ETS-LINDGREN’S EMSwitch RF SWITCH PLUG-IN CARDS are general purpose multi-channel switch matrixes, used to switch the RF path of equipment for RF measurement applications, including immunity, emissions, and wireless measurements. They are designed for use with ETS-Lindgren’s EMCenter.
EMSwitch plug-in cards are available in several versions:
- Two SPDT Coaxial Relays, 18 GHz
- Four SPDT Coaxial Relays, 18 GHz
- Two SP6T Coaxial Relays, 18 GHz
- One SP6T Coaxial Relay, 40 GHz
- One SPDT Coaxial Relay, 40 GHz
- Two SP6T Coaxial Relays, 40 GHz
- Two SPDT Coaxial Relays, 40 GHz
- Four SPDT Coaxial Relays, 40 GHz
Any combination of EMSwitch plug-in cards are supported.
EMSwitch plug-in cards switch RF signals from DC - 18 GHz, with powers up to 240 W (3 GHz) directly or any RF power switches indirectly. This 19” rack mountable box has an internal power supply to power 12/24/28 VDC relays and can control up to 4 external relays.
EMSwitch is fully supported by TILE!TM, EMQuestTM, and other test automation software packages. Please contact ETS-Lindgren for additional information.
EMSwitch plug-in cards are available in several versions, and can switch RF signals directly or indirectly, dependant upon frequency and power.
The EMCenter can accept multiple plug-in cards like the EMSwitch. For large switching applications, several EMCenters can be daisychained together.
The first relay of the EMSwitch can be used either as a standard relay or as a safety interlock relay. Using this relay as a safety interlock, the RF input to the amplifier can be switched off, preventing personnel from being subjected to radiated RF fields. The RF interlock input can be connected to a switch on the entrance door of the test chamber.
