Model 500508010 is a multi-purpose, stripline directional coupler with 10-dB coupling factor from 0.5 to 8.0 GHz. It is designed for applications where external leveling, precise monitoring, signal mixing, or swept transmission and reflection measurements are required. It maintains coupling within ±1 dB across its frequency range, with insertion loss (including coupling power) of less than 2.3 dB and directivity of greater than 15 dB. The maximum VSWR at any port is 1.35:1. The coupler is rated for 20 W average power and 3 kW peak power. The dual directional coupler is supplied with industry-standard 2.4-mm SMA female connectors. Type-N female connectors are also available as an option. The coupler measures 10.50 x 0.53 and is designed for operating temperatures from -54 to +85°C.
