Kratos General Microwave offers PIN diode-based limiters, supporting up to 600 watts of pulsed power.
The limiters can be supplied in various configurations: connectorized, drop-in or with field-removable connectors.
The limiters can be supplied as stand alone limiters, or as integrated modules that include the limiter and a control component such as a switch or attenuator as specified in the following:
A switch module is available in front or after the limiter, handling up to 25-watt CW/ 250-watt Peak power.
Provides combined protection and attenuation capabilities (Option).
A limiter and an amplifier module that maintains the required power. Signal is amplified if power is not within the specified range (Option).
LOW POWER LIMITERS
Support 1GHz – 18GHz, up to 20-Watts Average power and 500-watt Peak power.
HIGH POWER LIMITERS
Support 1GHz – 12GHz, up to 60-Watts Average power and 400-watt Peak power.
The main parameters of Limiter specifications are Frequency Band, Input Power and Flat Leakage. Note that there is a trade-off between these parameters.
