Anritsu introduces the ML2488A, a multi-standard power meter for WLAN and Bluetooth( power measurements. Addressing the important issues of power control, peak power, and timing in the design and implementation of wireless networks, Anritsu's ML2488A delivers accurate power measurements related to all Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11 WLAN standards.
With its high sampling rate of 64 Ms/s, the ML2488A offers accurate peak power detection for wide bandwidth systems such as those compatible with 802.11a/b/g. The ML2488A power meter covers 100 kHz to 65 GHz with power measurements from 70 dBm to +20 dBm, depending upon the sensor range. Among the compatible sensors are the MA2491A and MA2490A wideband power sensors. Featuring a unique combination of a wide 20 MHz bandwidth plus its high sampling rate, the ML2488A has many built-in features including gates, templates, wireless presets, and a high-visibility color display that simplify conducting power measurements. In addition to measuring the power of Bluetooth and 802.11 signals, the ML2488A provides strong performance for testing radar, electronic warfare, pulsed amplifiers, and other commercial wireless systems.
