ERI Introduces Compact Liquid Cooled RF Loads

Chandler, Indiana USA – April 3, 2018 – Electronics Research is launching a new series of liquid cooled RF loads at NABSHOW2018. This new family of liquid cooled UHF coaxial loads offer a proven design for handling high RF power at low cost. Models are available with 3-1/8-inch, 4-1/16-inch, and 6-1/8-inch swivel flange female inputs. The loads employ a solution of antifreeze and water as both coolant and resistive material. The power dissipated by the load heats the solution and is removed by the constant flow. These new RF loads are less than 45-inches in length to save space and are constructed from Aluminum and Stainless Steel and weigh less than 22 pounds. The Models CL311, 3-1/8-inch; CL411, 4-1/16-inch; and CL611, 6-1/8-inch are the basic load designs. The Models CL312, CL412, and CL612 include an integrated, externally terminated and adjustable directional coupler at the load input.

These new products are currently in production and availability for new orders is generally less than 30 days.
