2:1 (100:50) Baluns are useful between 50 ohm coax and 100 ohm balanced lines for loops, cubical quads, log periodics and other antennas where the impedance at the end of the feedline is 100 ohms (1/2 wavelength feedline).
Model SABRE-2-2000 is a 2:1 (100:50) quad core balun used to translate a 50 ohm input to 100 ohms at RF power levels up to 2000 watts PEP when used with a matched load. This assembled balun features a quad core configuration for increased power handling and flatter frequency response to 60 Mhz. With a matched 100 ohm load the SWR over the frequency range 1.8 to 30 MHz is shown in the following table measured with an AIM 4170 network analyzer. Notice that the conversion from 100 to 50 ohms is very consistent from 1.8-31 Mhz and SWR is less than 1.5:1 over the range allowing easy tuning by most radio internal antenna tuners or an external tuner. Graph is for a 2:1 balun often used with delta loop, log periodic or horizontal loop antennas. Input connector is 50 ohm type N (SO-239 also available - inquire).
SABRE-2-2000 is in a NEMA 4x4x2 weatherproof box with mounting flanges at bottom to attach to fixed location (mast, wall, beam antenna, etc.).
Eye bolts and studs are all stainless steel for long life.
