  • PXI Dual SP6T Multiplexer 26.5GHz 50, SMA-2.9

    40-785B-532 - Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    The 40-785B range of PXI Microwave Multiplexers are available as a single or dual 6-channel panel mounted multiplexer with relays mounted on the front panel. The single slot version can support up to three supplied remotely mounted multiplexers. The single slot remote multiplexer versions occupy less PXI panel space and allow the microwave relays to be placed closer to the UUT and other RF test equipment. In some applications it can shorten the length of RF cable runs and improve system performance. The remote multiplexers are supplied complete with a 1.5m interface cable. These PXI Microwave multiplexer modules are suitable for constructing complex microwave switching networks and provide a range of switching configurations to suit most applications. Connection is by high performance SMA, SMA-2.9 and SMA-2.4 connectors for 50 versions. These modules offer high RF & Microwave performance with applications mainly in the Microwave region, however there are many uses in the RF spectrum where extremely low insertion loss and ultra-high isolation are critical.

  • PXI Dual 3-Channel 30A Solid State MUX

    40-667-011 - Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    The 40-667 is a high current multiplexer available in dual 3-channel or single 6-channel configurations occupying two slots of PXI chassis. Each multiplexer switch uses a fully isolated solid state relay which has been designed to offer fast operation under hot switching conditions and high inrush current with no operational life degradation.Each multiplexer channel can support 30A of continuous current and switch up to 40V signals. The switches can sustain inrush currents in excess of 120A. AC or DC signals can be switched since the switch is polarity insensitive.Note: The 40-666-011 supersedes the 40-666-001 which is functionally the same but with some changes in specification. A data sheet for the 40-666-001 can be found in the 40-666/667 User Manual.

  • Quad 4 to 1 50 600MHz PXI RF Multiplexer

    40-760-004 - Pickering Interfaces Ltd.

    This 4 to 1 multiplexer is part of a range of RF multiplexers available in the following configurations: dual, quad and octal 4 to 1, single, dual and quad 8 to 1, single and dual 16 to 1 and single 32 to 1. All multiplexers have the option of automatic terminations which offer advantages at system level by reducing the presence of standing waves in the system which can cause degradation in isolation and crosstalk. These RF multiplexers exhibit low insertion loss and VSWR through the use of modern RF relay technology at an affordable cost. Each MUX has been carefully designed to ensure excellent and repeatable RF characteristics to frequencies of 600MHz with each path having a nominally equal insertion loss. The injection of noise and unwanted signals into the signal paths has been minimized by careful attention to the mechanical and electrical design. User connections are made via SMB connectors; you can find the associated RF cable & connector accessories data sheet under the downloads tab above.
