ERI Improves Its 3 dB FM Hybrid Hardware

Two new models to be shown in Las Vegas

Electronics Research Inc. plans to introduce two improved 3 dB FM Hybrid models at the NAB Show.

“The HY0241 and HY0244 are now available with a broader array of port sizes, have improved power handling and minimal variation in coupling ratio across the FM band,” the company announced.

 The HY0241Series 3.0 dB FM Hybrid Splitter/Combiners includes models that handle up to 120 kW at the combined output (2 x 60 kW). They can be supplied with any combination of port connections from 1-5/8-inch inch to 6-1/8-inch. 

“They are most often used in ERI’s constant impedance FM channel combining systems and as a power combiner to combiner multiple FM transmitter cabinets for increased transmitter power,” it said.

The HY0244 is a 90-degree 3-dB Hybrid Coupler with higher power handling capability. They are available with any combination of port sizes from 3-1/8-inch to 9-3/16-inch. ERI said the HY0244 is most commonly used as the output hybrid for a constant impedance FM module in large multi-channel combiner systems. Power handling is dependent on flange selection. Models are available to handle up to 300 kW at the combined output.

For both models, the standard configuration is a “cross-over” design. The input port opposite the combined output lags the other input by 90 degrees. “Non-cross-over” versions are also available. They are constructed of lightweight aluminum and can be designed with coupling ratios other than 3.0 dB. Power handling is dependent on flange selection.
