Pasternack Flexible Waveguide Sections Solve Alignment Issues in Rigid and Fixed Waveguide Systems
Irvine, CA - Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, expands their waveguide product portfolio with
the addition of new flexible waveguides
that operate up to 40 GHz over nine frequency bands. This offering consists of 36 unique models of flexible waveguide twists ranging in size
from WR-137 (as low as 5.85 GHz) to WR-28 (up to 40 GHz).
Pasternack's flexible/twistable waveguides, also referred to as a "flexguide," utilize helically wound silver coated brass strips surrounded
by a flexible and twistable, yet durable, neoprene sleeve. The ends of the waveguide are terminated with brass flanges available in nine waveguide
sizes and multiple flange styles. Typical VSWR for these flexible waveguides ranges from 1.05:1 up to 1.35:1 depending on waveguide size and
frequency. Insertion loss performance is similar with typical levels as low as 0.07 dB. These waveguides will flex in both the E and H planes
and can also twist. Flanges in lower frequency versions are available in both UG and CPR styles.
The new flexible
waveguides sections from Pasternack act as a malleable conduit in waveguide systems where there is not perfect alignment for a traditional
rigid waveguide section. Often an ideal solution for test labs or prototyping, these flexible waveguides can easily be flexed and twisted to
conform to various misalignments in waveguide systems. These flexible waveguide twists can be ordered in standard lengths including 12, 24 and
36 inches with same-day shipping.
"Our new family of flexible waveguide components provides designers and engineers an in-stock source of flexible/twistable waveguide solutions
for their applications up to 40 GHz," explains Mark Blackwood, Passive Components Product Manager at Pasternack. "Pasternack's rapidly expanding
ready-to-ship waveguide family is the largest in the industry and provides customers a comprehensive suite of waveguide solutions."
The new flexible waveguide
twists from Pasternack are in-stock and ready to ship now.
