Peak, CW & Average Power Sensors
The overall performance of a power meter dependents on
the power sensor employed. Boonton has a variety of quality
power sensors to meet virtually all applications. Boonton has a
complete line of Peak and Average power sensors up to 40 GHz
for all of your fast rise time, wide bandwidth and wide dynamic
range applications.
• Fast measurement speed
• Wide dynamic range (-70 dBm to +20 dBm)
• Calibration factors, linearity and temperature compensations
data stored in EEPROM
• Excellent SWR for reducing mismatch uncertainty
• Accurate calibration and unique traceability to NIST
• Compatible with the most of Boonton power meter series
Calibration and Traceability
Boonton employs both a linearity calibration as well as a frequency response calibration. This maximizes the performance of

Fig 2: Typical continues power measurement using sensor connected to a CW or modulated signal. This is a common power
measurement method and the power meter simply displays the
average power of the signal. The display can be either numeric or graphical mode in dBm or watts. With the high sensor
bandwidth, frequency and linearity correction applied continuously by the instrument, it is possible to make most accurate
measurements of RF signals.
Fig 3: Example of statistical measurement (CCDF) by using a
fast peak power sensor with a Boonton 4542 Power Meter.
A CCDF value of close to 0% describes the highest measured
power level; a CCDF value in the proximity of 100% is the power
distribution that is most frequent. This mode allows to analyze
the noise like signals as most of the modern communication
technologies represent.
Fig 4: Pulse mode screen of Boonton 4542 using peak power
sensors. For periodic waveforms, automatic measurement is
usually available in triggered pulse modes. Once a stable periodic signal is detected, the instrument automatically locates the
waveform transition and displays parameters such as rise time,
fall time, pulse frequency, width, overshoot and average power
