Overview

The 41-181 Programmable Attenuator Module is available with either one or two independently programmable attenuators in a single width 3U PXI module. Each attenuator uses high reliability mechanical switches to operate binary weight attenuator pads, providing attenuation values from 0 to 63dB in 1dB steps. Attenuator operating time is typically just 5ms, ensuring fast setting times.

Note: For new applications please consider the updated 41-180-021 version of this product.
