Coaxial termination suits harsh environments

August 26, 2014 // By Julien Happich
The AMCOL-1-T medium-power coaxial termination from Link Microtek is particularly suitable for use in HF and VHF systems that are deployed in demanding environments where installation and maintenance may be carried out with gloved hands.

Designed and manufactured at Link's premises in the centre of Basingstoke, the new device safely absorbs RF signals in the frequency range 10 to 100 MHz and is fitted with a TNC male connector incorporating a coarse-ribbed M27-threaded collar to ensure secure mechanical attachment.

The 50-ohm termination provides excellent performance over its specified frequency range, with a power-handling capability of 25W CW, a maximum VSWR of 1.2:1 and an operating temperature range of -40 to 70ºC. Equipped with an anodised aluminium heatsink to ensure optimum thermal dissipation, the AMCOL-1-T device has overall dimensions of 125 x 40mm.
