We now have waveguide switches! Posted on 22 Jun 06:04

In the effort to expand our offerings to customers, we have gone from waveguide, to adapters, and most recently waveguide switches. These are crucial if you are wanting to set up a redundancy system. A waveguide switch has 4 ports. In a small system you would do the following:

  • attach a BUC to ports 1 and 3 using a bend or short piece of flex
  • attach a termination directly to port 2
  • attach a piece of flex to port 4 which will go from your switch to the antenna feed

In the initial position of the switch the BUC on port 1 will transmit to the antenna on port 4, and your BUC on port 3 will tranmit into the termination on port 2.

When a switch happens the BUC on port 3 will transmit to the antenna on port 4 and the BUC on port 1 will tranmit into the termination on port 2.

We have manual and automatic switching solutions. Please contact us for more details.
