Choosing a USB power sensor involves many of the same criteria as traditional power meters and sensors. Factors like frequency range, dynamic range, accuracy, zero and calibration, speed of measurements, and triggering continue to be critical to the selection process.

Power sensors are available in a wide degree of ranges that cover frequencies from several kHz to 110 GHz. The most commonly used ranges are through 6 GHz to 20 GHz. Since power sensors are broadband detectors, they detect all RF power at their input across the entire frequency range. Variations in the frequency response of the sensor are accounted for in the calibration table stored within the sensor.

Dynamic Range – Dynamic range is the range of power over which a sensor is capable of making useful measurements. This range depends upon the type of sensor technology used. Diode based sensors have the widest dynamic range usually ranging from -60 dBm to +20 dBm or more.
