Power Meters

microwave power meter is an instrument which measures the electrical power at microwave frequencies typically in the range 100 MHz to 40 GHz.

Usually a microwave power meter will consist of a measuring head which contains the actual power sensing element, connected via a cable to the meter proper, which displays the power reading. The head may be referred to as a power sensor or mount. Different power sensors can be used for different frequencies or power levels. Historically the means of operation in most power sensor and meter combinations was that the sensor would convert the microwave power into an analogue voltage which would be read by the meter and converted into a power reading. Several modern power sensor heads contain electronics to create a digital output.

dBD Communications offer a range of both portable and panel mount Power Meters measuring from milliwatts to kilowatts for both forward and reverse applications. We have various models to suit different needs with both analogue and digital read outs. We can offer peak and average applications in various bands across the power range. We offer Power Meters that are suitable for High Power requirements, Broadband, Peak/Average Reading, Relative Strength,  Panel Mount, Monitor/Alarm systems, Plug In Elements, Line Sections, Adjustable Tap Offs,  Signal Samplers, Plug In Extractors – both and directional, See our full range below.
