The Palstar PM2000A wattmeter measures and displays forward power up to 2000 Watts, reflected power, and SWR simultaneously on its dual movement meter system in the frequency range of 1.8 MHz to 60 MHz. Accuracy of the readings is assured because the PM2000A features a true shielded directional coupler.
The backlit meter can display either peak or average power readings with a Peak Hold function, and has 300 and 2000 watt range settings.
When QST tested the PM2000A's predecessor, the Palstar WM150, they found it to be the only wattmeter with true Active Peak Reading. The PM2000A is the next generation of Wattmeters from Palstar.
All of the features of the WM150 are integrated into the PM2000A but with increased power capability up to 2kW and featuring a 2 second Peak Hold function. Just like on Palstar tuners, the PM2000A has an 11 Ga. (.090") iridite-treated aluminum case with powder coated front panel and top cover.
