New termination for use in high-power microwave systems

New from Link Microtek, the AMCOL-2-7/8 coaxial termination has been designed to safely absorb high-power microwave and RF signals in a wide variety of operational systems and test-and-measurement applications.

Developed and produced at Link’s premises in the centre of Basingstoke, the new device provides impressive levels of performance over its specified operating frequency range of DC to 3.1GHz, with a power handling capability of up to 50W and a maximum return loss of 27dB.

This 50-ohm termination incorporates an EIA 7/8in. brass connector and can also be supplied with an optional quick-release flange, which is a particularly useful time-saving feature in a test environment where the device is likely to be connected and disconnected repeatedly.

Equipped with an anodised aluminium heatsink to ensure optimum thermal dissipation, the AMCOL-2-7/8 termination has overall dimensions of 202 (L) x 60 (D) mm.

For applications requiring a non-standard product, Link is able to design and supply bespoke terminations to meet customer specifications with regard to performance, materials, dimensions and choice of connector.
