New Electromechanical Relay Transfer Switches from DC to 40 GHz

Fairview Microwave has introduced a line of electromechanical relay transfer switches that cover frequencies from DC to 40 GHz and feature exceptional performance with a low insertion loss and high isolation. The product line consists of 43 unique electromechanical relay transfer switches that can be utilized for numerous applications to increase system level capabilities and help simplify the overall design approach. With two input and two output ports, these coaxial transfer switches can connect two different instruments with two devices under test. Furthermore, these RF switches can be used as “drop-out switches” for signal reversal or to bypass a component under test.

These relay switches are popular in military communications, broadcast systems, SATCOM, test & measurement, and instrumentation applications. Both +12 V and +28 V transfer switch designs offer a variety of features which include latching or failsafe actuators, indicators, self-cut-off, TTL logic, and suppression diodes. Superior broadband performance includes insertion loss as low as 0.2 dB min and isolation greater than 80 dB. Some models feature power handling capability up to 700 Watts (CW) at 1 GHz and many units are RoHS and Reach compliant. Package outlines are compact and ruggedly built, supporting SMA, N-Type, TNC or 2.92 mm connectors.

This family of 43 different high-rel electromechanical relay transfer switches are rated up to 5 million lifecycles and can be utilized for numerous applications to increase system level capabilities and can help simplify the overall design approach.
