The Bobcat Hydraulic Coupler is available both as a factory installed option and as an aftermarket product for use with all the pin-on fitting attachments for the E25 to E55 excavators.
These waveguide couplers are used for signal sampling and other general purpose applications in wireless transmit/receive systems, satellite communications, radar systems, point-to-point backhaul and telecom.
In situations where it is not possible to fully curl the attachment, a bypass function is available to release the locking system on the quick coupler.
According to the contract, CPI's Beverly Microwave Division will offer an initial quantity of power couplers to the European XFEL over a 12-month period, with the potential for additional power couplers at a later date.

Unbolt and lower the kingpin coupler weldment from the tanker following the instructions in the TM that supports your model.
Compared with the transmission-line type CRLH coupler, the couplers we proposed not only can achieve arbitrary coupling level, but also can take advantage of fully planar fabrication techniques, because no vias are needed in the structure.
Therefore, the branch-line couplers as the key components of it and several functions are required simultaneously, such as dual-band operation, arbitrary coupling levels, and inherent impedance transforming.
Recently, several design techniques have been reported for size reduction and harmonic suppression, such as rat-race couplers with defected ground structure (DGS) and micro-strip resonant cells [7-11] and branch-line couplers using slow-wave structure [12-14].
Although designed for use in a wide variety of wireless communications applications, the power handling capabilities, expansive frequency range, and miniature size of our new thin-film 10W 3dB couplers makes them especially attractive for portable communications devices, as this particular market segment continues to demand smaller and smaller components in order to keep pace with consumers' demands for the smallest and sleekest portable technology available," said Larry Eisenberger, senior marketing application engineer at AVX.

Since automatic couplers in railway carriages are loaded with varying forces and those as shown above cause stresses exceeding the proportional limit, therefore to investigate the cyclical properties of the material stress, limited loading was chosen during which strains are unlimited and proceed freely, so damage modes depend on loading level.
