The Bird 8860 Semiconductor Load is a portable 50 ohm coaxial RF transmission line termination. It is designed for frequency ranges of DC – 28 MHz, specially calibrated for greater stability at 13.56 MHz. It provides accurate, dependable, and low reflection line terminations. Up to 1000 watts of RF power can be dissipated.
The load has a coolant chamber surrounded by radiator fins. The front and rear fins form mounting flanges which can be used as supports for freestanding use or as brackets for fixed mounting. A vent plug at the top of the unit relieves internal pressure from coolant expansion. The load’s simple and rugged design minimizes maintenance requirements.
