SCC8 Series

Lab Grade Calibration Cart, High Power


SCC8 Series, Calibration Carts are designed for immediate, effortless use. It has three primary components. The 4421 Multifunction Power Meter displays RF power. 4028 Series Power Sensors are highly accurate sensors that measure RF power without requiring calibration or external couplers or attenuators. Bird Moduloads are low reflection 50 Ohm terminations that can dissipate up to 10 or 25kW. These components are installed into a cart for easy transportation. The cart is suitable for use in a clean room environment and is equipped with four swivel casters for maximum maneuverability.

Features
  • The mobile cart is stainless steel and has locking wheels
  • High return loss ensures minimal power measurement error contribution
  • Available in international and domestic versions
  • Service plans available with Bird Service Center

Note: See datasheet for build options
