Model 8651A Single Channel Universal Power Meter

The Spanawave/Giga-tronics 8651A Single Channel Universal Power Meter has the extensive measurement capabilities and features you need to test today's sophisticated communications systems faster, easier and more accurately.

The 8651A can measure the CW power, peak power and average power of TDMA, GSM, and CDMA (both IS-95 and third-generation 10 MHz wide band) signals. CW measurement speeds (readings/second) over GPIB are >1,750 and modulated measurement speeds are >300. And the meter includes many time saving features such as automatic time gate setting, direct crest factor measurement, and statistical power measurement analysis.

Don't forget to check out the "Compatible Product" for the Power Sensors compatible to this 8651A Single Channel Universal Power Meter.
