ETS-Lindgren has extended its range of EMPower RF power meters to comply with the measurement requirements of the ETSI 300 328 and 301 893 standards for wideband data transmission systems, including IEEE 802.11TM, Bluetooth and Zigbee. The model 7002-006 provides measurements over a frequency range from 10 MHz up to 6 GHz.
To achieve the measurement requirements of the standards, the sampling speed of the EMPower Pulse power heads has been increased to a maximum of 5 MS/s. A hardware trigger input/ output has also been added to allow synchronous power measurements of wideband data transmission devices with multiple inputs/outputs (MIMO).
The EMPower is equipped with an USB interface which enables direct connection of the Power heads to a PC USB port.
The EMPower model 7002-006 offers a burst mode, compliant with the measurement methods as defined in the ETSI standards for wideband data transmission systems EN 300 328 (2.4 GHz) and EN 301 893 (5 GHz).
In burst mode, the EMPower can store the information of 100.000 bursts and observation time up to 60 seconds. For each burst the average power and timing data is stored in the buffer. The model 7002-006 uses a sample speed of 1 or 5 MSps in combination with a RMS detector to ensure correct measurements on wideband modulating transceivers.
For MIMO devices multiple model 7002-006 power meters units can be daisy-chained using the MMCX connectors enabling synchronised triggering of the EMPower meters.
