These multi-purpose, stripline designed directional couplers operate over the 2.0 to 40.0 GHz frequency range and are ideal for broadband electronic warfare (EW) systems, and commercial wireless systems. More specifically, these couplers are designed to provide solutions in signal monitoring, antenna beam forming, cable distributed systems, and military/EMC environments.
Two different models of directional couplers are available. Model 102040020 is available with 2.4-mm SMA female connectors, and Model 102040020K comes with 2.92-mm SMA female connectors. Both feature a very compact package size (1.75 inches (L) x 0.40 inches (W) x 0.65 inches (H), making these directional couplers ideal for space-restricted applications.
KRYTAR’s superior design has extended the frequency range of these couplers from 2.0 to 40.0 GHz with Nominal Coupling (with respect to output) of 10 dB, ±1.0 dB and Frequency Sensitivity of ±0.7 dB. Directivity specifications are >15 dB (2.0 to 20.0 GHz) and >11 dB (20.0 to 40.0 GHz). The directional couplers exhibit Insertion Loss (including coupled power) of less than 1.2 dB (2.0 to 20.0 GHz) and less than 1.8 dB (20.0 to 40.0 GHz). Maximum VSWR (any port) is 1.5 (2.0 to 20.0 GHz) and 1.7 (20.0 to 40.0 GHz), Input Power Rating for both designs is 20 W average and 3 kW peak.
