Switching unit

GTS2081

This unit is equipped with different relays and is used for the switching of signals in the frequency range DC … 12.4 GHz.

Design

The switching unit is housed in a 3 U 19“ subrack with very good RF shielding and consists of the following sub-assemblies:

-    relay SP4T
-    relay SP8T
-    control logic
-    power supply

All the necessary signal, power supply and earthing connections are provided at the rear.
The mains switch is located on the front panel.

Control

The unit is controlled via a remote control unit
(D-Sub 15-pin).

Special features

The I/O boards are monitored in a processor routine.
A status string can also be requested at any time via the control interface.
The unit is constructed using a modular approach utilising 19” plug-in sub-assemblies which enable ease of installation and maintenance.
