Well seems even zetagi have issues
To be honest I don't think Zetagi were well known for build quality . Saying that , they made a lot of reasonably priced accessories , and their support team are still around today to help . They sent me a switch for my BV135 free-of-charge , so I've no complains :)

I purchased a zetagi power reducer this week. Set it up to test if it was reasonably accurate both on its 1/4 &1/2 power switch position settings.

Well seems even zetagi have issues, with the switch in half power reduction it was reducing by 1/4 ,& in 1/4 power reducing position it was half lol.

Emailed the seller they said could return it but will work same as it is.

Made my own label ,crude as it is .
Couldn't a couple of wires be swapped around inside?

Theirs not much room inside ,it's soldered to a board .
Yes I'm confident someone with good iron skill could remove switch n turn it it I'm not that guy .

Not yet anyway.

It's not very clever though is it , New equipment wired switch backwards as such. Good job I test stuff to see what's what before I dump too much power into a linear.
