RF Power Testing Redefined!

Next generation display for power measurement with automatic sensor detection.


Bird’s new 5000-NG RF Power Meter Display transforms the way you perform RF power meter testing. A giant leap forward, this hand-held portable meter captures, collects, and displays RF power measurements on a touch screen, high-resolution display, allowing you to review quickly and easily data in the field or in an R & D lab environment.

Operating over a broad frequency range using one of Bird’s USB RF power sensors, the 5000-NG allows you to quickly measure True Average Power, VSWR, Return Loss, and more.

This fully digital power meter automatically detects the sensor in use and saves session information. Take RF power measurements, enable smoothing level for more stable readings, or max hold to detect the maximum power.

Bird's new portable lightweight tablet features a large, sunlight-readable colour touch screen. This easy-to-use, intuitive interface saves time and ensures a fast learning curve for technicians.

(The 5000-NG RF Power Meter Display replaces the 5000-XT Digital Power Meter)
