Normally open multi-throw broadband coaxial switch

June 18, 2014 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
The series CCR-38 from Teledyne Coax Switches is a broadband multi-throw, electromechanical coaxial switch designed to switch a microwave signal from a common input to any of 10 outputs.

The CCR-38 normally open switch covers frequencies from DC to 12 GHz and is available with 12, 15, 24 and 28 coil voltages.

The expansion of the CCR-38 series reduce switch count from three switches to achieve a SP10T (1 SPDT to 2 SP5T switches), thus being able to offer smaller, price competitive switching systems.

The characteristic impedance is 50 Ohms. The switches are small using a popular connector spacing on a 1.740-inch diameter circle. Each position has an individual actuator mechanism allowing random position selection. This also gives the minimum switching time.

he CCR-38 measures 3.10 x 3.10 x 2.77 inches and have a maximum weight of 9 oz. (255.2g)
