Fairview Microwave Inc. has introduced a new line of attenuators for quick mating and easy installation. Typical applications include remote radio heads (RRH), DAS systems, base stations and antennas.
Fairview’s new line of quick connect attenuators is made up of 31 models that support operating frequency ranges from DC to 6 GHz. These attenuators are available with QMA, QN or 4.3 to 10 connectors for easy mating. They feature VSWR as low as 1.15:1 and attenuation values from 0 to 20 dB. The 4.3 to 10 attenuator models deliver low-PIM performance and have power handling up to 15 W maximum.
These quick connect attenuators increase installation flexibility with an easy, screw-on design that allows for hand-tightening and eliminates the need for wrench or torque for coupling. The 4.3 to 10 attenuators are made of anodized aluminum. The QMA and QN models are constructed of brass tri-metal. These attenuators are ideal for telecommunication, industrial, defense and aerospace industries.
“The attenuators in this new product line are quick to connect, reduce installation time and boast enhanced electrical performance. They are the perfect addition to our extensive line of RF fixed attenuators. All 31 models are available off-the-shelf with same day shipping,” said Steven Pong, product manager.
Fairview’s new quick connect attenuators are in stock and ready for immediate shipment with no minimum order quantity.
