WIRELINE® and WIREPAC® Quadrature Couplers Now Available from API Technologies

ORLANDO, FL  — April 11, 2013 — API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) (“API” or the “Company”), a trusted provider of RF/microwave, microelectronics, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, announced today it is now offering design patented WIRELINE® and WIREPAC® quadrature couplers.

WIRELINE and WIREPAC couplers consist of a pair of wire center conductors surrounded by a continuous dielectric insulator and shielded by a drawn or extruded outer jacket. The resultant construction has the physical attributes of semi-rigid coaxial cable, and the electrical performance of a precision Transverse ElectroMagnetic (TEM) mode parallel coupled line coupler.

“Developed and patented under one of API’s heritage brands, Sage Labs, these couplers offer independent quadrature output phases, low VSWR (Voltage Standing Wave Ratio), low insertion losses, and high directivity,” said Rebecca McCarron,  API Technologies’ Couplers Product Line Manager. “In addition, these Couplers feature flexibility, small surface volume, varied power handling, and the option of a narrow or octave band.”

WIRELINE is flexible and available in bulk (5 ft. lengths) or cut and trimmed to customer specifications. It is RoHS compliant for tin and bare finishes. WIREPAC is not flexible, and offered in lengths up to 8 in. with square, round, or flanged jackets. Both products are ideally suited for commercial, aerospace, and industrial applications.

Bulk WIRELINE and custom orders for both cut and trimmed WIRELINE and WIREPAC are available through API’s franchised distributor CPN/Denelex. Visit www.cpnelectronics.com or call +1 800 428-4844 for ordering information.
