IRVINE, Calif. – Pasternack Enterprises in Irvine, Calif., is introducing a line of RF loads with 10 different types of connectors for quick mating in military base stations, antennas, and test instrumentation.

Pasternack's 24 connect terminations are available with QMA, QN, 4.3-10, SMP, SMP-M and BMA connectors for quick snap-on or push-on mating. These RF loads support operating frequency ranges from DC to 40 GHz.

The RF and microwave loads deliver a voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) as low as 1.1:1 and maximum input power as strong as 2 Watts. Some models are available with chains. These quick-connect RF loads improve flexibility of installation and eliminate the need for wrench or torque for thread coupling.

The QMA model is made of tri-metal-plated brass, the SMP model is gold-plated brass, the SMP-M is made with gold-plated beryllium copper, and the 4.3-10 model is nickel-plated brass. These terminations are for the defense, aerospace, industrial, and telecommunications industries.

"Our new quick-connect and easy-install lines of RF loads and termination further expand our extensive product offerings of RF terminations," says Pasternack Product Manager Steven Pong. "These new RF loads reduce installation time with enhanced electrical performance, compared to previous connectorized designs. All 24 models are available off-the-shelf with same day shipping."
