Multipower RF Wattmeter with ±5% Reading Accuracy

The 4410A RF Wattmeter has the basic principles and “look and feel” of the Model 43 but transforms it into a highly accurate high dynamic range instrument. The meter has two scales, a 0 to 1 scale and a 0 to 3 scale.

Power is read as a multiple of the value indicated by the pointer, the decimal point location depending upon the range switch position and the factor printed on the plug-in element. Power ranges covered by individual elements are 300 mW to 1 KW and 2 W to 10 KW, full scale. For most elements, accuracy is +/-5% anywhere above 20% of full scale. The circuitry operates from a standard 9V alkaline battery.

  • Temperature-compensated accurate CW and FM power measurements from 200 kHz to 1 GHz and 300 mW to 10 kW
  • Uses special 4410-series wide-range elements
  • Wide-range accuracy over a 37 dB dynamic range
  • Quick Change (QC) connectors to minimize the need for adapters when making critical measurements
product specifications:

±5% of reading for any reading above 20% of the Power Range selected for FM or CW signals without AM. This accuracy is maintained for a full 37 dB dynamic range with each 4410 Element (except No. 4410-1, 200 kHz to 535 kHz, which is accurate to ±10% of reading, to 2.3 GHz, which are accurate to ±8% of reading.)
Usuable Over Range
To 120% of nominal full scale
(i.e. 12 W, 120 W, 1200 W, or 12,000 W). No damage or degradation to the unit will result, regardless of the Range Selector Switch position
