Mini-Circuits’ RCM-1SP8T-12 is a software controlled, electro-mechanical SP8T switch box. The switch operates over a wide bandwidth, from DC to 12 GHz, with high isolation and low insertion loss. The absorptive switch is of a failsafe and breakbefore-make-configuration, with a minimum lifetime of 5 million switching cycles per switch position, when used within the noted specifications.
The switch box is constructed in a compact, rugged metal case (8.25 x 8.25 x 4.25”) with SMA (f) RFconnectors on the front panel. The switch is 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).
