This chapter describes the instrument setup for general power meter measurements.
The Power Meter can display measured power in dBm, dBV, dBmV, dBµV, Volts, or Watts. No external sensor is required. The Power Meter frequency span can be set from 1 kHz to 100 MHz. The Full Band submenu key conveniently sets the frequency range to 100 MHz on the current center frequency in order to simulate a broadband measurement.
The maximum and minimum values of the analog display can be set in the Amplitude menu. The scale of the analog display reflects the Unit selection. Relative Power is a useful feature to obtain the power reading with respect to a specific power level.
Screen captured images are provided as examples. The image and measurement details shown on your instrument may differ from the examples in this measurement guide.
