Pasternack has introduced a new line of cross guide waveguide couplers with four port, three port and two port with coax interface that work across C- to K-Bands. Typical applications include instrumentation, test benches, product development and characterization.
Pasternack’s new line of cross guide couplers consists of 160 parts in three sub-categories: cross guide couplers (four waveguide ports), cross guide couplers with terminations (three waveguide ports) and cross guide couplers with terminations and waveguide to coax adapters (two waveguide ports with either a SMA, type-N or 2.92 mm coaxial connection). These couplers operate over eight waveguide bands in the 5.85 to 33 GHz frequency range. They are made with bronze waveguide bodies and are offered with EIA (CPR)-style flanges or UG-style flanges per military standard. These cross guide couplers are available with coupling factors from 20 to 50 dB.
“This family of cross guide couplers is offered in three different configurations: the coupler itself, the coupler preassembled with a termination or with a termination and a coaxial connection. Ordering these couplers couldn’t be easier, they come preassembled out of the box and, as with all of our products, they can be shipped the same day they are ordered,” said Mark Blackwood, product manager.
Pasternack’s new cross guide couplers are in stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity.
