    25-1000 MHz WPS Sensor 500mW-500W (1300W Peak)
    Use with Bird 5000-NG or with your PC Stand Alone

    5017 500mW - 500 Watts, Wideband Power Sensor, USB, RS232

    Bird?s® Wideband Power Sensor Series (WPS) never requires field calibration, only requires calibration once per year and is traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The WPS measures True Average Power, Peak Power, and Duty Cycle directly with exceptional accuracy and uses these precise measurements to calculate a wide range of other important factors, such as VSWR, Return Loss, Reflection Coefficient, Crest Factor, Average Burst Power, and CCDF.
