Our standard feed combiners often can be found as one key part of our feed systems. Should you consider outsourcing the adaption or upgrade of your feed system entirely, MIRAD is the perfect partner. With our antenna upgrade experience you will get a technically and financially optimized system. However, the feed combiners are also available as stand-alone units for different frequency bands.

Feed Combiner Components

4-port Ka-band feed combiner with forced cooling
  • Blue: Taper, interface to the circular waveguide
  • Green: Orthomode transducer (OMT), separation of polarization
  • Orange: Diplexers, separation of transmit and receive frequency bands
  • Turquoise: Hybrid couplers, recombination of orthogonal signals to produce circularity

Any component of the feed combiner is available as single component as well. However, in order to get best possible performance a single source solution is recommended.

Frequency bands:

  • C-band
  • X-band
  • Ku-band / DBS-band
  • Ka-band

Options:

  • 2-port, 4-port and 6-port
  • Linear or circular polarization
  • Straight or folded
  • PIM specification

Please note that the feed combiners are available in a broad range of different types and configurations. Just contact us with your specific requirements and we will provide you with all necessary details immediately. If a standard feed combiner does not meet your specification, our engineering is at your service to design a customized solution.

Another key competences of ours is the design and production of rigid waveguides for all frequencies. Due to our outstanding infrastructure as well as our highly trained workforce we are able to provide, at very short notice as well, customized high quality waveguides.

Key Features

Whether your specifications are sketched or ready for production is of minor importance. We undertake any necessary design-work, conducted in close cooperation with you and will then manufacture in accordance with our renowned excellent Swiss precision standards. It goes without saying that we deliver any shape, from the simple, straight single component to the highly complex forms of waveguide runs.

MIRAD is proud to have fulfilled every customers technical specifications with precisely designed and manufactured filters, and we strive to continue to do so.

We carry a wide range of standardized products: waveguide and coaxial filters for all typical transmit, receive and harmonic reject filter applications in all RF bands. Furthermore, MIRAD has years of experience in the development and production of filters for channel combination.

Key Features

  • Precise and accurate material simulation
  • Customized combinations of filter-topology for best performance
  • Very low insertion loss
  • Best return loss
  • High stop-band attenuation

In development and production, MIRAD sets high standards through the use of the CNC-machined waveguide structures in split block technique. Our team of highly specialized development engineers, supported by the latest software tools, are keen to challenge your specifications with an elegant and efficient solution that will guarantee electrically and thermally stable filter systems for your daily, uninterrupted use. Do not hesitate, contact us with your specification, however unusual it may be.

Ka-band multihole coupler, X-band cross-guide coupler, Ku-band hybrid coupler, Ku-band branchline coupler

Our wide variety of couplers covers all typical specifications. These high performance products range from simple directional couplers and power splitters/combiners to tailor-made components to meet your individual requirements.

Key Features

  • Exact coupling values
  • High directivity
  • Optimized design in line with your application
  • High precision couplers available

In the development of our standard products, our focus was specifically on the best price-performance ratio. If these couplers do not satisfy your requirements, we are capable of customizing a high quality coupler by combining any necessary coupling value with the best frequency linearity, directivity and return loss in a wide frequency range.

Our wide variety of high grade terminations applicable for small, medium and high power handling as well as high precision measurements, have been developed to enable best possible price-performance ratio for your individual application. The power range of our terminations starts from below 1 W up to 4 kW and above.

Key Features

  • Models with and without forced cooling available
  • High precision terminations for calibration and measurement
  • Excellent return loss
  • Power handling up to 4 kW and above
  • M&C interfaces
  • Control interface compatible to industry standard
Ka-band low power load, C-band medium power load, Ku-band high power load with air cooling

The MIRAD microwave high power terminations are designed to terminate waveguides with a very good return loss within the complete range of waveguide bands. With the integration of the correct termination, the risk of injury through hot surfaces is eliminated. The terminations are pressure tight and outdoor proof. The selection of the correct termination is extremely important to avoid overheating and is driven by the actual power level of your system. Our sales team is more than happy to support you to define the suitable component.

Air Inlet

Soldered C-band air inlet, machined Ku-band air inlet

The MIRAD microwave air inlets are available for all common waveguide sizes and all common flange standards. The air inlets are the indispensible component in every waveguide system and can be combined with an connector defined by the user.

Pressure Window

MIRAD has designed a series of pressure windows optimized for the use in common earth stations where a low overpressure of almost 50 mbar protects the waveguide system against moisture and dirt. Only highest quality grade of materials are used to manufacture each individual pressure window and to maintain the high performance of your entire system. They are available for all common waveguide sizes and flange standards. 

Ku-band and Ka-band pressure windows

Feed Window / Radome

In order to prevent moisture and dirt from entering the feed system, the feed horn aperture is closed with a feed window. Depending on the diameter of the aperture, the frequency and the internal overpressure, different materials have to be used. MIRAD can provide you either with a customized pre-cut of your feed window according to your sketch or with sheets of Kapton™, CoreTex™ or Sefar tissue. Do not hesitate to contact us.
