flange mount attenuators

 

Flange Mount Attenuators: Flange attenuators are often used in high-power amplifiers and as terminating attenuators in isolators where lower-level signal sampling may be required. Standard dB values are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 20, and 30 for frequencies up to 4 GHz and power levels up to 250 Watts. Other designs available.  
  Chip Terminations: Powerfilm chip terminations and resistors with standard values of 50 and 100 ohm are available in wide selection of sizes and with various solder, silver, or gold finish options. chip terminations

 

flange terminations

 

Flange Terminations: Powerfilm flange terminations with standard values of 50 and 100 ohm are available for frequencies up to 7 GHz and power levels up to 1250 Watts average. Flange sizes vary from 0.3”x 0.2" to 1.9”x 1.0". Other designs available upon request.
