EX1200-6101, EX1200-6102, EX1200-6111, EX1200-6216, EX1200-6301, and EX1200-6301T:

  • High-density RF switches and matrices
  • 50 W switching power – highest in class
  • > 3 GHz bandwidth (6301)
  • Stub breaking relays eliminate unterminated stub effect for best switching performance

The EX1200-6101 (10 channels) is a high-density RF SP4T switch modules with ten individual SP4T coaxial trees that are isolated from each other and system grounds to provide a high-fidelity switch path for switching signals in excess of 1.3 GHz. Excellent crosstalk and isolation is maintained by using very short low-loss coaxial runs from the connector directly to the relays. All modules are also configured to avoid any unterminated stub effects, improving overall signal integrity and allowing for high frequency matrix designs and large multiplexer configurations while preserving bandwidth and maintaining low VSWR. The front panel utilizes two high-density, 26-pin coaxial connectors designed for high reliability and low insertion loss. Six of the modules can be accommodated in a 1U EX1200 full rack mainframe to provide a very flexible RF switch network. For example, a single module can be configured through external cabling to provide dual 1 x 16 multiplexers into two channels of a scope, or as a single 4 x 4 RF matrix. The modules can also be combined with other EX1200 switch cards to configure a general purpose subsystem to switch DC to > 1.3 GHz.

The EX1200-6102 is a high-density SPDT RF switch module designed for high-fidelity RF switching applications up to 1.3 GHz. Excellent crosstalk and isolation is maintained by using RF relays with bandwidths in excess of 2.0 GHz along with short, low-loss coaxial runs from connector directly to relays. All modules are also configured to avoid any unterminated stub effects, improving overall signal integrity and allowing for high frequency matrix designs and larger multiplexer configurations while maintaining bandwidth and VSWR.

The EX1200-6111 is an RF SP4T switch modules with five individual SP4T coaxial trees that are isolated from each other and system grounds to provide a high-fidelity switch path for switching signals in excess of 1.3 GHz. Excellent crosstalk and isolation is maintained by using very short low-loss coaxial runs from the connector directly to the relays. All modules are also configured to avoid any unterminated stub effects, improving overall signal integrity and allowing for high frequency matrix designs and large multiplexer configurations while preserving bandwidth and maintaining low VSWR.

For example, a single module can be configured through external cabling to provide a 1 x 16 multiplexer. The modules can also be combined with other EX1200 switch cards to configure a general purpose subsystem to switch DC to > 1.3 GHz.

The EX1200-6216 is a high-density RF switch module configured as dual 1 x 16 coaxial trees that are isolated from each other and system ground to provide a high-fidelity switch path for switching signals in excess of 1 GHz in a 50 Ω environment. On-board jumpers can be added to connect all shields together or to system ground if desired. Excellent crosstalk and isolation is maintained by using very short low-loss coaxial runs from the connector directly to the relays. All modules are also configured to avoid any unterminated stub effects. This improves overall signal integrity and allows for high frequency matrix designs or large multiplexer configurations while preserving bandwidth and maintaining low VSWR. The front panel utilizes two high-density, 26-pin coaxial connectors designed for high reliability and low insertion loss. Six of the modules can be accommodated in a single EX1200 full rack mainframe to provide a very flexible RF switch network. The modules can also be combined with other EX1200 switch cards to configure a general purpose subsystem to switch DC to > 1 GHz.

The EX1200-6301 is designed with SMB male connectors for applications that require RF signal switching greater than 3 GHz in a 50 Ω environment. Excellent crosstalk and isolation performance is achieved by using short low-loss coaxial runs from the connector directly to the relays. All modules are designed to avoid any unterminated stub effects improving overall signal integrity and enabling the construction of larger high frequency multiplexer configurations while maintaining bandwidth and VSWR. Six of the modules can be accommodated in a single EX1200 full rack mainframe or combined with other switch modules to create a flexible switching configuration that can cover a wide range of applications.

The EX1200-6301T is designed with SMB male connectors for applications that require RF signal switching greater than 3 GHz in a 50 Ω environment. Excellent crosstalk and isolation performance is achieved by using short low-loss coaxial runs from the connector directly to the relays. All modules are designed to avoid any unterminated stub effects improving overall signal integrity and enabling the construction of larger high frequency multiplexer configurations while maintaining bandwidth and VSWR.

EX1200-6216HV:

  • High-density coax switch
  • Switch signals up to 500 V and 250 MHz
  • Star configuration allows any channel to be connected to any other channel

The EX1200-6216HV is an RF switch module designed in a star configuration. A star switch allows any channel to be connected to any other channel. This configuration approach also allows for the creation of simple matrices (i.e. 8 x 1 x 8). Additionally, for applications that require the switching of high voltage probes or transient power supply signals, the EX1200-6216HV provides the capability of switching up to 500 V and up to 250 MHz. This module can only be used in an EX1208 or EX1268A mainframe.


EX1200-7100:

  • Switch signals DC to 26.5 GHz
  • Microwave building blocks are pluggable from the front
  • Building blocks range from dual SPDT relays to SP6T relays, transfer switches and relay drivers
  • Competitively priced to suit OEM/system integration model
The EX1200-7100 is a high-density microwave switch module carrier designed to work with EX1200 mainframes. It complements the EX1200 platform with the configurable microwave switch modules that provide high switching density. Each carrier can accommodate three specially designed miniature microwave relays of up to 26 GHz. Each microwave switch is “pluggable” from the front allowing for easy configuration and maintenance. The EX1200-7100 functions as a relay driver for controlling external microwave relays that exceed available space in the EX1200 mainframe. Each EX1200-7100 allows for 8 control lines compatible with 24 V logic. The EX1200-7100 module occupies the equivalent slot space of two plug-in-modules and can be mixed and matched with other EX1200 plug-in modules to configure high-density customized switching solutions. Up to 54 switch points can be switched within a 1U rack space in the EX1206 mainframe, as an example, providing exceptional density without degrading signal integrity. Competitively priced, the EX1200-7100 series can reduce the cost of microwave switching by at least 20% from existing solutions and satisfy lower frequency cellular switching market needs.
