Product Overview

The Murata MVM010 is equivalent to the Johansen 5202 it is an Air Trimmer Capacitor designed specifically for VHF through microwave and has 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.

For datasheet copy and paste:

These came to us as part of a lot of surplus stock from a large ‘Milspec’ type Co. having been in storage for some time we have classified them as ‘new other’. They are in fact unused and will function to their full specification.

We Purchase Surplus Stock!!!

If you or your company has items similar to the above, or indeed any electronic components surplus to requirements, please contact us with details as we are keen to increase our stock profile.

 As many of our lines come in to us as surplus – sometimes from high end ‘Milspec’ type manufacturers we try to pass on our savings to our customers – often selling industrial grade or military spec components at a fraction of their original cost.
