SKU: RLB-I Categories: ,

Description

ITEM RLB-IThe RLB-I internal reference (three ports) is a high performance ReturnLoss Bridgeoptimized for ham radio applications. The internal reference impedance is 50 ohms. The bridge components are precision SMD devices with a wide band 1:1 750 MHz SMD transformer using micro strip construction.

Return Loss Bridges operate by comparing the unknown impedance to a reference impedance. The INPUT port is connected to a test frequency source such as an RF oscillator or tracking generator from a spectrum analyzer. The DET (detector) is connected to an oscilloscope or spectrum analyzer for analysis. The DUT (device under test) is connected to the item to be tested such as an antenna, network, coax, or any other device. If the impedances of the internal reference to the DUT are exactly equal, than the detector output will be essential zero (0). Most bridges have a residual return loss from 30-40 dB (1000-1 to about 10,000). This high sensitivity allows for measuring equivalent SWR of 1:101 or better.
