Fairview Introduces New Right-Angle Waveguide to Coax Adapters

Fairview

Fairview Microwave has released a new line of 1.85mm, 2.4mm and 2.92mm waveguide to coax adapters with operating ranges up to 65 GHz. These waveguide adapters are ideal for numerous applications requiring a transition from coax to waveguide or vice versa, including SATCOM, wireless communications, industrial, test and measurement and defense systems.

The ten new waveguide to coax adapters extend the company’s portfolio to include millimeter wave frequency ranges with models in the K-band (18 to 26.5 GHz) up to the V-band (50 to 65 GHz). These coax to waveguide adapters offer excellent VSWR as low as 1.29:1, while also providing insertion loss performance as low as 0.3 dB. Waveguide sizes available for these new models include WR-42, WR-28, WR-22, WR-19 and WR-15.

Fairview’s new waveguide to coax adapters feature a right-angle configuration, those with 2.92mm connectors use a UG-style square waveguide flange, 2.4mm and 1.85mm connector versions use a UG-style circular waveguide flange. Both male and female connector options are available in each frequency band.
