BD142: 7-16 Coaxial Bidirectional Detector, 2 kW

BD142 is a bidirectional detector intended for simultaneous sampling of incident and reflected waves in high-power 2450 MHz industrial applications using a coaxial line with 7-16 connectors. The bidirectional detector combines the following components:

  • 4-port directional coupler (60-dB coupling)
  • Attenuators
  • Zero-bias Schottky diode detectors

The detector delivers well-scaled DC voltages proportional to power of the waves propagating in forward and reverse directions in the main coaxial line.
