Tegam Takes a Walk on the Wide Side
GENEVA, OH - While the rest of the world is resolving to be slimmer, one company has no qualms about starting the New Year off wide. TEGAM, Inc. has broken the mold with its latest innovation, the Model 1827 Wideband RF Power Sensor Calibrator, which has the widest frequency range of any commercially available product of its kind. This breakthrough product calibrates within the broad frequency range of 100 kHz to 18 GHz using only one standard. Previously, Calibration Systems required two standards to achieve this frequency range, and annual calibration costs were thousands more.
The 1827's distinctive features range almost as widely as its frequency. This revolutionary product has the capacity to calibrate most popular power sensors in 30 minutes or less, at half the cost of TEGAM's comparable product, the automated System IIA. The 1827 has two switchable RF inputs, with all connectors located on the front panel for easy access. The product's internal Thermistor RF Transfer Standard is temperature controlled, so changes in ambient temperature do not affect power measurements. DC power levels can be measured to within ±0.003%.
This landmark product from TEGAM has further expanded TEGAM's low-cost RF sensor calibrator product line. The 1827 is incredibly simple to operate, and it includes Microsoft Excel spreadsheets containing the formulas necessary to calculate calibration factors. The product is compact and cost-effective, with U.S. pricing starting at $16,995. Ideal for labs with annual calibration workloads of 40 RF sensors or less, users could also integrate the 1827 into automated workstations by using a GPIB equipped DVM.
"Eighty percent of the RF Power Sensor workload for most labs is covered by this calibrator," notes Terry Gambill, president of TEGAM, Inc., "at a price that smaller labs can afford."
