4540 Peak Power Meter
Boonton's versatile 4541 (1 Ch) and 4542 (2 Ch) combined Peak / Average Power and Voltage meters are leading edge instruments for most accurate RF measurements. Features like high dynamic range, rise time of less than 7ns and an effective time resolution of 200 ps provide the greatest detail in signal waveform analysis. These meters are the instruments of choice for capturing, displaying and analyzing RF power in both the time and statistical domains. Applications include pulsed RF signals such as RADAR, MRI particle accelerators, pseudorandom or noise-like signals such as CDMA, WLAN and WiMAX, LTE, UMTS. The high dynamic range and very fast sampling rate make the 4540 series also ideal to measure RF telecommunication amplifiers. Both Boonton 4541 and 4542 Power meters, have built in step calibrators for highest accuracy allowing calibrating sensors over their full range right before the measurement. A wide range of power sensors and voltage probes is available for these instruments.
