Abstract: An electronic instrument module for detecting and measuring the forward and reflected RF voltage wave signals on a coaxial transmission line. The instrument is integral with a coaxial line section adapted to be electrically inserted in a tubular transmission line, the line section having an elongated conductive metal body with a central cylindrical opening with a coaxial center conductor therein electrically insulated from the metal body. The metal body also has a transverse opening communicating with the central cylindrical opening and adapted to receive an inductive pick-up coil mounted on the body for rotation in the opening about an axis normal to the axis of the line section. The pick-up coil is responsive to the voltage wave signal on the transmission line. Also, mounted on the metal body are a D'Arsonval meter movement and circuit means connecting the pick-up coil to the meter movement so that the meter provides an indication of the level of either the forward voltage wave signal or the reflected voltage wave signal depending on the orientation of the inductive pick-up coil.

First Claim:
Show all 2 claims
I claim:     1. In an instrument for detecting and measuring directional RF voltage wave signals on a coaxial transmission line, said instrument including a coaxial line section adapted to be inserted in said transmission line and having a tubular conductive metal body with a central axis and a transverse opening, and a coaxial center conductor extending axially through said body and electrically insulated therefrom, an inductive pick-up coil located in said opening and adapted for rotation about an axis normal to the axis of said metal body for sensing and measuring the RF voltage wave on said transmission line, D'Arsonval meter movement means for indicating on a meter scale the magnitude of said voltage wave on said transmission line, circuit means operatively connected between said meter movement means and said inductive pick-up coil for translating said inductive voltage sensed by said pick-up coil into a voltage signal transmitted to said meter movement means and an enclosure for said instrument, the improvement wherein said tubular conductive metal body is of rectangular cross section and is formed of a solid length of conductive metal with an axial bore extending therethrough and wherein said D'Arsonval meter movement means, said circuit means and said enclosure are all mounted on and supported solely by said conductive metal body whereby said line section alone serves as the base and support for said entire instrument independently of said enclosure.
