PEP Single Element, RF Wattmeter


The 4314C, RF Wattmeter is similar to the model 43 Thruline Wattmeter but also contains electronic circuitry to accurately measure peak envelope power which is present in amplitude modulated signals such as AM broadcast, single sideband and TV video transmitters. The circuitry operates from 2 standard 9V alkaline batteries or an optional A.C. adaptor.

Features
  • Accurate CW and Peak Envelope (PEP) field power measurement over 450 kHz to 2.7 GHz and 100 mW to 10 kW
  • Uses industry standard Bird elements with space to store 2 additional within the meter housing
  • Rugged metal housing for the most demanding environments
  • Quick Change (QC) connectors to minimize the need for adapters when making critical measurements
