Want to measure something more than +20dBm? Simply buy this beefy attenuator to drop down the power! This attenuator can accept a maximum continuous power of 2 watts (+33 dBm).
This isn't some generic attenuator import, either. It is a genuine VAT-20W2+ from Mini-Circuits, a world leader in RF components. This high quality attenuator has an extremely flat response across our Power Meter frequency range, with 1:1.16 SWR at our highest supported frequency.
While the component is rated to 2 Watts, it can probably handle small pulses of higher power levels. But be careful! You don't want to exceed the +20dBm limit on the meter.
When you use this attenuator, just add 20dB to any number you see for the actual power output indicated.
