New 19 Inch Rack Mount Wattmeter with Bird Line Section N or UHF or BNC

New 19 Inch Rack Mount Wattmeter with Bird Line Section N or UHF or BNC 

Bird 43 MeterThe item is one new 19 inch rack mount wattmeter which employs a standard Bird single element line section identical to the one used in the Bird 43 shown to the left.

The line section is a high-precision 50-ohm coaxial air line that inserts between the transmitter and the antenna or load.  A socket is provided in each line section for a plugin element with the desired power rating and frequency range.  Line section ends are equipped with "QC"-type connectors.

The item will be supplied with two female "N"-type or "UHF"-type or BNC -type"QC" connectors.  These connectors can be interchanged in the field without affecting instrument calibration and the buyer may specify which type is preferred

The instrument's indicating meter is 12 volt lighted 30-microampere meter with scales of 25, 50, and 100; permitting full-scale direct-power reading from 100 milliwatts to 10,000 watts with the appropriate choice of plug in elements.

Plug-in elements determine the power rating and the frequency range, and these values are marked on each element.  The elements rotate to read both forward and reflected power.  There is no need for calibration charts or instrument adjustments.  Elements can be purchased at any time and replaced in the field.  For added convenience, Model 43 connectors and elements are interchangeable with many other Bird wattmeters.  No elements are included in this sale.

Remote installation can easily be achieved by removing the Model 43's RF line section and inserting it at any desired point in the line.  For best visibility, the meter itself can be relocated using the 32-inch meter cable supplied in the instrument housing.  Additional meter cable lengths can be ordered separately.
