Channel RF Power Sensors


4042 RF Power Sensors provide both forward and reflected individual channel power measurements with +/-5% of full scale accuracy, at power levels of up to 500 watts and is also NIST traceable. This sensor is intended for use at the transmit combiner output, in order to provide both individual channel output from the combiner power, as well as antenna VSWR information.

Forward and reflected power measurements of the 4042 sensors determine the VSWR of your ANTENNA and cable feedline. Know immediately when your antenna is damaged and your transmission is compromised.
