Waveguide direct-read attenuators cover 18 to 110 GHz

Dec. 22, 2016

Irvine, CA. Pasternack, a provider of RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave products, has released a new line of waveguide direct-read attenuators for instrumentation, test benches, high-efficiency RF/microwave transmissions, and SATCOM, MILCOM, radar, and telecom applications.

Pasternack’s direct-read attenuators are available in WR-42 to WR-10 waveguide standards operating in seven waveguide bands within the 18-GHz to 110-GHz frequency range. They boast ±2% typical attenuation accuracy and feature an easy-to-read drum scale and military-standard UG-style flanges. Minimum attenuation range is 0 dB to 50 dB with an insertion loss of 0.5 dB to 1 dB depending on the frequency range.

These direct-read waveguide attenuators can be used in many industries including aerospace, defense, industrial, telecom, instrumentation, and medical. They are built from quality construction materials and ensure consistent performance.

“Sometimes you need an accurate variable attenuator that is simple to use. These variable attenuators offer excellent accuracy and setting the needed attenuation is as easy as a twist of a knob to the value indicated by the dial. There is no need to build look-up tables as with other variable attenuators. This line of direct read attenuators is an excellent addition to our line of waveguide products,” said Mark Blackwood, passive components product manager at Pasternack.

Pasternack’s waveguide direct read attenuators are in-stock and ready for immediate shipment.
