Waveguide Switches are designed to route extremely high power signals over a narrow bandwidth at low to high frequencies, making them highly applicable to space applications. To meet this market demand, MPG’s Dow-Key expanded its product line and engineering capabilities in 1993, with the acquisition of the Transco Space Qualified Products, augmenting our own industry heritage in Hi-Rel Space programs with an extended line of Waveguide Switching solutions.
Our Waveguide Switches support maximum VSWR ranging from 1.1 to 1.22 with minimum isolation ranges from 55 dB to 60 dB and a max insertion loss from .08 dB to 15 dB, depending on configuration.
Waveguide Switches can be designed to meet customer specifications across the following ranges:
Operating Voltage: 24-30 Vdc
Switching time: 100 ms max. (WR 28 thru WR 90) 200 ms max. (WR 112)
Waveguide Switch Configurations: Waveguide Switch configurations include Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT), Transfer Double Pole Double Throw (DPDT), and a Space Qualified Transfer Double Pole Double Throw (DPDT) Waveguide Switch with the following actuators: latching.
Waveguide Switch frequency: MPG's Waveguide Switches route RF signals over a bandwidth from 7.0 GHz to 62 GHz.
Waveguide Switch features: Our Waveguide Switches support maximum VSWR ranging from 1.1 to 1.22 with minimum isolation ranges from 55 dB to 60 dB and a max insertion loss from .08 dB to 15 dB, depending on configuration.
