BIRD5010B  Power Sensor for 5000XT, Bird Electronics

The Bird Directional Power Sensor (DPS) is the most flexible RF sensor on the market today. With this Dual-Socket, Thruline® sensor, you may select from a wide range of Bird Elements to tailor the unit to your needs over a wide range of frequencies and power levels. Also, select field changeable input and output RF connectors from dozens of types including (N, BNC, HN, 7/16 DIN). Operate your sensor with either our new hand held display, the 5000-XT, or via a computer with our windows compatible software tool the VPM2.

The DPS measures True Average Power and/or Peak Power with exceptional accuracy that is traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). It is also a highly economical RF power measurement tool offering reliable results for hundreds, not thousands of dollars.
