76 Series, Loop Kits

76 Series, Cavity Filter Loop Kits allow the same cavity shells to be configured for different responses in order to suit different application needs.

Bandpass
The Bandpass cavity passes one narrow band of frequencies and attenuates all others with increasing attenuation above and below the pass frequency. It is equivalent to a parallel-tuned circuit and is most often used for general transmitter spurious clean-up or a sharpening of a single receiver front end selectivity with or without amplification. TX RX bandpass cavities (4", 6", 8” and 10") have adjustable selectivity characteristics (rotatable loops) to allow a trade-off between insertion loss (0.5--3.0 dB) and selectivity. Maximum power handling is typically determined by insertion loss setting

T-Pass®
T-Pass® is a variation of the Bandpass cavity used for our expandable multicoupler applications. Its general characteristics are nearly identical to a bandpass cavity but the output loop has a pair of N-connectors so it can easily be coupled to other channels.

Series-Notch®
The Series-Notch® passes a relatively wide band of frequencies while rejecting a very narrow band of frequencies. It is equivalent to a series-tuned circuit. Notch depth is variable from 15 - 25 dB. Pass and notch frequencies must be known so that the optimum loop assembly can be used. This is the best filter for very close separations (200 KHz to 400 KHz) in UHF applications.

Vari-Notch®
The Vari-Notch® design passes a relatively narrow band of frequencies and rejects (notches out) a relatively wide frequency band. Equivalent to a combination series-tuned and parallel-tuned circuit, this filter has a greater notch depth than the Series- Notch® design. The notch depth is adjustable but varies with passband insertion loss (0.3dB or 0.6dB typical) and the difference between pass and notch frequencies. Vari-Notch® is ideal for moderately close to wide separations (400 KHz and greater) in UHF applications.

Cascading Filters
All cavity types mentioned above may be cascaded to achieve an arithmetic sum of individual filter attenuation. Up to 6 dB of additional attenuation can be achieved when the proper length of cable is used to interconnect the cavities. (This additional 6 dB does not occur in the filter passband but only at frequencies where moderate to high attenuation occurs.) A TX RX system specialist can assist you in ordering the proper length of interconnecting cable for your frequencies.
