Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand and a provider of RF, microwave, and millimetre-wave products, has announced the release of its series of ruggedised electromechanical relay switches.

The switches are engineered to ensure dependable RF signal routing for vital applications, spanning a vast range of market bands from DC to 40GHz.

This groundbreaking series comprises 40 switch models and designs. The switches are suitable for numerous market bands, including L, S, C, X, Ku, and K. This provides a wide range of frequency bandwidths and extensive application opportunities.

These switches meet IP64 compliance standards and come with a Level 1 moisture seal. This makes them perfectly suited for customers operating outdoors or where testing might expose them to moisture. This rugged construction ensures durability and dependability across various settings.

The series also delivers outstanding performance, with insertion loss as low as 0.15dB (typical) and isolation levels reaching up to 90dB. This ensures superior signal integrity while minimising signal degradation. Furthermore, they offer diverse actuator options, including latching, failsafe, or normally open actuators, with TTL logic compatibility.

Noteworthy is the switches’ high power handling capability. They can manage power up to 160 watts continuous wave (CW) at 1MHz, guaranteeing reliable performance even in demanding situations.

The hardy electromechanical relay switches are available in compact, MIL-grade, coaxial package designs. They are fitted with SMA, 2.92mm, TNC, or N-Type connectors, depending on the frequency band.

“Pasternack’s unwavering commitment is to provide our customers with robust, reliable, and readily available solutions tailored to their unique requirements. This latest product line exceeds those expectations,” said Kevin Hietpas, Product Line Manager.
