Bird Technologies unveils ACM500 antenna, cable monitor
Bird Technologies Group has launched the ACM500, a new addition to its antenna and cable monitor product line.
Rated for 500W, this high-power device is well suited for monitoring antenna and cable faults within communication systems that often go undetected by transmitter-internal VSWR monitors.
The ACM500 serves the role of power monitoring on combined systems with power levels up to 500W. Like the standard ACM units, the ACM500’s standalone capability and alarm outputs make it appropriate for constant monitoring of power and VSWR at all critical points in the transmission system. By using a true average power measurement, the ACM series will work in any system, regardless of modulation or number of carriers.
