The Cable Mate is designed for measuring SWR, return loss, or cable insertion loss and locating faulty RF components in antenna systems. Power monitoring capability is available as an option. The displayed trace can be scaled and/or enhanced with settable frequency markers and/or a limit line. A menu option provides for an audible "beep" when the limit value is exceeded. To permit use in low-light environments, the LCD can be back lit using a front panel key.
