Turnkey Solution for High Power Measurement


The SCC8 Calibration Cart provides the ideal solution for the calibration of high power RF generators with power measurement up to 25 kW. It combines the high accuracy Bird 4028 Series Power Sensor, a user friendly 4421A Multifunction Power Meter, and a Bird Moduload in an easily transportable mobile package. The system is indispensable for semiconductor clean room applications.

The 4028 Series Power Sensor models are available for a range frequency bands from 250 kHz to 30 MHz. These highly accurate sensors measure RF power without requiring field calibration, external couplers or attenuators. The built-in Bird Moduloads are low reflection 50 Ohm terminations that can dissipate up to 25 kW. Contact Bird for customization assistance to ensure the calibration cart is optimized to your application.
