DC to 3 GHz, 75-Ohm broadcast attenuators for HD video

July 08, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Pasternack Enterprises’ 75 Ohm F attenuators now includes a line of F-type attenuators for broadcast, HDTV and satcom applications in the L and S microwave bands up to 3 GHz.

These F attenuators are available in 1 to 10 dB values in 1 dB steps, with 16 and 20 dB values also available. 75 Ohm fixed attenuators are widely used in the broadcast industry for signal levelling and to attenuate (or reduce) strong input signals to sensitive broadcasting equipment.

The attenuators Pasternack operate from DC to 3 GHz at a max. power of 2W, making them high-definition TV compatible. Pasternack HD attenuators are constructed with brass bodies that are tri-metal plated for added durability. The centre contacts are gold plated which provides low loss and uniform signal strength for the life of the product. These F attenuators meet IEC 60169-24 standards and are compatible all other standard F-type components.
