KRYTAR—Compact Couplers Created (Narrowband Solutions)

[SatNews] KRYTAR, Inc. has continued its expansion of its line of directional couplers with the addition of two new models offering 30dB of Coupling over the frequency range of 4.0 to 12.4GHz and 7.0 to 12.4GHz, each in a single, compact and lightweight package.

KRYTAR’s new directional couplers expand the family of superior performance products offering 4.0 to 12.4GHz coverage in compact packages. KRYTAR’s new couplers are multi-purpose, stripline designs that exhibit excellent coupling. Model 120430 covers the 4.0 to 12.4GHz frequency band, while Model 120730 covers the 7.0 to 12.4GHz frequency band.

These new couplers are uniquely designed for systems applications where external leveling, precise monitoring, signal mixing or swept transmission and reflection measurements are required. They provide solutions for many  narrowband applications including SATCOM, electronic warfare (EW), commercial wireless, radar, signal monitoring and measurement, antenna beam forming, and EMC testing environments. For many space-restricted applications, the compact size makes KRYTAR directional couplers ideal.

Both of KRYTAR’s new couplers enhanced the product line with performance ratings including Nominal Coupling (with respect to output) of 3 dB, ±1.0dB and Frequency Sensitivity of ±0.30dB. Each directional coupler exhibits Insertion Loss (including coupled power) of less than 0.50dB, Directivity of 15dB, Maximum VSWR (any port) is 1.35, Input Power Rating is 20W average and 3kW peak. The directional couplers come with industry-standard 2.4mm SMA female connectors. The compact packages measure 1.40 inches (L) x 0.40 inches (W) x 0.66 inches (H), and weigh just 1.0 ounces. Operating temperature is -54° to 85° C. The new directional couplers can be manufactured to meet ridged military specifications.
