Couplers

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

KRYTAR’s model 101065016 directional couplers offer the ultimate solution for emerging designs and test and measurement applications including mmWave and 5G.

Krytar coaxial Dual-Directional Couplers are 4-port couplers that are the combination of two 3-port couplers having their main lines cascaded. This design lets you monitor forward and reflected power.

The OLH2047, OLH2048, and OLH2049 are dual-channel, hermetic 8-pin DIP optocouplers designed especially for high reliability applications that require optical isolation with high CTR and low saturation VCE.

The MCT4 and MCT4R products are designed especially for high-reliability applications that require optical isolation with high Current Transfer Ratio (CTR) and low saturation VCE. Each optocoupler consists of an LED and N-P-N silicon photo-transistor that is mounted and optically coupled in a four-leaded hermetic TO–18 package.

The C10-1200WG is a WR12 10dB waveguide coupler featuring high directivity over a 60-90GHz operational bandwidth built with high precision and then gold plated for high corrosion resistance. 

KRYTAR’s directional couplers are uniquely designed for systems applications where external leveling, precise monitoring, signal mixing, or swept transmission and reflection measurements are required.

The C10-0667 stripline directional couplers use proprietary circuit design to offer higher directivity than competing stripline couplers across a broad bandwidth. 

ABOUT

In electrical circuits, there are three basic types of coupling for electricity. There is restive coupling, hard wire coupling, and natural conductor coupling. These couplings have different advantages and different uses in electricity and electromagnetic uses. Specific to electromagnetic coupling in the induction field is the electro dynamic coupler, the electrostatic coupler, and wave coupling. Couplings used in electromagnetic situations differ with the type of electromagnetic environment. If it’s radiation, then radio couplings are used as well as microwave couplings.

The use of couplings in electrical circuits is something that has been stable for a very long time. They are used to connect to functional circuits for the purpose of tying their energy together or to form a bridge in an effort to share the energy source. The noun comes from the railway industry where two carriages are said to be coupled by a coupling so that they may share the engine pull. In this case the transfer of energy is in series where the engine pulls the first car; the first car is coupled to the second car and is pulled by the first and so on down the line until it gets to the brake van. Coupling is the simple concept of sharing energy, just like in the train example.

In the use of electromagnetic couplers, they are more than likely to be shielded so that no magnetic force is leaked and that it is made from conductive elements inside and resistive materials on the outside in addition to their shielding. Coupling technology has been advancing over the last decade where couplings have been brought successfully into the optical industry for fiber optic coupling as well as the nanotechnology industry for particle coupling.
