PD4620 - Features & Benefits
PD4620 is a RoHS compliant, 2 way, wideband, 50 ohm, RF power divider, power combiner furnished with N-type female coaxial connectors in a T-Style housing. All wireless band frequencies in the 800 to 6000 MHz range are covered with optimal performance. Max microwave input power levels up to 40 watts can be handled in both power splitter and power combiner applications. See 2 way power divider input rating tables for more detail.
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). Electrical performance is highlighted by 1.0 dB max insertion loss (above the 3.01 dB power split), 20 dB min isolation, 1.40:1 max input VSWR and 1.30:1 max output VSWR. Equal power split and balance is displayed by 0.4 dB max amplitude balance and 4 degrees max phase balance. Narrow band RF performance over your frequency range may be even better. See 2 way power divider test sweeps for specific details.
The PD4620's T-Style housing allows convenient RF cabling access to all connector ports. Featuring precision CNC turned, brass, 50 ohm type-N female (jack) 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. Virgin electrical grade PTFE support insulators captivate the contact pins enabling trouble free connector mating.
Long term operation and superior shielding is assured by the rugged CNC machined aluminum housing with clear chem film finish. Secure mounting is provided by two 0.125" dia (3.18 mm) through holes. RoHS construction includes no-lead solder and a finish free of hexavalent chromium.
Housing dimensions are 1.48" wide by 2.73" deep by 0.88" high (31.75 x 69.3 x 22.2 mm). The N type female (jack) connectors extend 0.65" (16.5 mm) from the housing. Operating temperature range is from -65°C to +85°C. Weight is 184 grams. See 2 way power divider outline drawing for more information.
The PD4620 2-way, N female (jack), 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.
Standard Model : A standard version of this two way power combiner divider is available utilizing tin/lead solder and comprising a yellow iridite finish. PD3020
PD7020: DC pass 1 port, DC block 1 port. Typically used for powering an active antenna through the DC pass port of the 2 way RF power divider splitter.
PD7022: DC block 2 ports. Typically used in combining applications to prevent passing DC to sum port or other input.
