TPS Series, Terminating Power Sensors are the easiest to use, most cost competitive terminating sensors on the market. This one port measurement device will provide True Average Power for forward power or reflected power if attached to a Directional Coupler or total power in the line if connected to a Non-Directional Coupler. The TPS is a true "plug and play solution" with no front panel calibration required at any time.
Model 5011 Terminating Power Sensor (Used, 90 Day Warranty)
40 MHz - 4.0 GHz, Terminating Power Sensor
The TPS is truly the most economical terminating sensor, half the price of our leading competitors. Quite a value considering the TPS is a highly accurate (5%) device with calibration traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Also available in a USB compatible version.
