Bird - The RF Experts
7020 Series, RF Power Sensors

350 MHz to 4.2 GHz, 0.15 to 150W
RF Power Sensor - Extended Frequency

The 7020-1-020101 RF Power Sensor is an economical, plug and play solution to your power measurement needs. The 7020 determines and reports Forward and Reflected True Average Power and VSWR over a wide frequency range of 350 MHz to 4.2 GHz. It also never requires field calibration, only requires factory calibration once per year and is traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
