Pasternack Enterprises, Inc., an industry leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, releases a new family of high frequency, WR-15 waveguide antennas, which are perfectly designed for high-bandwidth applications including point-to-point links, GigE wireless LAN, millimeter radiometry, uncompressed HD video, FMCW radar, millimeter scintillometry, campus networks and multi-gigabit wireless communications.
Offered in this release are four high gain WR-15 horn antennas operating between 50 and 70 GHz that are available in 20, 24, 34 and 42 dBi gain models. Pasternack’s WR-15 waveguide horn antennas pairs seamlessly with the recently added 60 GHz transmit/receive development system (PEM003-KIT) which enables companies to experiment and develop applications in the globally-unlicensed 60 GHz frequency band. Using two of Pasternack’s WR-15 beam antennas rated to 42 dBi gain (PE9881-42), a user is able to transmit and receive a 60 GHz signal at a distance of one kilometer (km), making these antennas an ideal solution for high frequency point-to-point backhaul.
Also available in this new release is Pasternack’s new omni-directional millimeter wave antenna (PE-W15A001), a vertically polarized WR-15 waveguide connected antenna using a standard UG387/U flange that operates between 58 and 63 GHz. This omni-directional millimeter wave antenna has a 30 degree vertical beam width and a 360 degree horizontal gain variation, making it ideal for short range wireless communications, indoor networks, high frequency applications and 60 GHz development systems. The millimeter wave omni-directional antenna is constructed with a durable brass waveguide input and light-weight aluminum body.
“The addition of these 60 GHz WR-15 antennas is a great complement to our growing lines of millimeter wave products that help address the emerging markets around 60 GHz technology”, says Gerry Camacho, vice president of technical marketing at Pasternack.
The new millimeter wave antennas with a WR-15 waveguide flange as well as the 60 GHz transmit/receive development system are in-stock and available to ship from Pasternack now.
