2.6GHz Relay Kit
This Relay Kit is suitable for switching RF from DC to 3.4GHz, and has a low loss and high 50ohm return loss. The Omron G6Z-1F-A-DC5 Relay is specified for up to 10Watts @ 900MHz, but has been used to reliably switch up to 20Watts FM on 1.2GHz.
Relay coil voltage is 5vdc and a 180ohm resistor can be used on the PC board for 12vdc operation. The tests on this product can be found of the EME141 Kit webpage
We have tested this product with 50 Watts on both the 2m and 70cm bands, and found no evidence of heating due to losses. We cannot however guarantee reliability when using this relay at these high power levels over time, and suggest that it is not hot RF switched to avoid damage.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS KIT IS NOW SUPPLIED WITH A 5VDC RELAY AND 180ohm RESISTOR FOR 12VDC OPERATION.
- Return Loss: 34dB @ 430MHz, 27dB @ 1.3GHz, 15.5dB @ 2.5GHz, 15dB @ 3.4GHz
