Broadcast Power Monitors

Bird RF Power Monitors that continually monitor VSWR and RF Power

The Bird BPME Series, Broadcast Power Monitors, accurately monitor RF power and VSWR continuously in addition to providing the ability to set alarms for important power and VSWR thresholds and enable data logging for a wide range of frequencies and power levels.

The 3129 Digital Display by Bird is a remote monitor panel that displays the status of the BPME, Broadcast RF Power Monitor and provides power to the BPME electronics.
