Pasternack, a provider of RF, microwave and millimetre wave products, has released a new line of waveguide direct read attenuators for instrumentation, test benches, high efficiency RF/Microwave transmissions, SATCOM, MILCOM, radar and telecom applications.

Pasternack’s direct read attenuators are available in WR-42 to WR-10 waveguide standards operating in seven waveguide bands within the 18 GHz to 110 GHz frequency range. They boast ±2% typical attenuation accuracy and feature an easy-to-read drum scale and military standard UG-style flanges.

Minimum attenuation range is 0 dB to 50 dB with an insertion loss of 0.5dB to 1dB depending on the frequency range.

These direct read waveguide attenuators can be used in many industries including aerospace, defence, industrial, telecom, instrumentation and medical. They are built from quality construction materials and ensure consistent performance.
