512Mi-Waves’ has created their 512 series dual precision programmable rotary vane attenuators which are are available in full waveguide bands from 5.0 to 220.0 GHz. Attenuation control is either manually via a front panel or remote controlled using a standard IEEE- 488 interface. The attenuators’ small compact size incorporates both the electronic controller and microwave components. The unit operates from a single +24 volt DC source or with an optional AC adapter.

Attenuation range is from 0 to 120 dB in 0.1 dB steps with 0.05 dB steps from 0 to 20 dB. A digital readout is provided on the front panel to display attenuation settings. The attenuators are highly reliable and designed to be used in ATE and remote power control applications. RS-232 Control Also Available
