Waveguide band high performance direct reading attenuators

May 11, 2018 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
SAGE Millimeter now offers full waveguide band high performance direct reading attenuators in W, E, and V Band.

Model STA-60-10-D8 is an instrumentation grade, high precision and high attenuation range direct reading, rotary vane attenuator for use in millimeter wave test set across the standard W-band frequency range of 75 to 110 GHz. The attenuator has a large scale calibrated dial which indicates the attenuation value directly. It is an ideal piece of equipment in waveguide systems where a broad direct reading of attenuation is required and  exhibits exceptional repeatability during frequent attenuation setting operations. The attenuator has 1.2 dB typical insertion loss and up to maximum 70 dB attenuation. The accuracy of the attenuator is 0.1 dB or 1% of the reading up to 60 dB, and “for reference only” above 70 dB.

Model STA-60-12-P8 is an instrumentation grade, high precision and high attenuation range motorized programmable attenuator for use in millimeterwave systems across the standard E-band frequency range of 60 to 90 GHz. The attenuation control and power interface is an integrated and pre-configured Lantronix Xport AR device with an Ethernet port (RJ45) which is used to accommodate remote operations from 0 to 60 dB and up to 70 dB attenuation value. The attenuator can be accurately controlled with the increments of 0.1 dB between 0 and 40 dB and 0.2 dB between 40 and 50 dB. Above 50 dB, the control is realized by using the STEPS feature and the attenuation value is for reference only (see manual for more details). To operate remotely, download the ‘DeviceInstaller’ program and firmware from Latronix onto a local computer. The attenuator is powered and controlled with a PoE enabled ethernet cord via the Ethernet cable provided.
