Transfer, Mechanical Switch, DC - 18000 MHz, 50Ω


Mini-Circuits’ RC-3MTS-18 comprises 3 independently controlled, electro-mechanical transfer switches. Each switch operates over a wide bandwidth from DC to 18 GHz, with high isolation (85 dB typical), low insertion loss (0.2 dB typical) and high input power rating (10W for cold switching). The switches are of a failsafe and break-before-make-configuration, using a patented design which ensures long-term reliability, with a minimum lifetime of 10 million switching cycles when used within the noted specifications.
The switch box is constructed in a compact, rugged metal case (4.5 x 6.0 x 2.25”) with all RF connectors (SMA female) on the front panel. The switches are controlled via USB or Ethernet, allowing control directly from a PC, or remotely over a network.
Full software support is provided, including 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).
