EUPEN elliptical waveguides are the optimal choice for most microwave
antenna feeder systems. EUPEN Waveguides are precision-formed from
corrugated high-conductivity copper and have an elliptical cross
The corrugated wall gives the waveguide excellent crush strength and
good flexibility for ease of handling. A rugged black polyethylene
jacket provides protection during installation. The jacket is
weatherproof and ultraviolet-stabilized to prevent deterioration.
Standard jacketing material is suitable for operation down to -54°C
(-65°F) and installation down to -40°C (-40°F). A full range of
Waveguide sizes is available for applications from 5.85 to 13.25 GHz.
LOW LOSS. EUPEN elliptical waveguides are optimised for lowest loss in
specific user bands. Attenuation is significantly lower than that of
standard rectangular waveguides for these bands, resulting in highly
efficient signal transfer which optimises overall system performance.
LOW SIGNAL DISTORTION
The elliptical cross section has HEC11 as t he dominant mode, which is
similar to the TE10 mode in rectangular waveguide, and propagates below
the cut-off frequencies of higher-order modes. Operating in the
frequency band where only the dominant mode can exist eliminates signal distortion due to dispersion and minimizes VSWR.
EXCELLENT & GUARANTEED VSWR PERFORMANCE
All EUPEN waveguides and factory assemblies are designed to meet our
very low stated VSWR specifications. You get the performance you expect.
MINIMUM INSTALLATION COST
EUPEN elliptical waveguide and accessories allow for simplified system
planning and minimize the installation cost compared with other types
of waveguide. Good flexibility of the corrugated copper construction
provides easy installation. Saves time and labour.
HIGHEST STRENGTH & FLEXIBILITY
Optimal crush and pulling strength and flexibility are given by the
corrugated design of the waveguide. The low bending moment and bending
radius allow superior handling and forming during installation.
