Directional couplers

Frequency range: 0.05 to 26.5 GHz

Operating temperature: 0...+120 °C

Micran directional couplers represent two-channel devices made for branching high-frequency power from the main channel into the secondary one. The directional couplers of NO15 series are used to divide direct and reflected waves. Directional couplers of NO16 series are based on a coupled microstrip line and can be used, for example, in automatic power control systems. The construction and components of our direct couplers provide high performance stability for multiple connections.

NOTICE

* VSWR of the branching port is not regulated.



Couplers NO16-0,5-20-12R-12R, NO16-0,5-26-03R-03R and NO16-0,5-26-13R-13R are supplied without matched loads neccessary for coupler operation. When buying these devices remember to order a corresponding matched load of NS3-20 series.
