Choosing the Best Coaxial Attenuator


Coaxial attenuator is a cross-linking method, pi or t networks, connector to RF / Microwave connectors. These simulations are often used to modify the signal parameters in battle & commercial rf & microwave. When choosing the right coaxial pen to use, one must keep in mind some important components.

Connecting type: SMA locks, BNC locks, & N locks are the most common. One can also easily purchase locks and TNC connectors, 2.92mm, & 2.4mm. There are a few manufacturers that offer QMA, 1.85, SMB, F, & Reverse Polarity (N, SMA, TNC) protections. Obviously coaxial adapters can be used with any connector, but we all tend to avoid them unless necessary.

Material connector: All Brass & Stainless steel is common. One has to look at what is related to the gravity; sma of copper requires 3-5 in-lbs, stainless steel sma requires 7-10 in-lbs, depending on the manufacturer. Using a 10 in-lb torque wrench on a brass sma often distorts the sma nuts right away! SMA, BNC, Type N, & TNC sweeteners are available in both materials, with copper used for most commercial, & transient stainless steel for wedding / demates. Non-use of sweets, such as sma, can cause frequent reactions, usually 15 ghz & above.

Power CW: The 18ghz 2 watts small-scale power supply is the most widely available reduction device, although there are also less than 0.5watt & 1 watt power outages available as well. Above 18ghz the options are limited, usually only 0.5watts at 50ghz. Similarly under power over 18ghz is available, with no watts of 500 watts of non-melting in the normal 3ghz. Power CW is often expressed in temperature, but it starts to heat up; 2 watt unit @ 25C only works 0.5watts @ 125 C

Frequency: As the quantity increases, the opposing chips must be made more accurately, which is why they cost more. The most common groups are 0-6ghz, 0-18ghz, 0-26ghx, 0-40ghz, & 0-50ghz, 0-65ghz. As this function is only interconnected, the minimum frequencies are 0. The frequency limit one would expect to be most disturbed in passband response, & excessive deviation in search.

Direction: Small scale experiments have two sides, perhaps the port can be used as an input. Most of the power outlets are non-compliant, have inputs & outputs, and connecting DUT to the back is dangerous. This is due to the fact that the electric shields use small chips that we disassemble; maybe 2-3 db in the first chip, 3-5 second, 6-30 third, to properly distribute the heat so that it loses its length. Power consumption on the output results in almost all the energy dissolved in a single chip that burns too much and fails.

DC Attention: Being a contrasting network, coaxial attenuators are not designed to eliminate DC & replace DC. Usually a burner can overheat its anti-failure properties and fail. One can cross the block with DC block & bias-t’s. A few experiments that go beyond existing ones include dc block & bias t’s.

Supporting Tools: Almost all available tools are used for BeCu women’s connections, & male communication with Brass. A number of consumer programs are replacing the copper-clad women in order to reduce the cost, but this should be avoided at all costs except for consumers.

Electrical Description: One can expect the following: VSWR, Price Rate, Accuracy (tolerance), frequency (upstream), CW Power Management, Electrical Discharge, High Temperature, Diameter, Connector Equipment, and Supplements.
