Overview

The 97 Series SWR Autotesters integrate a high directivity bridge, a detector, a low reflection test port, and a precision reference termination. The 97 Series units are broadband microwave measurement components that are used with the Model 56100A Scalar Network Analyzer and with Series 54100A Scalar Measurement System for making fixed-frequency and swept-frequency return loss (SWR) measurements. Return loss measurements are used over a wide range of radio and microwave frequencies to check the performance of systems, subsystems, and microwave components such as amplifiers, directional couplers, attenuators, filters, splitters, and terminations.

  • Up to 36 dB directivity
  • 10 MHz to 18 GHz range
  • Test port connect to fit most measurement applications; avoids use of adapters
  • Input Port Impedance: 50 Ohms
  • Insertion Loss (from input to test port): 6.5 dB nominal
  • Detector Output Polarity: Negative
  • Output Time Constant: 2 ms
  • Maximum Power Input: 0.5 watts (+27 dBm)
  • Temperature range: +25°C ±5°C
