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 Pull Double Throw) through SP12T (Single Pull 12 Throw). Frequencies for these new RF switches range from DC to 40 GHz depending on the model, operating voltage ranges from +12V to +30V, power ratings range from 5W to 700W 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."

Pasternack's new hi-rel electromechanical relay switches are available today from stock. You can view the new RF switches by visiting Pasternack can be contacted at +1-949-261-1920.
