RF Terminations and Loads
WHAT IS A LOAD?
RF Loads come in various shapes and sizes and provide one purpose - convert electrical energy into a form of energy that can be dissipated efficently, economically, and safely. The purpose of a load or termination (also known as a "dummy load") is to absorb RF energy and turn it into heat. Many times, the load takes the place of an antenna during transmitter testing.
Bird manufactures a broad spectrum of devices from one watt to eighty kilowatts. Our restrictive product portfolio includes air-cooled, water-cooled, oil-dielectric, convection cooled, and conduction cooled RF terminations and loads.
