A line of 75Ω F attenuators, designed for broadcast, HDTV and satcom applications, has been launched by Pasternack. The introduction of the attenuators signal an expansion of Pasternack's exisiting portfolio of 75Ω F attenuators, and are suited to applications in the L and S microwave bands up to 3GHz.
The F attenuators are available in 1 to 10 dB values in 1 dB steps, with 16 and 20 dB values also available. Constructed with brass bodies that are tri-metal plated for added durability, the attenuators operate from DC to 3 GHz at a max power of 2W. The gold plated center contacts provide low loss and uniform signal strength for the life of the product. Meeting IEC 60169-24 standards and compatible with all other standard F-type components, the attenuators are widely used in the broadcast industry for signal leveling and to attenuate (or reduce) strong input signals to sensitive broadcasting equipment.
“Pasternack expands its 75Ω product offering to now include 75Ω HD type-F attenuators that operate to 3 GHz,” says Gerry Camacho, VP of Technical Marketing at Pasternack Enterprises, Inc. “Our new line of F attenuators are available in 1 dB steps up to 10 dB, which are a good solution for signal strength leveling.”
The new 3 GHz F attenuators are in-stock and available to ship from Pasternack now.
