Z-Communications, Inc. is Proud to Announce a New Line of Waveguide-to-Coax Adapters and Precision Low Powered
Waveguide Termination Products
San Diego, CA, September 24, 2010 --
Inc. (Poway, CA) the leader in Voltage Controlled Oscillator and Phase Lock Loop technology is pleased to announce
its latest in innovative product development with a new line of waveguide solutions. The waveguide product line
provides the microwave industry a new high performance, low cost choice when selecting top of the line precision
waveguides for their equipment needs. Z-Communications waveguide products feature a complete list of full-band
waveguide-to-coax-adapters along with precision low powered waveguide terminations covering 5 GHz to 40 GHz. Both
are sure to make a significant impact in the waveguide marketplace due to their uncompromised performance at an
are readily available in rectangular waveguide sizes ranging from WR137 to WR28.
Z-Communications unique mechanical design structure utilized in its adapter series provides full-band impedance
matching with remarkably low reflection coefficients and minimal insertion loss. This is sure to save engineering
time and money from needlessly procuring extra adapters due to its superior performance across the entire band.
The VSWR for the waveguide adapters and terminations are better than 1.20 and 1.02, respectively. In addition to
the attributes previously mentioned, these compact sized adapters are further enhanced due to its simple structure
requiring no extra matching or tuning element reducing the chance of arcing when used in high power applications.
Furthermore to the standalone performance of the adapters series, the waveguide terminations provide capable power
handling of 0.5W for the WR28 covering 26.4-40.1 GHz to 2.0W for the WR137 over the frequency range of 5.38-8.17
Z-Communications complete line of off-the-shelf waveguide-to-coax adapters and terminations come in
highly precisioned machined aluminum with either SMA or 2.92mm female connectors. They come in the industry
standard square cover flange for all rectangular waveguides except for the WR137 which is available in the
standard CPR flange. For ordering information or looking to inquire about other flange and connector types please
