- Extra-Flexible may be used where a more flexible application would prove beneficial.

- MTES = Extra-Flexible / Twistable

- MCES = Extra-Flexible / Non-Twistable

- Electrical: V.S.W.R. specifications shown are full band (frequency range). Lower values are attainable over narrower bandwidths.

- Finish: Flexible waveguide is silver-plated per QQ-S-365.

- Jacket: Flexible waveguide assemblies include a protective molded Neoprene rubber coating to the exterior of the waveguide. An optional polysulfide brush-on jacket may be supplied on all sizes.

EXAMPLE: Part No. MTES42-500-N-12B
“MTES42” is WR42 Extra-Flexible/Twistable brass waveguide.
“500” indicates cover flange at both ends.
“N” indicates a molded Neoprene protective jacket.
“12” indicates 12 inches long.
“B” indicates flange material to be brass.
