Mini-Circuits’ RC-3MTS-40 comprises of three independently controlled, electro-mechanical transfer switches. Each switch operates over a wide bandwidth, from DC to 40 GHz with high isolation (70 dB typical), low insertion loss (0.5 dB typical) and high input power rating. The switches are of a fail safe and break-before-make-configuration using a patented design which ensures long-term reliability, with a minimum life time of 2 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 2.92mm(f) RF connectors 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).
