Rohde and Schwarz has recently expanded its power sensor portfolio by unveiling the NRP-Z58. R&S' latest product is a device that boasts a frequency range from DC to 110GHz and a measurement speed of 300 readings/s in buffered mode.

The NRP-Z58 also provides a power measurement range of –35 dBm to +20 dBm. For relative measurements, such as amplification and reflection, the NRP-Z58 achieves linearity of 0.007 dB (0.16 per cent) up to 67GHz and 0.010 dB (0.23 per cent) between 67GHz and 110GHz.

Like all of the company's thermal power sensors, the NRP-Z58 connects directly to a PC via a USB port in order to analyse measurement results. It can also be used in combination with the R&S NRP2 base unit or with nearly any signal generator, signal and spectrum analyser, or network analyser from Rohde & Schwarz. The power sensor's 1-mm coaxial plug screws securely onto the jack of the measuring instrument, providing high measurement reproducibility.

Further information regarding the NRP-Z58 can be found here.
