Attenuator Evolution!

Is it an adaptor, attenuator, adap-tenuator, between series attenuator? Whatever you call them, BroadWave’s fixed attenuators have evolved! We have developed fixed attenuators that save money; take up less space and lower insertion loss by eliminating the need for adapters. Now you can order fixed attenuators with your connector configuration. Model 359-284-2R5 is a 50 Ohm, DC-2200 MHz, 2.5 dB, 1 Watt device with BNC male to SMA female connectors.

These revolutionary fixed attenuators are available in any combination of BNC, F, N, SMA or TNC connectors. Standard impedances are 50 and 75 Ohm (custom impedances are available). Other designs feature 2, 30, 50, 100 and 150 Watts average power handling with frequency ranges up to 3 GHz. Check out some of the specifications on available models.
