“The Tomco TE1000 represents the most cost effective RF Vector Voltmeter available today for sub-UHF applications, with the accuracy and features of units that cost five times as much,” said Lawrence Behr, CEO of LBA. “This impedance measurement system is an excellent fit with the needs of customers already using LBA radio frequency products and services.”

The TE1000 measures vector impedance, VSWR, return loss and more, in one lightweight, battery-powered package. The package also includes Windows software which enables a wide array of additional swept data capture, display, and control options when used with a laptop computer. Typical applications include AM/FM broadcasting, communications systems, precise cable fabrication, on-board testing, and research.

In addition, LBA will offer Tomco’s line of high performance RF amplifiers. These broadband amplifiers are available in a range of frequency bands from 40 kHz to 500 MHz, and peak power levels ranging from 50 watts to 8 kW. Tomco’s RF amplifiers are extremely stable and rugged, and are suited to a wide variety of applications. These include transmitters, EMI test sources, magnetic resonance, pulsed radar and RF heating.

For more than 30 years LBA Technology, Inc., a unit of the LBA Group, has been designing and manufacturing sophisticated antenna tuning and coupling systems for commercial and government users throughout the world. LBA systems operate in the low, medium and high frequency radio bands at power levels from 1000 to over 100,000 watts. LBA also makes flexible and transportable transmitting stations from man-pack to C-130 flyaway configurations. LBA facilities are located in Greenville, NC and Corona, CA.

Tomco was founded in 1986 as an RF engineering business that today supplies a broad range of RF hardware in the LF to UHF frequency ranges into scientific, commercial, and industrial markets worldwide. Tomco is based near Adelaide, Australia.
