Overview

The 40-784B-122-E (PXI) and 42-784B-122-E (PXIe) are dual SP4T 18GHz unterminated microwave multiplexers with remotely mounted relays. The 40/42-784B range is available with single, dual or triple, SP6T or SP4T multiplexers with front panel mounted or remotely mounted relays.

The single slot remote multiplexer versions occupy less PXI panel space and allow the microwave relays to be placed closer to the UUT and other RF test equipment. In some applications it can shorten the length of RF cable runs and improve system performance. The remote multiplexers are supplied complete with a 1.5m interface cable.

These PXI/PXIe Microwave multiplexer modules are suitable for constructing complex microwave switching networks and provide a range of switching configurations to suit most applications. Connection is by high performance SMA or SMA-2.9 connectors.

These modules offer high RF & Microwave performance with applications 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.
