Product Overview

The 8052 is an Air Trimmer Capacitor it is designed specifically for VHF through microwave and have become the industry standard of excellence. High Q and temperature stability are a result of proper attention to geometry and choice of optimum materials. The heart of this trimmer is the one piece self-locking constant drive mechanism . This mechanism utilises transverse slots to create a spring effect between two threaded sections resulting in substantial contact areas which insure uniform torque, high 4 and low dynamic tuning noise.

Long rotational life>10⁶MΩ Insulation resistance
