A truly unique and innovative design. We didn't just stick a digital
display on an old fashioned design. Compare
to any meter at any price! There is
nothing else like the LP-100A on the market. Please
take the time to read
this entire page (and links, including the extensive manual) for a
of features and performance
data of this station monitoring and antenna measurement system.
graphic VFD display used in the LP-100A is the highest quality display
used in a digital wattmeter. It is manufactured in Japan by Noritake,
inventor of VFD, at their own facilities... not in China. In 10
years of production
of the LP-100A, we have not had a single display failure, or even a
report of wear. The quality and reliability of the display, combined
with unique screen saver options, adds up to a lifetime of enjoyment.
think you'll agree... the LP-100A is in a class by itself.
* Display note for
LP-100 (not "A") owners: We
have an inexpensive upgrade path to the LP-100A GVFD display (which
includes LP-100A firmware and features) for owners of the original
LP-100. In addition, we offer a very inexpensive OLED display
for original LP-100 owners who have experienced failure of their PLED
display. The new OLED display can be ordered in green or yellow and
is a drop-in replacement. It offers a quick and inexpensive
way for owners of the original LP-100 to extend the life of the meter
indefinitely, without changing the look or feel of the meter.
coupler is LPC1, 3KW PEP/CW**, 1.8 to 54 MHz.
couplers for ham use include...
LPC2 0.10W to 5KW CCS*, 1.8 to 30 MHz
LPC4 0.10W to 5KW PEP/CW**, 1.8 to 54 MHz 3KW PEP on 6 meters)
LPC5 0.20W to 10KW PEP/CW**, 1.8 to 30 MHz
CCS refers to continuous duty (key down).
** PEP/CW refers to 50% duty cycle typical of most ham modes.
Note: Allow up to a week delay for orders with optional couplers.
standard configuration includes LPC1 coupler, 6' RF cables to connect
the coupler to the meter, 6' DC power cord (2.5mm ID / 5.5mm OD
connector, with tinned ends) to connect to 12VDC source with 500 mA
current rating. This can be your station power supply, rig 12VDC
accessory jack, "RigRunner" type DC power distribution panel or
dedicated power supply. A suitable wall mount DC supply can be used if
it is "clean". A relativelt inexpensive unit that we tested and found
to be pretty clean is the Triad # WSU120-1000-13
(DigiKey part # 237-2225-ND, $8.93). It has an AC plug for US outlets
the correct DC output connector to plug directly into the meter.
July 1, 2018: LP-100A is in stock, but due to continued high demand for this product and our other wattmeters, please allow a week or so for shipment of new orders, especially orders with optional couplers or the dual coupler option.
Includes standard LPC1 coupler (1.8 to54 MHz, 3KW), 6 ft.
cables between coupler and main unit, and power cable with tinned ends
for connection to +12VDC. Also includes VCP, Plot and
software, 11 band NIST calibration and unlimited support of all
software and firmware.
available for LP-100A:
* High power couplers: Upgrade new or existing LPC1 to LPC2, LPC4 or LPC5... $75.
* Dual coupler board: $85 installed. Note: This board is also available as a kit or assembled PCB for existing owners of LP-100A (not available for LP-100). Requires factory or user recalibration aftrer installation.
* Additional couplers: LPC1, $125. LPC2, LPC4 or LPC5... $200.
* N connectors: $25 per coupler.
* Longer cables between coupler and meter: $1 for each foot of length over 6 feet (must be ordered with new meter since cable length affects calibration).
