USB / Ethernet Smart Power Sensor, 50Ω, -30 dBm to +20 dBm, 1 MHz to 8000 MHz


Mini-Circuits’ PWR-8GHS-RC is a compact sensor-head that turns any PC into an average power meter for CW (continuous waveform) signals. The sensor has a 50 dB input dynamic range and wide bandwidth, allowing measurement of RF powers down to -30 dBm over 1 to 8000 MHz.
The USB HID interface is “plug & play” compatible, meaning no driver installation is required, while the additional Ethernet interface allows remote power measurements over a network. Full software support is provided, including our user-friendly GUI application for Windows and a full API with programming instructions for Windows and Linux environments (both 32-bit and 64-bit systems).


• USB or Ethernet control • Fast Measurement rate: 30 ms • Cost-effective power measurements • USB control with full software support
