ETS-LINDGREN’S EMPower PULSE RF/BURST POWER METER is designed to perform very fast measurements on high-frequency pulse-shaped signals (RF bursts).
The EMPower modular plug-in card occupies one slot in the EMCenterTM, and includes four USB ports, accommodating any combination of up to four EMPowerTM or EMPower Pulse sensors. Alternatively, an EMPower Pulse sensor can be connected directly to a PC using a standard USB port and included software.
Both power meters have an accuracy of 0.25 dB, making them suitable for measurements in accordance to automotive, military, telecom, and basic EMC standards.
EMPower Pulse is fully supported by TILE!TM, EMQuestTM, and other test automation software packages.
