A Guide to LadyBug LB5900 Series True RMS Sensors

by Ladybug

LadyBug Technologies has been at the forefront of the power sensor technology since its inception. The company designs, manufactures, and delivers various types of first tier NIST traceable USB power sensors. The power sensors are organized under three categories— True RMS Sensors, Peak, Pulse and Averaging Sensors, and Wideband Pulse Profiling Sensors. Our sensors are made in the USA.

The Importance of NIST Traceable Calibration for USB Power Sensors

by Ladybug

USB power sensors are used for power measurement and are connected to a computer or other device that is used to display the measurement. Their rugged design can be used in harsh environments.

USB power sensors, do not need a traditional power meter, but instead use a computer which adds flexibility and capability. Further, the uncertainty between the sensor and power meter is eliminated.

A Guide to Prevent Damage of RF Power Sensors

by Ladybug

RF power sensors are designed to accurately measurer RF power. They feature rugged construction and are designed for long-term performance. Does that mean they can’t be damaged? No, they can be damaged, and users end up spending time and money on repairs. The most common cause of damage is applying excess power to the sensor. This post explains some good practices that will help users improve the performance and lifespan of RF power sensors. The tips mentioned here are based on the assessment conducted by the experts at LadyBug during the repair.

Analyzing Radar Signals with Wideband Power Sensors

by Ladybug

Radio Detection and Ranging (Radar) pulsed radio transmission and reception to identify entities based on their velocity, distance, angle, and other parameters. They are used in mission-critical applications such as defense, aerospace, ships, spacecraft, and so on. A radar system senses bounced RF electromagnetic signals received from a target to gather information about the target entity. The received signals are interpreted in various ways such as pulse repetition frequency, pulse width, and so on.

Important Tips for Selection of RF Power Meters

by Ladybug

Radio frequency (RF) power meters are calibrated broad band measurement devices.  The radio frequency power can be displayed in watts or dBm (decibel-milliwatts). Applications are boundless, RF power meters are an important tool for testing any microwave device. There are many applications involving power measurement including manufacturing test of consumer, industrial and military communications equipment. The applications can have a substantial variation in modulation and power level. When choosing a USB power sensor, you must consider factors such as frequency and dynamic range to fit your requirement. This post discusses the factors you should consider to be able to select the right RF power meters based on your application.
