Waveguide bends operate up to 90GHz across 12 bands

Article By : Pasternack

In waveguide systems that require a signal to turn or bend 90 degrees, precision waveguide bends are used as to not degrade the transmission signal.

Pasternack’s new lines of waveguide bends operates from 5.85 to 90GHz across 12 frequency bands (from C band to W band). These waveguide bends are commonly used in applications such as instrumentation, test benches, high efficiency RF, microwave and mm-wave transmissions, SATCOM, MILCOM, radar and telecom, according to the company.

In waveguide systems that require a signal to turn or bend 90 degrees, precision waveguide bends are used as to not degrade the transmission signal. Pasternack’s broad portfolio of in-stock and ready-to-ship waveguide bends boast low loss and VSWR as low as 1.08:1 and are available in both E-plane and H-plane configurations. These 90-degree waveguide bends are constructed using gold plated, oxygen free hard copper (OFHC) or painted copper alloy depending on the model. The bends are also offered with either a UG-style flange per the military standard or a CPR-style flange.

In this portfolio, there are currently 30 unique models of waveguide bends offered from stock at Pasternack. Sizes range from WR-137 (5.85GHz) to WR-12 (90GHz). Most models are RoHS compliant.

The new waveguide bends from Pasternack are in-stock and ready to ship.
