Output power set – increments and decrements in 5W steps.
Reflection power trip set – if a process requires the microwave power to be disabled when a certain reflected power level is detected, this function will allow that trip value to be set. This function increments and decrements in 1W steps.
Timer set – the system has the option of being used in continuous or [timer] mode. When used in [TIMER] mode, the time can be set up to 99 minutes. When the microwave power is enabled, the timer function will decrement in 1 second steps and disable the microwave power when the timer reaches zero.
All information is displayed on a high contrast white LED display during set mode.
[RF ON] – enables and disables microwave power.
[SWEPT] – when used in standalone mode, this mode allows an improved accuracy measurement of real-time reflected power to be made and displayed.
[TIMER] – when the user requires to have power automatically disabled after a predetermined test duration.
[EXTERNAL SOURCE] – for use with users own signal generator via SMA female connector on the rear panel.
[EXTERNAL I/O] – When data logging or specialised control is required. Parallel interfacing capability is supplied as standard with USB control easily achievable using the external USB interface module. This mode of operation allows the user to fully control the system including the output power through a time or reflection dependent power profile to get a unique power characteristic response.
[RESET] – resets the system back to the power-on values.
With [RF ON] enabled, the system displays the real-time measurement of both the output and reflected power. Warning LED’s and audible alarms are included in the ISYS245+ as standard.
