CAA-500 Mark II

Standing Wave Analyser

1.8 - 500MHz

SWR & Impedance simultaneously 



  • Built-in broadband high-stability transmitter for easy measurement of resonant frequency, SWR, and impedance.
  • Colour LCD & Cross-needle meter display provide SWR and impedance information simultaneously. 
  •   Seperate ham band segments can be swept to display the SWR characteristics in the graph automatically. Moreover, it is possible to plot the SWR characteristics manually with user-defined centre frequency and sweep bandwidth.
  • Size AA alkaline (manganese) or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries (six required) may be used. Typical battery life is 9 hours of continuous operation when using AA cells.
  • External 8-16V DC power may be used to power the meter; this allows trickle charging of Ni-MH cells.
  • The programmable Auto Power Off function preserves battery capacity in case you forget to turn the meter off. 
  • A hand strap post is provided, for ease of use and to minimise the chance of dropping the CAA-500.
