High power attenuators with range of frequency coverage
Pasternack has launched a new line of ten, 25, 50 and 100 Watt RF attenuators with operating frequencies up to 18GHz depending on the configuration. Pasternack now offers 31 high power, fixed attenuators which offer attenuation levels of three, six, ten, 20, 30 and 40dB. Additionally, in-series connector gender interfaces are available in male-female configurations with both SMA and Type-N connector options.
These new fixed RF attenuators boast power ratings of ten, 25, 50 or 100W and a peak power rating of 500W. The ten and 25W versions feature bi-directional operation, while the 50 and 100W models support directional operation. Additional features include VSWR as low as 1.2:1, flat RF response and performance, and an RFI-resistant design.
The attenuators are constructed with black anodised aluminium heatsink bodies and are designed with large cooling fins which aid in heat dissipation at high temperatures.
“These new high power RF attenuators are perfect for power limiting in both production and R&D applications, impedance matching, and signal levelling inside RF test systems. By offering a wide selection of off-the-shelf options, we are able to satisfy nearly every RF attenuation application,” said Steven Pong, Product Line Manager.
Pasternack’s new high power RF attenuators are in-stock and available for same-day shipping with no minimum order requirement.
