New Direct Read Attenuators from Pasternack Allow Precise and Repeatable Millimeter Wave Measurements
Irvine, California - Pasternack, a leading 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, SATCOM, MILCOM, radar and telecom applications.
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. For
