3129, BPME Broadcast Power Monitor Display
The 3129 accurately measures power in digitally modulated and multi-carrier systems and displays the BPME status. The single line display is divided into two fields and displays forward power, and either reflected power or the match measurement.

An indicator in the lower right of the last digit blinks on and off to indicate communication with the BPME. It also acts as a DC power supply. The unit includes a 50 feet of cable to connect RS-232 and serial ports between 3129 and line section, and serial interface cable.

  • Displays match measurements as VSWR, Rho, Return Loss, or efficiency.
  • Supplies DC power to the BPME
  • Displays the BPME alarm status
  • Provides an electrical interface for the discrete outputs from the BPME
  • Provides an interface to connect a PC to the BPME
  • VSWR, return loss and match efficiency calculations using hardware or PC-based software displays
  • ±5% of reading accuracy for power, ±10% for VSWR
  • Handles peak to average ratio of greater than 10 dB.
