- Pasternack has introduced a new line of twistable and seamless flexible waveguides operating in the 5.85 GHz to 50 GHz range and covering 10 frequency bands from WR-137 to WR-22.
This range of waveguides is intended for use on DAS systems, base stations, antennas and test instruments.

The twistable models are able to twist in different directions, the twist flex material is wound, interlocking brass that allows it to slide on itself. These flexible waveguides provide VSWR of 1.05:1, insertion loss of 0.15 dB and max power of 1.5 kW.
The seamless models are made of a solid piece of brass that is pressed into shape. These flexible waveguides can be used in pressurized applications, deliver VSWR of 1.07:1, insertion loss of 0.06 dB and max power of 5 kW.
