This comprehensive selection of 12 new double ridge waveguide electromechanical switch models are now available featuring broadband multi-octave frequency coverage spanning 6.5 GHz to 40 GHz in SPDT and optional DPDT configurations. Designs support WRD-650, WRD-750 and WRD-180 waveguide sizes. Impressive typical performance includes 2.5 dB insertion loss, 80 dB isolation and up to 8.5kW power handling capability.
Desirable features include latching self-cut-off actuators, TTL logic, position indicators with manual override, and patented motor drive with arc suppression. These fully weatherized rugged mil-grade packages are designed for 100% humidity exposure across a -40°C to +85°C operating temperatures and support an environmentally-sealed quick-connect DC-control connector with mate.
"Having a comprehensive selection of broader-band, double ridge waveguide electromechanical switch designs in-stock and ready for immediate shipment is critical for RF designers who need only one module for an urgent proof-of-concept or prototype application and can't afford to wait for several months. Typically, other suppliers require a 16 -20+ week lead time and minimum order quantities (MOQs) for these types of products," said Tim Galla, Product Line Manager.
