The New Series 624 range of Motorised System Attenuators offer high performance at a competitive cost.

Flann’s range of Series 620 Programmable Attenuators have set the standard and found favour for many demanding applications including metrology and high accuracy automated testing such as in the production testing of point to point radios.

Recognising the needs of Applications Engineers looking to undertake measurements where attenuation range and accuracy are less demanding, Flann have introduced the Series 624 System Programmable Attenuators. The units offer high performance and reliability at a modest cost.

The Series 624 Programmable Attenuators utilise the proven rotary vane principle and provide high accuracy over the full waveguide band.

Control is via onboard RS485: other interface control options are also available – details on request.
The units require a 12 volt supply and are supplied with mating connectors.
Weather proofed/Outdoor Models are also available – details on request.
