Waveguide bends support frequencies up to 90GHz

Jon Lawson

Fairview Microwave launches a new line of waveguide bends operating from 5.85 to 90GHz across 12 frequency bands (from C band to W band).

These waveguide bends are frequently used in applications such as high efficiency RF, test benches, instrumentation, microwave and mm-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.

Fairview’s extensive lines of waveguide bends consist of 30 unique models offered from stock. Sizes range from WR-137 (5.85 GHz) to WR-12 (90 GHz) and most models are RoHS compliant.
