Pasternack Enterprises has released a family of high frequency, WR-15 waveguide antennas, which are perfectly designed for high-bandwidth applications including point-to-point links, GigE wireless LAN, millimeter radiometry, uncompressed HD video, FMCW radar, millimeter scintillometry, campus networks, and multi-gigabit wireless communications.

Offered in this release are four high gain WR-15 horn antennas operating between 50 GHz and 70 GHz and are available in 20 dBi, 24 dBi, 34 dBi and 42 dBi gain models. The company’s WR-15 waveguide horn antennas pairs seamlessly with the recently added 60 GHz transmit/receive development system (PEM003-KIT) which enables companies to experiment and develop applications in the globally-unlicensed 60 GHz frequency band. Using two of the company’s WR-15 beam antennas rated to 42 dBi gain (PE9881-42), a user is able to transmit and receive a 60 GHz signal at a distance of one kilometer (km), making these antennas ideal for high frequency point-to-point backhaul.

Also available is an omni-directional millimeter wave antenna (PE-W15A001), a vertically polarized WR-15 waveguide connected antenna using a standard UG387/U flange that operates between 58 GHz and 63 GHz. This omni-directional millimeter wave antenna has a 30 degree vertical beam width and a 360 degree horizontal gain variation, making it ideal for short range wireless communications, indoor networks, high frequency applications and 60 GHz development systems. The millimeter wave omni-directional antenna is constructed with a durable brass waveguide input and light-weight aluminum body.
