Please contact sales office for availability
The 40-780B-521-E (PXI) and 42-780B-521-E (PXIe) are single failsafe SPDT 18 GHz unterminated microwave relay modules with remotely mounted relays. The 40/42-780B range is available with one, two, three or four SPDT panel mounted relays capable of switching frequencies up to 67 GHz in 50 Ω or 2.5 GHz in 75 Ω. Connections are made via high quality RF coaxial connectors, SMA or N-Type for 50 Ω and 1.6/5.6 in 75 Ω versions. Remote versions can support up to three SPDT relays in a single slot.
The remote versions, as well as occupying less panel space in the case of the triple options, allow the microwave relays to be placed closer to the UUT and RF test equipment. This can shorten the length of cables and improve system performance. Remote multiplexers are supplied with a 1.5 m interface cable.
These PXI/PXIe Microwave relay modules give you the highest RF and microwave switching performance available within
a Pickering switching system. Although designed for microwave applications, they have many uses in the RF spectrum
where extremely low insertion loss and ultra high isolation are critical. They may also be used for lower
frequency RF applications where power handling to 240 W is required (700 W for N-Type options).
