Overview

CAES offers a wide range of precision rectangular waveguide terminations to absorb energy and prevent signal loss within your designs.

With a variety of models supporting virtually all waveguide applications, CAES Waveguide Terminations provide best-in-class VSWR performance and support a variety of frequency ranges. 

CAES' Rectangular Waveguide Terminations portfolio includes low power terminations (precision and short length); low-medium power terminations; medium power terminations and high powered terminations (air cooled and water cooled).

Low Power

Low Power Terminations

CAES Low Power Terminations use custom machined load elements for optimum electrical performance. This series of terminations is designed for low power inputs. VSWR is less than 1.05 maximum over the full waveguide bandwidth.
