60-890-010 Mixed Configuration Microwave Switch
Click image to enlarge


The 60-890-010 Microwave Switching Unit has a mixed configuration of 50 Ω RF relays with bandwidths of 18 GHz and 40 GHz, signal connection is by front panel mounted SMA connectors. The unit’s configuration is as follows:
• 5 x SPDT Unterminated 18 GHz Switch
• 1 x SPDT Unterminated 40 GHz Switch
• 7 x SP6T Unterminated 18 GHz Switch
• 3 x SP6T Unterminated 40 GHz Switch
• 1 x SP6T Terminated 40 GHz Switch
The switch has an extremely high level of performance with low VSWR, very high isolation, low loss and high power handling. It is ideal for switching HF to microwave frequencies.

The 60-890-010 occupies 2 U of rack space, providing a compact microwave switching solution. The switches can be used individually or interconnected to create a complex switching system.

Controlling the Switch

This LXI Microwave Switch is controlled through an LXI interface based on 1000Base-T Ethernet. This provides a quick and easy method of installation. It also provides a simple way of controlling it at a remote location through its API or built in soft front panel. The ability to control the unit at a distance aids the testing of systems without the need for a physical presence.
