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. 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. The tests on this product can be found of the EME144 Kit webpage.
The Relay coil voltage is 5vdc and a 180ohm resistor can be used on the PC board for 12vdc operation.
The Product image shows a fully constructed Kit product. Please refer to the Options Tab for the descriptions of the various products available.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE G6Z RELAYS ARE NO LONGER MANUFACTURED AND KITS ARE AVAILABLE UNTIL SOLD OUT
EME144 KIT is a Basic Kit that includes the PC board, G6Z Relay 5v, 3 x SMA connectors, and a 180ohm resistor. Requires complete construction and soldering of SMD components.
EME144 PCB is only the bare PC board.
Please note that Omron has marked the G6Z relays as discontinued early in 2016 For medium experienced constructors.
