Orthomode Transducers (OMTs) are 3-port microwave waveguide systems that split the input power into two parts (based on polarization separation), consequently, allow the simultaneous operation of two outdoor radio units (ODUs). Since the devices provide high inter-port isolation and low return loss, their application together with high performance antennas lead to use of two independent transmission channels on a single antenna at the same time.
Orthomode transducers separate
horizontal and vertical polarizations
Orthomode Transducers can be directly mounted on antennas that have circular waveguide connector. The interfaces on the ODU side are upon customer's request (coaxial cable connector, standard waveguide flange, ODU interface or any special request).
