Data

 

C-RAM SFC-HC is a series of high power broadband honeycomb RF and microwave absorbers made from specially treated pyramidal honeycomb. Using a steep pyramid design, which provides an impedance gradient, C-RAM SFC-HC provides premium performance in anechoic chambers at both normal and off-normal incidence angles.

C-RAM SFC-HC absorbers, with no forced air, can handle up to 10 W/inČ of RF energy with a phenolic coated honeycomb.

Data

 

C-RAM HC is a series of radar absorbing products made from Nomex/phenolic or glass/phenolic honeycomb with a proprietary lossy coating. Typically, Nomex/phenolic is used in most applications. The hexagonal open cell structure provides a high strength-to-weight ratio, making C-RAM HC an ideal material for aircraft parts, such as fairings, covers, and leading edges, which must combine strength, light weight, and low radar cross section. Honeycomb is also ideal for cavity backed spiral antenna applications. The open cells permit forced air cooling, allowing high-power applications. On special order skins can be provided on the core, typically glass, Kevlar, or AstroQuartz skins can be provided. Custom composite shapes are also available per customer drawings.

 

C-RAM HCGR X/Y:

Gradient loaded flat sheets with reflectivity as follows, where X = thickness and Y=reflectivity.

0.500" -15 dB minimum 10GHz to 18 GHz

0.750" -15 dB minimum 8 GHz to 18 GHz

1.000" -15 dB minimum 6 GHz to 18 GHz

 

C-RAM HCGI X/Y:

Gradient loaded flat sheets with insertion loss tuned to customer requirements, where X = thickness in inches and Y = insertion loss in dB/inch. Maximum insertion loss is 20 dB/inch.

 

C-RAM HCUI X/Y:

Uniformly loaded flat sheets with insertion loss tuned to customer requirements, where X = thickness and Y = insertion loss in dB/inch. Maximum insertion loss is 30 dB/inch.

Hollow Pyramidal RF Absorber

 

Data

 

 

C-RAM HPA is a hollow pyramidal RF absorber
designed to provide high levels of absorption in
high power applications. Typical uses include
the hot spots in test rooms or anechoic
chambers where heating due to concentrated
power might damage conventional materials or
lead to danger of smoke and fire. Power
densities of up to 2 W/in2 have been handled
successfully. C-RAM HPA is usually used with
other products such as C-RAM SFC or C-RAM
EVA in an anechoic chamber application.

 

C-RAM HPA consists of lightweight, hollow
pyramids. The pyramids are formed by folding
relatively thin sheets of lossy foam plastic into
shape and bonding them to a foam back panel.
As an option, small vent holes may be bored
through the walls of the absorber, allowing
forced cooling air to be blown through the piece
from behind.

MIL STD 461 RF Absorber

 

Data

 

 

 

The C-RAM SFC-EM product is similar to standard C-RAM SFC pyramidal grades, but having the tips of the pyramids truncated. This saves space in small chambers and provides a more rugged product, eliminating the possibility of tip breakage.

 

C-RAM SFC-24 EM meets the requirements for MIL-STD 461/462G.

 

C-RAM SFC-36 EM and C-RAM SFC-24 EM, in an appropriate combination in a chamber, are an ideal absorber treatment for Immunity Test Chambers (EN 1000-4-3 and equivalent specifications).
