Rugged power meters

EMC immunity testing makes very specific demands on RF power meters. A large dynamic range, fast measurements, rugged design and a frequency range that matches the application are some of the unique requirements for power meters in an EMC test environment.

TESEQ
has introduced The PM 6006 power meter which has been specially designed to meet these demanding requirements.

Two models are available. The PMU 6006 is designed for connection via the USB interface and is supplied with Windows-based control software. In addition to having different graphical display modes available, the software provides averaging, offset use, and the ability to switch units to dBm, dbμV or V. It can also handle simultaneous readouts of multiple power meters. The PMU 6006 is powered by the USB connection.

The second model is the PMR 6006, designed for direct connection to the recently introduced Teseq ITS 6006 Immunity Test System. Up to three power meters can be connected and the power measured can be read by either the ITS 6006 software utility or by optional Test House Software.

Common specifications are frequency range 1 MHz to 6 GHz, linear measurement range -45 to +20 dBm, RMS power using log detector, low voltage detection. Both power meters feature a ruggedly designed metal casing and have LED indication of power on and measurement activity.
Paul Dixon, Managing Director of Teseq Ltd comments;”These new power meters add to our extensive EMC testing capabilities giving our customers the flexibility to make stand alone measurements or buy into one of our comprehensive suites of test systems and software.”
