The 40-782B-531 (PXI) and 42-782B-531 (PXIe) single transfer switches are part of our range of PXI microwave switching modules. They have a characteristic impedance of 50Ω and a maximum operating frequency of 26.5GHz. Connections are made via front panel mounted high quality SMA coaxial connectors.

Transfer switches have four ports with two possible switch states. In the default (de-energized) state, ports 1 to 2 and 3 to 4 have signal paths between them. In the energized state the signal paths are between ports 1 to 3 and 2 to 4 (see diagrams on data sheet).

Applications are mainly in the microwave region, however there are 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 240W is required.
