Threshold Detector Series from Pasternack

This threshold detector series covers broadband frequency bands from 2 to 40 GHz. Threshold detector designs incorporate gain stages for higher dynamic range that cover input power levels ranging from -45 dBm to 0 dBm. Typical detector threshold variation over frequency of ± 0.5 dB.

One detector model supports a fixed threshold while the other 2 detectors support an adjustable threshold setting. All models feature a TTL compatible video output response which is “1” when the RF signal is above the threshold setting. The detector TTL compatible video output response is “0” when it’s below the threshold setting.

Additional features of these threshold detectors include rugged construction utilizing compact packages. Pasternack threshold detector series uses field replaceable SMA or 2.92mm connectors. The models are designed to meet MIL-STD-202F environmental conditions for temperature cycle, humidity, shock, vibration and altitude.

Our threshold detectors also boast extremely fast response times ranging from 45 to 100 nanoseconds, maximum input power handling ranging from +10 to +17 dBm, and have an operating temperature range of -55 to +85 degrees Celsius. As with the other over 40,000 RF, microwave and millimeter wave Pasternack components, our RF threshold detectors are in-stock. Not only are the RF detectors in stock, they ship the same day as purchased.
