The EX72SF is a high-density microwave switching platform that is designed to address applications that demand maximum performance, flexible design options, and an operating range to 67 GHz. Configuration options include self-termination of unused ports and an expected lifetime of > 5 million cycles. Any combination of up to twelve latching building blocks can be housed in a single 2U rack LXI enclosure. Building block topologies include SPDT, SP4T, SP6T, and transfer switches, as well as a 6-line pass-through adapter and 32-bit TTL I/O bus that can be used to drive external circuitry.

To Configure Your Switch Simply Follow These Three Steps:
Step 1 - Start with the EX72SF base unit. It holds up to twelve microwave building blocks in two rack U (3.5") height
Step 2 - Select up to six SPDT and six multiport switches
Step 3 - Contact VTI Instruments for price and delivery

Measurement Integrity, Repeatability, and Long Life
The EX72SF uses relays that employ superior design technology and deliver unmatched isolation, minimal crosstalk and an industry-leading repeatability of insertion loss resulting in a high-degree of confidence in measurement accuracy.

Measurement Performance
The EX72SF platform further drives down the total cost of ownership by providing operating life of > 2 million cycles. With a powerful combination of economical price and outstanding performance, the EX72SF is capable of handling a wide array of application spaces ranging from aerospace and defense to commercial wireless products.

Patented Relay Technology
The EX72SF relays employ a unique design that ensures highly repeatable closures over time. The center conductor profiles are designed with a spherical mating surface that produces a wiping action as the jumper contact mates with the center conductor. The wiping action removes debris that forms between the contacts of electro-mechanical relays and causes measurement instability. The result is a higher degree of confidence in repeatable data throughout the life of the product.
