The 60-891-006 is a compact 50 Ω microwave switching matrix with added loop-back functionallity and a maximum bandwidth of 18 GHz. It is ideal for constructing complex microwave switching systems for many applications. Connection is by high performance rear panel mounted N-type connectors. The 60-891-006 matrix is constructed from interconnected microwave tree multiplexers which alllows the routing of any single input port to any single output port.

Controlling the Matrix

This LXI Microwave Matrix 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.

Easy Repair

The construction of the 60-891-006 permits ease of assembly and maintenance. All the cabling required to create the switching configuration is contained within the unit for a neat solution in a small form-factor.
