploy, install, and maintain wireless networks.

The new power meter option is used in conjunction with the PSN50 power sensor and provides highly accurate power measurements from 50 MHz to 6 GHz. Bringing lab performance to the field, the PSN50 sensors delivers true RMS measurements from -30dBm to +20dBm, and can make highly accurate measurements for both CW and digitally-modulated signals, such as GSM/EDGE, CDMA/EV-DO, and WCDMA/HSDPA. The high accuracy of +/-0.16 dB is complemented by return loss of 26 dB <2 GHz, damage power level of +33dBm, and ESD protection of 3.3 kV.

A number of advanced features have been designed into the power meter option to ensure high performance. Efficiency and mismatch losses are automatically corrected due to a cal factor correction feature. A zero feature removes noise and improves overall accuracy for low-level signals. For signals with high variation, there is an averaging feature, while a max hold feature displays the maximum value of the non-averaged data. Measurement results are displayed in both dBm and watts.

The power meter can be easily integrated into any of the designated handheld analysers. BTS Master is a multi-functional base station test tool that provides spectrum analysis, cable and antenna analysis interference analysis, channel scanner, spectrograms, WCDMA/HSDPA, GSM/EDGE Over-The-Air, RF and demodulation measurements, and a GPS receiver.

Covering 25 MHz to 4000 MHz, S331D/S332D are designed to accurately locate and identify RF cable feed-line and antenna system faults. They are ideally suited for installing, commissioning, troubleshooting and maintaining wireless systems infrastructures, including VHF, broadcasting, paging, cellular, LMR, PCS/GSM, 3G, ISM, WLAN and WLL applications.

For network installation and maintenance, Cell Master MT8212B eliminates the need for field engineers and field technicians to carry, manage and learn multiple test sets. Cell Master MT8212B includes a cable and antenna analyser, spectrum analyser, RF and demodulation analyser, CDMA/EVDO, GSM, over-the-air measurements, a transmission analyser for 2-port devices, interference analyser, channel scanner, GPS receiver, bias tee, CW signal generator, and T1/E1 analyser in a compact design weighing less than five pounds.

MS2711D, which covers 100 kHz to 3.0 GHz, has a typical noise floor of ≤ –135dBm. MS2711D can perform full span sweeps from 9 kHz to 3 GHz in ≤1.1 seconds, while the sweep speed in zero span can be set from <50 µs up to 200 seconds. The MS2711D’s AM/FM/SSB demodulator further improves a user’s ability to identify interfering signals.
