Directional couplers for a range of signal sampling applications
Displaying performance up to 33GHz, the new family of waveguide directional couplers from Pasternack are commonly used for signal sampling and other general purpose applications in wireless transmit/receive systems, satellite communications, radar systems, point-to-point backhaul and telecom.
Pasternack’s latest release of waveguide directional couplers consists of 74 models spanning a frequency range of 5.85-33GHz across eight frequency bands. The couplers are offered in two physical configurations including ‘Crossguide’ and ‘Broadwall’ versions and come with either UG-style or CPR-style flanges.
The couplers are offered in various waveguide sizes from WR-137 to WR-34 and are offered in 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50dB coupling levels with full waveguide operational bandwidth. These waveguide couplers also include low insertion loss and typical VSWR of 1.05:1. These couplers are constructed using rugged copper alloy.
“Pasternack’s rapidly growing portfolio of waveguide components is purposely designed to meet the increasing demands of the industry across a broad range of frequencies,” said Mark Blackwood, Passive Components Product Manager at Pasternack. “This selection of couplers adds a full complement of mid and lower frequency couplers to our already existing lines of high frequency waveguide couplers.”
