The 3002-20 is a Directional Coupler from Narda. An electronic test equipment coupler is useful for reflectometer applications, attenuation measurements, power measurements, microwave measurements, network analysis, and source leveling, to name a few.
- Frequency range: 0.95 to 2 GHz
- Coupling Coefficient: 20 dB
- Directivity: 30 Db
- Insertion Loss: 0.20
- VSWR: Line Max 1.15
In today's microwave practice, the directional coupler has become a virtually indispensable measurement tool. It provides a simple, convenient, accurate means for sampling microwave energy without moving parts and without the need for adjustments.
Unlike other methods of power sampling involving probes or coupling loops, the directional coupler also provides the important capability of seperating forward from reflected power. By selecting energy traveling only in one direction, accurate VSWR measurements can be made automatically, elliminating the mechanical motion needed with a slotted line.
Attenuation measurements also become more accurate when directional couplers are used since reflection errors are eliminated.
