Return to Octave Band Couplers DCS603

Directional Couplers // Octave Band Couplers

DESCRIPTION:

This series offers octave band coverage with varied coupling values to facilitate multiple applications. The design also permits usage as a bi-directional coupler, allowing the sampling of incident and reflected power. Design package accommodates SMA, N, BNC and TNC connectors. Design modification may be necessary for non-SMA connectors.

FEATURES:

  •  Low Insertion Loss 
  • Octave Band Coverage
  • High Directivity
  • Standard SMA Connectors (N, BNC, TNC optional)
