We also offer hundreds of replacement parts in stock and ready for same-day shipping.
Description | Circulators are three or four-port waveguide components utilizing ferrite technology to selectively direct energy to a specific port based upon the direction of wave propagation. By placing a load on the port where reflected energy is directed, a three-port circulator can be made into an isolator. R...Read more on this
Description | Isolators are three-port circulators which transmit microwave energy between ports, while directing reflected energy to a port with an attached load. In many industrial heating applications, the isolator is used to protect the magnetron from moding or over-heating caused by the reflected energy. Ric...Read more on this
Description | Rely on New Japan Radio Co. (NJRC) Low Noise Front Ends (LNFE) from Richardson Electronics to reduce frequency pulling and achieve desired noise levels. The use of LNFE decreases design time while offering high performance and cost savings. NJRC manufactures a line of low noise front ends (LNFE) sui...Read more on this
Description | NJRC limiters contain patented band pass filters which offer complete protection against spurious emanations. Certain limiters also contain externally biased diodes enabling the radar designer to obtain sensitivity timing control. Our limiters offer protection from microwave power levels from 2 kW t...Read more on this
Description | Waveguide is required in a microwave system to efficiently transmit microwave energy from the source (generator) to the load (cavity/applicator). Waveguide can vary in shape, most commonly rectangular or circular, and waveguide size is dependent on the frequency and mode of propagation. Richardson E...Read more on this
Description | Tuners are waveguide components used to match the load impedance with the source impedance. They minimize the amount of reflected power, providing the most efficient coupling of power to the load. Richardson Electronics supplies both manual 3- and 4-stub tuners, electrical and auto tuners. Auto and ...Read more on this
Description | Power measuring devices are waveguide components used to couple power from the waveguide system to measure power, frequency, and other system parameters. These devices include directional couplers and power meters. Richardson Electronics supplies various types of resistive loop directional couplers ...Read more on this
