High power high directivity single and dual directional couplers

03 November 2022

RLC Electronics' high power high directivity directional couplers offer accurate coupling (+/- 1.0dB), low insertion loss (0.1 to 0.35 dB max) and greater than 35 dB directivity in both directions. These high power couplers are offered with 500 W to 1,000 W average power handling up to 18 GHz, as well as 100 W versions up to 40 GHz. Couplers are provided in both single and dual directional construction, typically over a two-octave bandwidth or less.

RLC can utilize SC or 7/16 connectors on the main line, should this be needed to meet customer designs. Typical applications for these high power couplers include (but are not limited to):

  • High power sampling and signal leveling
  • TWTA (traveling wave tube amplifier)/HPA (high power amplifier) test beds
  • Calibration Labs
  • Power monitoring
  • Voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) measurements
