Redundancy switches provide a standby signal path that is shared among one or several identical paths. The Redundancy Switches can be used to automatically route around failed amplifiers, optical components, receivers, transmission paths, etc.

Relay Switches

RS-1000   1 for N Frequency Range Insertion Loss dB (2) Isolation dB   (3) VSWR   (50 Ω) Control Interface Normal (4)
RS-1000-4-IF 1 for 4 10 - 200 MHz 2.0  80  1.3:1   RS-232/422  
RS-1000-5-IF 1 for 5
RS-1000-6-IF 1 for 6
RS-1000-8-IF 1 for 8
RS-1000-4-LB 1 for 4   950 - 2150 MHz     5.0     70   1.5:1   RS-232/422
RS-1000-5-LB 1 for 5
RS-1000-6-LB 1 for 6
RS-1000-8-LB 1 for 8

NOTES:

  1. The RS-100X consists of two modules, one transmit, one receive.
  2. Insertion Loss is specified end-to-end.
  3. Isolation is specified end-to-end.
  4. The control algorithm is set via dipswitch. Optional Ethernet control is available.
  5. 75 ohm impedance available.
