Precision waveguide twists come in 45 and 90° styles. Precision waveguide twists come in 45 and 90° styles.

Fairview Microwave Inc., a supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, unveiled a family of precision waveguide twists operating across seven frequency bands from 18 to 110 GHz. These twists are designed to prevent unwanted distortion in the signal’s transmission and are perfect for systems requiring a turn in the polarization and waveform.

The waveguide twists are beneficial components to have 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 useful to ensure correct signal polarization. Both 45° and 90° waveguide twists are available from stock, with the 45° versions offered in both right hand and left hand twist configurations.

Fairview offers more than 20 unique models of waveguide twists with sizes ranging from WR-42 (18 GHz) to WR-10 (110 GHz). They feature gold-plated brass construction that provides VSWR as low as 1.02:1 and insertion loss as low as 0.2 dB. Square and circular UG-style flange types are available and mechanical length ranges from 1 to 2.7 inches.

The waveguide twists are in stock and ready for shipping.
