Mini-Circuits’ RC-1SP4T-A18 is a general purpose RF switch matrix controlled via either USB or Ethernet-TCP/IP (supports
HTTP and Telnet protocols). The model contains an electromechanical SP4T, absorptive fail-safe RF switch constructed in
break-before-make configuration and powered by +24VDC, with switching time of 25 ms typical. The RF switch operates over
a wide frequency band from DC to 18 GHz, has low insertion loss (0.2 dB typical) and high isolation (85 dB typical), making the
switch matrix perfectly suitable for a wide variety of RF applications.
The RC-1SP4T-A18 is constructed in a compact, rugged metal case (5.5” x 6.0” x 2.25”) with 5 SMA (F) connectors (COM and
ports 1 to 4), USB type B port, standard RJ45 network socket and DC power input. Full software support is provided and can be
downloaded from our website any time at https://www.minicircuits.com/softwaredownload/rfswitchcontroller.html. The
package includes our user-friendly GUI application for Windows and a full API with programming instructions for Windows and Linux
environments (both 32-bit and 64-bit systems). Also included is a 2.7 ft USB cable and AC/DC power adapter. Longer USB cables,
