MCi’s coaxial directional and loop couplers are designed to couple signals from a high power coaxial transmission line. These signals can be used for alarm circuits, envelope monitoring, frequency monitoring and other operations.
High Power Coaxial Loop Couplers
Micro Communications high power coaxial loop couplers have an external load. The loop coupler can measure either forward or reverse power without rotation. This is completed by manually repositioning the load. The advantage to utilizing an external load is that the loop coupler can handle high power with closer values of coupling. Additionally, the load can easily be replaced if damage occurs.
Coaxial Couplers & Measuring Power
To measure forward and reverse power simultaneously, two couplers are required. Given MCi’s couplers are relatively small – a number of single or multiple loops can be mounted circumferentially, or in-line. Next, each coupler housing is welded to the line. This ensures the factory calibrated value of coupling. All high power coaxial directional and loop couplers are adjusted in height and angle to select the desired value of coupling and directivity. Precision built-in height and angles are installed for presetting. Similarly, field installable saddle-type couplers are also available.
