IRVINE, Calif. – Pasternack Enterprises Inc. in Irvine, Calif., is introducing a line of twistable and seamless flexible RF waveguides for DAS systems, base stations, antennas, and test instrumentation.

The waveguides operate in the 5.85-to-50-GHz frequency range and cover 10 frequency bands from WR-137 to WR-22. These flexible waveguides have 78 total models -- 39 seamless and 39 twistable. All models operate in the same RF and microwave frequency range, are available in lengths of 6 to 36 inches and with UG-style square/round cover and CPR-style flanges.

The twistable models can twist in different directions using wound twist flex material. Interlocking brass enables it to slide on itself. These flexible waveguides provide voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) as low as 1.05:1, insertion loss as low as 0.15 decibels, and max power as high as 1.5 kilowatts.

The seamless models have a solid piece of brass pressed into shape. These flexible waveguides are for pressurized applications, deliver VSWR as low as 1.07:1, insertion loss as low as 0.06 decibels and max power as high as 5 kilowatts for antennas and related applications.
