R&S®NRT-Z, NAP-Z Power Sensors
for Power Reflection Meter
Measurement directly on PC
While conventional power sensors can only be used in conjunction with a base unit, the NRT family is a step further ahead: the sensors are self-contained measuring instruments which are able to communicate with the base unit or with a PC via a standard serial data interface.
Apart from the possibility of operating the sensor directly at the RS-232 or PC Card interface of a PC, this concept provides a number of further benefits: practically maintenance-free base unit, high immunity to radiated interference - an important feature for measurements in the near field of antennas - and remote operation over very long distances (up to 500 m).
