RF Limiters are a key component of many RF systems used in a wide range of applications. There are two types of limiters, solid-state and gas discharge. With advancements in technology over time, solid-state limiters have become desirable when considering operating life, costs and environmental impact.
A customer in the commercial Radar industry came to APITech to find a solution for a problem they had with legacy gas discharge limiters. By using this technology, the customer has to dispose and replace the hazardous gas discharge limiters every 10 years. Not only is this an expensive exercise but also damaging to the environment.
APITech replaced the gas discharge limiters with solid-state limiters, and were able to provide the customer with a cost effective, serviceable, repairable solution that provided continuous function without any downtime due to replacement and disposal. As a result of this the customer no longer needs to deal with the hazardous gases associated with gas discharge limiters.
