The 530 Series Manual Waveguide Switches are used for transmission switching applications in millimeter wave systems. These versatile devices provide a variety of switching combinations using three waveguide channels and three positions. In a typical radar application, a three-position switch can be used manually to switch one of two transmitters to a common antenna, while simultaneously connecting the other transmitter to a suitable termination. A manual switch will also provide a convenient means for alternately connecting a test antenna and standard horn to gain-measuring test equipment.
Other frequency bands and custom configurations available.
