Four-Port Coupler

A four-port coupler combines and splits four RF signals. The coupler applies to the 3+0/4+0 site scenario, and a single-polarized antenna can transmit a maximum of four RF signals, saving installation space.

Functions and Features

A single-polarized antenna can simultaneously transmit four RF signals using a four-port coupler, saving device deployment costs.

A four-port coupler provides the following functions:

  • In the transmit direction, the four-port coupler combines four RF signals into one RF signal and sends the signal to the antenna.
  • In the receive direction, the four-port coupler divides the RF signal received from the antenna into four RF signals and sends them to four RF processing devices.

Compared with the two-port coupler, the four-port coupler consists of three balanced couplers. Figure 1 shows the working principle of the four-port coupler.Figure 1 Working principle of the four-port coupler 

The four-port coupler is connected to an antenna through separate mounting.Figure 2 Diagram for installing a four-port coupler 


The ports of a four-port coupler include an antenna port, two main tributary ports, and two standby tributary ports.

Figure 1 shows the ports of a four-port coupler.Figure 1 Interfaces of a four-port coupler 

In actual applications, matched loads must be installed on idle ports.

Table 1 describes the ports of a four-port coupler.

Hybrid coupler labels are attached to both hybrid couplers and the packing boxes. The label is used to provide the basic information of the hybrid coupler.

Figure 1 shows the label of a hybrid coupler.Figure 1 Diagram of a hybrid coupler label
