New Electromechanical Relay Switches Are Designed for Dependable RF Signal Routing
Pasternack has announced the release of its innovative series of ruggedized electromechanical relay switches. The switches are engineered to ensure dependable RF signal routing for vital applications, spanning various market bands from DC to 40 GHz.
This groundbreaking series comprises 40 unique switch models and designs. The switches are suitable for numerous market bands, including L, S, C, X, Ku, and K. This provides a wide range of frequency bandwidths and extensive application opportunities.
These switches meet IP64 compliance standards and have a Level 1 moisture seal making them ideally suited for customers operating outdoors or where testing might expose them to moisture. This rugged construction ensures durability and dependability across various settings.
The series also delivers outstanding performance, with insertion loss as low as 0.15 dB (typical) and isolation levels reaching up to 90 dB. This ensures superior signal integrity while minimizing signal degradation. Furthermore, they offer diverse actuator options with TTL logic compatibility, including latching, failsafe, or normally open actuators.
Noteworthy is the switches’ high power handling capability. They can manage power up to 160 watts continuous wave (CW) at 1 MHz, guaranteeing reliable performance even in demanding situations.
The hardy electromechanical relay switches are available in compact, MIL-grade, coaxial package designs. Depending on the frequency band, they are fitted with SMA, 2.92 mm, TNC, or N-Type connectors.
“Pasternack’s unwavering commitment is to provide our customers with robust, reliable, and readily available solutions tailored to their unique requirements. This latest product line exceeds those expectations,” said Kevin Hietpas, Product Line Manager.
