Remote magnetron control

Need information on wiring and or ferrite beads to move only the magnetron from a home microwave 8 or ten feet.

Hello @philfranthomas3,

Welcome to the DigiKey forum.

Please help me understand your project. Are you asking about:

A) remote control circuitry to electrically activate a magnetron
B) moving the magnetron itself and then transmitting the RF energy

If you are looking for A we have many solutions that we can explore. If B, our options are limited as the high frequency magnetron energy must be transferred using a waveguide (similar to those used for radar installations.

Please tell us more about your application. Looking forward to you responce.

Best wishes,
