Ferrite Microwave Technologies (FMT) offers a wide range of high power coaxial microwave circulators in frequencies from 50 MHz to 50 GHz. Most coaxial circulators are three port devices, supplied in either “Y” or “T” junction styles.
Coaxial Circulators: FMT Designs
FMT coaxial circulators are available in sizes ranging from SMA to 14″ EIA, along with the industry standard tab mount. These units are designed for high reliability where failure cannot be tolerated. Coaxial circulators are typically used for source protection with magnetrons, TWT’s, Klystrons, and for use in Solid State Amplifier platforms.
Applications range from Accelerators (Scientific and Medical), Radar Systems (Isolators or Duplexers), Communication Systems, and Industrial Processing. Depending upon application, power levels, and output mismatch conditions, circulators can incorporate cooling by either air (natural convection or forced air), or liquid cooling.
