Model 120730 continues to expand the family of superior performance narrow-band products covering the frequency range of 0.3 to 50 GHz. It adds to the selection of multi-purpose, stripline designs that exhibit excellent coupling.

This coupler is uniquely designed for systems applications where external leveling, precise monitoring, signal mixing or swept transmission and reflection measurements are required. Typical applications include electronic warfare (EW), commercial wireless, SATCOM, radar, signal monitoring and measurement, antenna beam forming, and EMC testing. The company’s directional couplers are ideal for many space-restricted applications.

Model 120730 boasts nominal coupling (with respect to output) of 6 dB, ±0.5 dB, and frequency sensitivity of ±0.30 dB. The directional coupler exhibits insertion loss (including coupled power) of less than 1.8 dB, directivity of greater than 15 dB, maximum VSWR (any port) of 1.35, and input power rating of 20 W average and 3 kW peak.

The directional couplers come with industry-standard 2.4-mm SMA female connectors. The compact package measures 3.6- (L) x 1.0- (W) x 1.68-cm (1.40- x 0.40- x 0.66-inches), and weigh just 1.0 ounces. Operating temperature is -54° to 85° C. The directional couplers can be manufactured to meet ridged military specifications.

The company also offers complete engineering services for custom designs that meet or exceed critical performance and/or packaging specifications.
