4028 Series

4028 Series, 2% Accurate, RF Directional Thruline® Precision Power Sensors are a family of high accuracy sensors for use in high power LCD, TFT and Solar processing and other precision high power applications. Intended for use with the industry standard Bird Precision Laboratory Power Meter Model 4421, these products can provide a threefold improvement in long-term unit-to-unit accuracy.

  • Achieve tighter, more consistent RF power measurements for improved yield.
  • ±2% accuracy at specified calibration frequencies and power levels.
  • Direct, plug-in operation with the industry standard Bird Model 4421 RF Power Meter.
  • Multiple sensors provide for measurement of 1 kW to 25 kW over a 250 kHz to 30 MHz frequency range.
