Fairview Microwave releases series of flexible waveguide models delivering VSWR as low as 1.05:1

Fairview Microwave, a provider of on-demand RF and microwave components, has unveiled a line of seamless and twistable flexible waveguides.

The new waveguides cover 10 frequency bands from WR-137 to WR-22 and operating in the 5.85 GHz to 50 GHz range.

Typical applications include base stations, DAS systems, antennas and test instrumentation.

These flexible waveguides consist of 78 models – 39 seamless and 39 twistable, all operating in the same wide range of frequencies. All models are offered with UG-style square/round cover and CPR-style flanges and are available in lengths of 6 to 36-inches.

The models in this series are constructed of a solid piece of brass that is pressed into shape. These flexible waveguides deliver VSWR as low as 1.07:1, max power as high as 5 kW, insertion loss as low as 0.06 dB and can be used in pressurized applications.

The twistable models are made with twist-flex material that is wound, interlocking brass which allows it to slide on itself, making it able to twist in different directions. These flexible waveguides provide max power as high as 1.5 kW, insertion loss as low as 0.15 dB and VSWR as low as 1.05:1.
