LBA Group to Distribute TOMCO Impedance Analyzer in North, South America
GREENVILLE, NC – April 12, 2005 — LBA Group, Inc. (LBA) today announced the signing of an exclusive distribution agreement for North and South America between its subsidiary LBA Technology, Inc. and Tomco Technologies (Tomco) of Norwood, Australia. The agreement includes Tomco’s TE1000 line of RF Vector Impedance Analyzers as well as access to its lines of high power amplifiers and transmitters.
“The Tomco TE1000 represents the most cost effective RF Vector Voltmeter available today for sub-UHF applications, with accuracy and features of units costing five times more,” said Lawrence Behr, CEO of LBA. “This impedance measurement system is an excellent fit with the needs of customers already using LBA radio frequency products and services.”
The TE1000 measures vector impedance, VSWR, return loss and more in a lightweight, battery powered package. Included Windows software enables an array of additional swept data capture, display, and control options when used with a laptop computer. Typical applications include AM/FM broadcasting, communications systems, precise cable fabrication, on-board testing, and research.
In addition to the test equipment, LBA will offer Tomco’s line of high performance RF amplifiers. These broadband amplifiers are available in a range of frequency bands from 40 kHz to 500 MHz, and a range of peak power levels from 50 watts to 8 kW. They are extremely stable and rugged, and are suited to a wide variety of applications. These include transmitters, EMI test sources, magnetic resonance, pulsed radar and RF heating.
For more than 30 years LBA Technology, Inc., a unit of the LBA Group, has been designing and manufacturing sophisticated antenna tuning and coupling systems for commercial and government users throughout the world. LBA systems operate in the low, medium and high frequency radio bands at power levels from 1000 to over 100,000 watts. It also makes flexible transportable transmitting stations from man-pack to C-130 flyaway configurations. LBA Technology facilities are located in Greenville, NC.
