Fairview’s Waveguide Bends support frequencies up to 90GHz
Fairview Microwave, a supplier of on-demand microwave and radio frequency (RF) components, launched a new line of waveguide bends operating 5.85-90GHz across 12 frequency bands (from C- to W-band). These waveguide bends are frequently used in applications such as high efficiency RF, test benches, instrumentation, microwave and millimetre-wave transmissions, MILCOM, SATCOM, radar and telecom.
Precision waveguide bends are used to protect the strength of the transmission signal in waveguide systems that require a signal to turn or bend 90 degrees. These waveguide bends boast low-loss and VSWR as low as 1.08:1 and are available in both E-plane and H-plane configurations. They are constructed with gold plated, oxygen-free hard copper (OFHC) or painted copper alloy, depending on the model. The bends are also offered with either a CPR-style flange or a UG-style flange per the military standard.
“To meet the urgent needs of our customers, we are pleased to offer a full range of ready-to-ship waveguide bends over 12 bands from C to W frequencies in both H and E plane configurations. These new waveguide products perfectly complement our rapidly expanding portfolio of waveguide components,” said Brian McCutcheon, Vice President and General Manager at Fairview Microwave.
