WPS Series, Wideband Power Sensors
5018D

5018D, 100mW - 25W Avg, 60W Peak Wideband Power Sensor never requires field calibration, only requires calibration once per year and is traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The WPS measures True Average Power, Peak Power, and Duty Cycle directly with exceptional accuracy and uses these precise measurements to calculate a wide range of other important factors, such as VSWR, Return Loss, Reflection Coefficient, Crest Factor, Average Burst Power, and CCDF.

Included Accessories: User Manual, VPM3 - Virtual Power Meter Software and Manual, 10 ft. USB Cable.

Note:
The astrisk (*) displayed in the Product Specifications indicates (for temperatures above 35°C or below 15°C add 3.0% to stated accuracies) - this includes the entire "Accuracy-Peak Envelope Power" spec as well.
