The 7020 Sensor has a broadband frequency performance from 350 MHz to 4.0 GHz and measures power levels up to 150W. It determines and reports Forward and Reflected True Average Power and VSWR.The 7020 Series sensor will operate with the following display devices: Site Analyzer (XT Versions only), VPM2, and the 5000-XT.

The advantages of this unit is that it can measure forward and reflected power and VSWR with no field calibration required
