The latest hybrid coupler on the market is able to cover a full MHz spectrum, ranging from one thousand to eight thousand. In lieu of the markets and industries being served today, there are many other directional couplers that will be given due consideration by industrialists and business owners across the board. The latest hybrid coupler on the market is a ninety-degree coupler. It is a robust unit that works well at the modular level.
Typical markets that will have a use for these field couplers include the military, health services industries, government and private institutions and universities with their own laboratory testing facilities. Design features of the couplers include the following. The MHZ range was already mentioned. How about GHz frequencies then? Design and manufacture intentions strive for multi-octave performance levels and as much power as possible.
Tolerance levels are good. Couplers are designed to take into account severe input imbalances and full input failures. Significantly, they are also able to handle extreme environment conditions. Digital power meters have the following features. They are capable of optimized rates of accuracy. They are conveniently compact and can be transported easily. And no on site calibrations are required.
High power designs can manage instantaneous and simultaneous forward and reverse power measurements. This happens whilst covering the 40 Db dynamic range. Together with a VCWR alarm, multiple temperature sensors can be put out. In-line power meters can monitor various frequency and power ranges, all with accurate levels better than five percent. Meters have a graphic interface.
This interface allows for on-site testing. It also gives the user secure off the site monitoring capabilities. This is done via lower area networking, also known as LAN. The output power of communication base station transmitters and high powered HF systems can also be tested with these devices.
