Waveguide bends support frequencies up to 90GHz
A line of waveguide bends operating from 5.85-90GHz across 12 frequency bands (from C band to W band) has been launched by Fairview Microwave. These waveguide bends are frequently used in applications such as high efficiency RF, test benches, instrumentation, microwave and mm-wave transmissions, MILCOM, SATCOM, radar and telecom.
Precision waveguide bends are used to protect the strength of the transmission signal in waveguide systems that require a signal to turn or bend 90 degrees. These waveguide bends boast low-loss and VSWR as low as 1.08:1 and are available in both E-plane and H-plane configurations. They are constructed with gold plated, Oxygen-Free Hard Copper (OFHC) or painted copper alloy, depending on the model. The bends are also offered with either a CPR-style flange or a UG-style flange per the military standard.
Fairview’s extensive lines of waveguide bends consist of 30 models offered from stock. Sizes range from WR-137 (5.85GHz) to WR-12 (90GHz) and most models are RoHS compliant.
“To meet the urgent needs of our customers, we are pleased to offer a full range of ready-to-ship waveguide bends over 12 bands from C to W frequencies in both H and E plane configurations. These waveguide products complement our rapidly expanding portfolio of waveguide components,” said Brian McCutcheon, Vice President and General Manager at Fairview Microwave.
