Waveguide Twists Operate from 18 to 110 GHz

10 May 2016

Pasternack, a provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has introduced a family of precision waveguide twists operating from 18 to 110 GHz across seven frequency bands. Ideal for systems requiring a gradual turn in the polarization and waveform, these twists are designed and constructed to prevent unwanted distortion in the signal’s transmission.

The waveguide twists are useful components when building a waveguide system, as they allow the waveguide to be turned at a precise angle in order to meet the mechanical and electrical constraints of the overall system. These waveguide twists are also beneficial in applications to ensure correct polarization of the signal. Pasternack offers both 45° and 90° waveguide twists from stock, with the 45° version available in both right-hand and left-hand twist configurations.

More than 20 unique models of waveguide twists are offered from Pasternack with waveguide sizes ranging from WR-42 (18 GHz) to WR-10 (110 GHz). This portfolio of waveguide twists boasts gold-plated brass construction that offers VSWR as low as 1.02:1 and insertion loss as low as 0.2 dB. Both square and circular UG-style flange types are available, and mechanical length ranges from 1 to 2.7 inches. All waveguide twists from Pasternack are in stock and available to ship the same day.
