Irvine, CA - Pasternack, a leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, introduces a new family of in-stock high-rel electromechanical relay switches with designs that range from 2 to 10 million life cycles, making them uniquely qualified for applications including defense and commercial aviation, semiconductor manufacturing, communications, radar, SATCOM, test instrumentation, medical devices and many others.
Pasternack's latest release of hi-rel RF switches consists of 42 unique designs which include 38 connectorized models as well as 4 surface-mount devices that boast a small footprint and lower cost than traditional connectorized packages. A unique patented design of the actuator and transmission link has been optimized for magnetic efficiency and mechanical rigidity which guarantees operation up to 10 million life cycles with excellent repeatability. The rugged MIL-STD-202 qualified construction of each RF relay switch is designed to withstand exposure to sine and random vibration and mechanical shock.
New coaxial electromechanical switches from Pasternack are available in package styles using SMA & N Type connectors and include varieties from SPDT (Single Pole Double Throw) through SP12T (Single Pole 12 Throw). Frequencies for these new RF switches range from DC to 40 GHz depending on the model, operating voltage ranges from +12 V to +30 V, power ratings range from 5 W to 700 W and have high isolation up to 85 dB and low insertion loss of 0.15 dB at 1 GHz. Additional features of these electromechanical relay switches include indicators, a latching actuator, a failsafe actuator and TTL Inputs.
"We are pleased to release one of the industry’s largest off-the-shelf portfolios of electromechanical relay switches," explains Tim Galla, Active RF Components Product Manager at Pasternack. "The patented rugged design features of these RF switches allow up to 10 million life cycles with excellent repeatability, compared to standard electromechanical relay switch designs."
