100 MHz - 1 GHz, Channel RF Power Sensors


4042 RF Power Sensors provide both forward and reflected power measurements that are NIST traceable. These sensors are intended for use at the transmit combiner output, in order to provide both combiner power, as well as antenna VSWR information.

Utilizing the forward and reflected power measurements of the 4042 RF Sensors, determine the VSWR of your Antenna and cable feedline. Know immediately when your antenna is damaged and your transmission is compromised.
