Agilent E4416A Peak and Average Power Meter available for immediate rental

Advanced Test Equipment Rental’s high-performing Agilent E4416A single-channel power meter is a low-cost, single-box solution for peak, peak-to-average ratio, average power and time gated measurements.

San Diego, Calif., January 12, 2010—Advanced Test Equipment Rental’s high-performing Agilent E4416A single-channel power meter is a low-cost, single-box solution for peak, peak-to-average ratio, average power and time gated measurements—for the complex modulation formats used in today’s and future wireless communications systems.

Time-gated measurements are performed using the meters comprehensive triggering features, such as an external TTL compatible trigger input. Up to 4 simultaneous time-gated measurements can be made. Individual start and duration times can be setup, allowing users to measure the average, peak or peak-to-average ratio. For example, on a GSM signal, this capability can be used to measure the average power over 5 to 95 percent of the burst duration, as well as measuring the peak power and pulse droop.

Faster test times improve manufacturing productivity and efficiency. The meter’s 20 Msamples/second continuous sampling rate provides the capability to accurately profile complex modulation formats of up to 5 MHz bandwidth.

The LCD display is arranged into two windows and provides user’s with the ability to show either a large 1-line or up to a 4-line numeric measurement display, or an analog display, or show the trace display. To provide an intuitive user interface, the meter’s hardkeys provide the most frequently used functions for making measurements on TDMA and CDMA signals, such as the TRIGGER function, while the softkey menus simplify configuring the meter for the user’s particular measurement needs.
