Waveguide Calibration Kits. Mega Industries produces Waveguide Calibration Kits in sizes ranging from WR-28 to WR-2300. Mega Industries offers a complete line of waveguide precision Calibration Kits for use with Vector Network Analyzer systems.
Traditional calibration kits utilize three impedance standards and one transmission standard to fully effect a full two port calibration. The standards normally used are Short, Open, Load and a Through connection resulting in the common “SOLT Coaxial Calibration Kit”. Unlike Coaxial kits, where a “calibrated short” and “calibrated open” are readily achievable, waveguide calibration kits utilize Offset Short-Circuit sections to represent these two parameters. The length of the offsets, which are set as λ/8 and 3λ/8 long, are designed to provide a balanced phase response over the waveguide operating frequency range. Mega also provides a precision waveguide sliding load to provide optimum performance over the complete waveguide band. Since waveguide flanges mate together, a special through connection is not required resulting in the Short Short Load (SSL) Style Waveguide Calibration Kit.
In addition, Mega provides precision Coaxial to Waveguide Transitions, which typically display a VSWR of better than 1.15:1 over the complete waveguide band and better than 1.10:1 over more than 80%. This provides for extreme accuracy when measuring low insertion loss devices.
Also offered by Mega is the Thru Reflect Line (TRL) two port calibration kit, which utilizes 3 standards to define the calibrated reference plane. Precision waveguide to coaxial transitions are used in conjunction with a “flush” Short circuit plate and a precision λ/4 waveguide section designed to provide a balanced phase response over the waveguide operating frequency range.

Mega produces a comprehensive line of high power, low frequency rigid and flexible waveguide products and accessories ranging in sizes from WR28 through WR2300. Larger sizes are offered through WR5900 upon special request.
Mega Industries waveguide calibration kits are typically manufactured from 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, however, sizes WR090 through WR650 are available in either copper or aluminum alloys. Waveguide flanges and gaskets are provided in accordance with EIA and Military Specifications.
Mega Industries waveguide calibrations kits are manufactured to precise tolerances calculated to provide optimum VSWR and maximum power handling capabilities.
In addition to waveguide calibration kits, Mega offers a complete line of components to complete or refurbish your systems. These include flexible waveguide, miter bends, sweep bends, quadrature hybrids, magic tees, folded tees, series and shunt tees, transformers, transition, gas barriers, couplers, terminations, circulators, phase shifters and tuners.
