The R&S®NRP170TWG(N) from Rohde & Schwarz is a Thermal Power Sensor with a frequency range from 110 to 170 GHz. It has a dynamic range of -35 to +20 dBm and can perform up to 500 measurements per second. This plug-and-play power sensor is fully calibrated for long-term stability and is designed to reduce measurement noise and drift while maintaining accuracy. It can compensate for environmental temperature influences within the operating temperature range from 0°C to +50°C. The power sensor offers full traceability to national metrology institutes (NMI) – which is a prerequisite for commercial and industrial utilization of a frequency band.
The R&S®NRP170TWG(N) thermal power sensor is a fully calibrated plug-and-play device that can be easily integrated into any measurement setup with a USB or LAN connection. It can be easily screw-connected to the signal source to be measured. A ball bearing in the coupling nut ensures that only the coupling nut has to be turned to tighten the sensor, and the sensor body stays fixed in the required position. This power sensor is available in a module with a waveguide interface and is suitable for general R&D for 6G mobile communications, novel sub-THz communications, sensing and future automotive radar applications. It is also ideal for satellite communications, research and military radar targeting and tracking applications.
