Super Low Insertion Loss High Power Waveguide Filters
The WZ-Series bandpass filters are narrowband (< 2 percent BW) filters designed with very sharp rejection slopes while maintaining low insertion loss and very high-power handling (kW range). Popular uses are at the output of a high-power amplifier or at the input of a receiver for low noise figure. WZ-Series are available as filters or as multiplexers.

Response Microwave Inc.
RLC Electronics’ multiplexers are available in 2, 3 or 4 channel versions. Adjacent passbands may be designed for a contiguous or non-contiguous response. For passband frequencies below 2 GHz, lumped element designs will often achieve the desired response in the smallest package. At higher frequencies (up to 40 GHz), distributed coaxial structures are employed to realize the lowest possible loss. The unit pictured is a diplexer that covers both L-/S-Band frequencies, as well as Ku frequencies, and exhibits low loss (< 0.5 dB per channel).
Broadband Bandpass Filter
Spacek Labs Fc2-625-9 is a WR-15 broadband bandpass filter. This series is offered from 18 to 110 GHz with bandwidths from 30 to 100 percent of the band. These waveguide filters combine its exceptional performance lowpass filter and highpass filter technologies. Model Fc2-625-9 has a passband from 48 to 72 GHz. Lower and upper 20 dB rejection is 45 and 74 GHz respectively, rejecting > 30 dB out to 110 GHz. Insertion loss is 1 dB typ., 2 dB max.
