-- Fairview Microwave is now introducing BNC Push Attenuators. Push attenuators may become useful when the requirement to adjust signal level is very frequent. Rather than switching out attenuators, you have the option of selecting or deselecting certain Decibel values to achieve the optimal signal. Push attenuators may differentiate from rotary or step attenuators in the aspect of stacking dB values. Push attenuators can stack Decibel values while Step attenuators only have 1 setting or Decibel signal the configuration can be at. One model is currently being offered. Fairview Microwave currently offers push attenuators with BNC connectors but may expand to other connectors in the future. It's frequency range is DC to 750 Mhz with BNC Female connectors. The following are the increments in Decibel and buttons available at the top section of the attenuator: 1 dB, 2 dB, 4 dB, 8 dB, 10 dB, and two 20 dB options. If all options are selected, it accumulates to 65 dB total. The attenuator handles 1 watt average and 1 kilowatt, peak power. VSWR for the product is 1.40:1 max at 500 to 750 Mhz. Attenuation accuracy is +/- 1.3 dB at the 500 to 750 Mhz bandwidth. Insertion loss is 1.0 dB typical at 750 Mhz. The dimensions for SA750S is 4.13 x 1.50 x 1.00(only body). Fairview Microwave's SA750S can be found at http://www.fairviewmicrowave.com/step_rotary_attenuators.htm
with other various step attenuators. Fairview Microwave also sells numberous adapters in the case you need to adapt to another interface. Visit http://www.fairviewmicrowave.com/coaxial_adapters.htm
