55 Series Wideband USB Power Sensor

55 Series Wideband USB Power Sensor

Boonton once again sets the standard for fast RF power measure- ments with the introduction of its 55 Series Wideband USB power sensors. Built with Boonton’s Real-Time Power ProcessingTM technology (patent pending), this new product line offers speed and accuracy never before seen in a USB form factor. The 55 Series sensors are ideal for manufacturing, design, research, and service in commercial and military applications such as telecommunications, avionics, RADAR, and medical systems. They are the instrument of choice for fast, accurate and highly reliable RF power measurements, equally suitable for product development, compliance testing, and site monitoring applications
