Electromechanical Relay Switch Components Product Line Becomes Part of the Largest In-Stock Inventory

We have expanded and now have a large portfolio of in-stock general purpose RF electromechanical relay switches for a wide range of applications. The recent electromechanical relay switch expansion covers many RF, microwave and millimeter wave applications. These new electromechanical RF  relay switches are uniquely qualified for use in numerous applications including military communications, radar, commercial and military aviation, SATCOM, test & instrumentation, medical equipment and others.
The newest electromechanical relay RF switches consist of 134 connectorized designs that are guaranteed for 1 million life cycles. These new general purpose electromechanical relays complement Pasternack’s existing family of 2M to 10M life cycle high reliability electromechanical relay switches, making the our in-stock RF switch portfolio the largest in the industry. These RF relay switches are available in a variety of different connector options including SMA, Type N, TNC and 2.92mm. The new Pasternack relays are offered in popular configurations such SPDT, DPDT, SP4T, SP6T, SP10T and Transfer electromechanical switches. Additional features available on specific RF relay models include latching actuators, failsafe actuators, indicators, TTL controls, terminations, pulse latching and hot switching.
The new general purpose electromechanical relay switches from Pasternack cover frequency ranges from DC to 46 GHz and have power ratings ranging from 10 Watts to 275 Watts. These RF relay switches also boast high isolation up to 80 dB, switching speeds ranging from 15 ms to 50 ms and low insertion loss ranging 0.2 dB to 0.6 dB. All electro-mechanical relay switch materials and finishes are in accordance with applicable MIL standards.
