PD5160 - DC Blocking Power Splitter Combiner
6 Way, SMA Female, 698 - 2700 MHz, 50 Ohm
Features & Benefits
PD5160 is a 6 way, passive, 50 ohm, DC blocking RF power divider, power combiner with SMA connectors passing DC one port and blocking DC five ports. The pass port passes RF, 10 MHz and DC. The blocked ports pass 10 MHz and RF but block DC current. Maximum voltage rating at the DC blocked ports is 50 VDC. All wireless band applications in the 698 to 2700 MHz and L Band frequency range covered with best in class performance. The RoHS compliant, bidirectional PD5160 is capable of handling input power levels up to 40 watts in both power splitter and power combiner applications. See 6 way power divider input rating tables for info.
The heart of the unit is a precision designed and etched Wilkinson type microstrip circuit on a low loss, high frequency, dielectric substrate. The Wilkinson microstrip circuit passes DC current to all ports making it ideal for use in active systems. Power splitter dividers passing DC to select ports and blocking DC to others are also available. See options (right). A true 6 way power divider, power combiner with equal power split and balance, the PD5060's electrical performance is highlighted by 1.1 dB max insertion loss (above the -7.78 dB power split), 18 dB min isolation, 1.40:1 max input VSWR and 1.25:1 max output VSWR. Equal power split and balance is displayed by 0.3 dB max amplitude balance and 5 degrees max phase balance. Narrow band RF performance over your frequency range may be even better. See 6 way Type N Female power divider test sweeps for specific details.
Mechanical features include precision CNC, brass, 50 ohm SMA female coaxial connectors with tri alloy plating to insure tarnish resistance and low PIM operation. Connector pins are gold plated phosphor bronze for reliability and low contact resistance.
Housing dimensions are 5.98" wide by 2.98" deep by 0.88" high (151.9 x 75.7 x 22.2 mm). The SMA female connectors extend 0.44" (11.1 mm) from the housing. Operating temperature range is from -65°C to +85°C. Weight is 568 grams. See 6 way RF power splitter outline drawing for more information.
The PD5160 6-way, SMA female (jack), DC Blocking power divider (splitter) combiner is ideal for a wide range of wireless radio frequency microwave applications on both transmit and receive sides, ranging from amplifier sharing & receiver combining to antenna splitting, and is deployed world wide in networks encompassing 700 MHz Public Safety Band, 800 MHz cellular, GSM 850, 900, 1800 & 1900, PCS 1900, 1 GHz to 2 GHz L-Band, GPS, W-CDMA-3G, UMTS, TETRA, RFID, IEEE802.11b/g, 2.45 GHz ISM, Wi Fi and 2.3 GHz & 2.5 GHz WiMAX.
