The 60-803-816 from Pickering Interfaces is a 4-to-1 SP4T Microwave Multiplexer with up to 16 independent banks. This multiplexer has an LXI interface and is suitable for switching 50 ohm signals up to 67 GHz. The multiplexer is available in 18/26.5/40/50/67 GHz frequency options and is also available in a terminated version with up to 14 banks of 4 channel multiplexers. It can handle an RF power of up to 40 W, has an insertion loss of less than 1.7 dB and provides isolation of more than 50 dB. The multiplexer is ideal for constructing complex microwave switching systems for many applications.
The 60-803-816 is controlled through an LXI interface based on 1000 Base-T Ethernet which provides a quick and easy method of installing it and a simple way of controlling the multiplexer 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. It is LXI Standard 1.4 compliant and has LXI status indicators on its front panel. The multiplexer has an LCD display and is available in a 2U/3U rackmount chassis with SMA connectors.
The multiplexer can operate on both AC and DC supply. It requires a DC supply of 100 V, consuming under 1 A of current or an AC supply of 90-120/200-240 V at 50-60 Hz.
