Schomandl’s FIT-70 Wattmeter: Fast and Handy
This product has been replaced by the RF ONE Power Meter.
Schomandl manufactures a series of meters it calls “fast installation testers,” or FIT for short. The FIT-70 RF wattmeter addresses the RF industry’s need to check wattages and forward and reflected power at remote antenna sites and STLs. As advertised, the FIT-70 is a fast, easy-to-use and easy-to-read tester. Its main unit measures 8 inches by 4 inches by less than 2 inches thick. Its cord-linked test head is half that size and handier for connecting to cable in hard-to-reach situations than are other manufacturers’ bulky box units.
The FIT-70’s measurement range is 70 MHz to 1000 MHz and the head now goes up to 100 watts. That covers mobile radio networks, FM radio, and UHF and VHF television signals. It also features a DC voltmeter that stores low and high readings and an ohmmeter to measure resistance. The watt meter’s manufacturer, Schomandl, is a subsidiary of German RF manufacturer Kathrein Group. LBA Technology exclusively distributes Kathrein/Schomandl RF test instruments in the western hemisphere. Learn More About the FIT-70 Here!
