Fairview Microwave Introduces Hi-REL Relay Switches from DC to 26.5 GHz

Fairview Microwave has released a new line of Hi-REL electro-mechanical relay switches that improve system capabilities and simplify the design with a solderless, reliable connection able to withstand the elements, shock and vibration.

The new line of electromechanical relay switches consists of 44 different +12V and +28V designs offered in SPDT, SP3T, SP4T and SP6T configurations that support either latching, failsafe or normally open actuators with usable features such as indicators, terminations or TTL logic. They operate in frequency ranges from DC to 26.5 GHz and feature a D-SUB multi-pin connector interface for secure and reliable DC voltage and command control functions. These switches are designed to be compact and rugged, supporting N-type or SMA connectors. Typical performance includes 90 dB isolation levels and 0.15 dB insertion loss. Power handling capability is rated up to 600 watts. They are highly reliable with an operational temperature of -20°C to +70°C and a rating of up to 5M lifecycles when used in a make before break (cold switching) condition. All models in this line are RoHS and REACH compliant and guaranteed to meet MIL-STD-202 test conditions for vibration and shock.

Typical applications include Hi-REL electronics, commercial aviation, military communications, broadcast systems, medical equipment, SATCOM, test, and instrumentation.
