Overview:
Dow-Key offers a broad range of solid state switching systems ranging
from 2 MHz (HF-band) up to 2500 MHz (L-band) frequencies. Since the
units are equipped with solid state switches, the switching time is much
faster compared to the coaxial units, but the trade off is in a limited
frequency band; up to L-band. These units are provided with LCD Touch
Screen and with a built in CPU loaded with MS Windows XP Professional
operating system, in contrary to the electromechanical units. If you cannot find what you are seeking, we can custom make solid state switching
systems to your spec.

of DC to 18 GHz. The system is configured with maximum (6) N-type inputs
and (12) N-type outputs, but it can be configured to any number of inputs
and outputs (not exceeding the maximum). Model 4166 offers flexibility in
terms of desired configuration, but also a system with terminated coaxial
switches that latches. Latching switches have the benefit of stop drawing
current after a path has been selected and stays in its last position if a power
loss occurs.
The unit is equipped with front panel LCD/keypad display for manual control,
and remotely it can be controlled via Ethernet (ENET), or GPIB using SCPI
commands. The LNET version uses LXI protocol which allows the user to only
control the unit remotely and offers web-browser control capability. Thus,
the switches are mounted on the front panel and the unit is not equipped
with local control.

The 4169 Model is a bidirectional crossbar (any input connected to any
output at the time) coaxial switching system; operating between DC to 18
GHz. The system is configured with maximum (10) inputs and (10) outputs,
but can be configured to a smaller crossbar matrix as required. The unit is
unique in the sense that both inputs and outputs are terminated with a 50 W
load and it uses latching coaxial switches. These type of switches have the
benefit of stop drawing current after a path has been selected and stays in its
last position if a power loss occurs. Furthermore, the unit is ideal to be used
for testing, since one can easily access the I/O ports (as they are mounted
on the front panel) to connect and disconnect UUTs.

Description
Photo (Top) : 4203-1/12 -ENET rear panel view
Photo (Bottom) : 4203 front panel view
The 4203 Model is a switching system mounted with one single bidirectional
SP12T coaxial switch on the rear panel and has an operating frequency
ranging from DC to 18 GHz. The switch is a CANbus controlled coaxial with
terminated 2W 50 W loads, and is provided with SMA-type connectors.
Environment
The unit is equipped with front panel LCD/keypad display for manual control,
and remotely it can be controlled via Ethernet (ENET), or GPIB. The LNET
version uses LXI protocol, which allows the user to only control the unit via a
web-browser and remotely. Thus, it is not equipped with a local control.

Operating Temperature:
Operating Humidity:
The unit is ideal for those who are considering Model 6101 with a SP12T
CANbus switch, but like to have the coaxial switch mounted internally in a
chassis (and not externally). The tradeoff lies in that Model 5203 is restricted
to a 4U chassis (and cannot fit in 1U) due to the switch size.

Description
The 3095 Model is a Non-blocking Full Fan-Out (any input connected to
any output simultaneously) coaxial switching system with a wide operating
frequency ranging from 100 MHz up to 1250 MHz. The system is configured
with 16 SMA -type inputs and 16 SMA-type outputs.
The uniqueness of this model lies in that it lacks local LCD type control,
whereas it is designed to be operating only remotely either via RS-232,
Ethernet (ENET), LXI (LNET), or GPIB interface. A power switch with a guard
is equipped on the front panel, while all I/Os and interfaces are populate on
the rear panel.

coaxial switches on the rear panel. Model 6101 is fully equipped with
dual power supply, local and remote control interfaces. A 2-line LCD
display and a push-button keypad on the front panel allows the user
to control the switching system locally. The rear panel of the chassis
is populated with (24) CANbus interfaces and with either a RJ-45
(Ethernet interface) or a DP9 male connector (GPIB interface) for
remote control. This ultimate solution requires no assembly time and
is hassle free. All that is needed - plug in selected CANbus switches
(purchased separately) on the rear and autoconfig the unit from the
local LCD control - the system is up and running at no time.
Description
The Build Your Own Matrix solution offers an ideal setup for engineers
who are looking for a low-cost switching solution. It allows the user
to design a switching matrix in any way desired by choosing CANBus
switches per Table 1 together with a package: Silver or Gold Package.
Either package provides both hardware and software that allows the
user to interact and control each individual switch using SCPI commands. Refer to applications notes on software control.
The Silver Package consists of a kit with either ENET or GPIB board,
patch panel, and RJ-11 harness for the CANbus switches. The user
needs to assemble the blocks together to create a communication
interface between CANbus switches (purchased seperately - see
Table 1) and Ethernet (ENET) or GPIB protocols. Kit Model 5188
allows the user to communicated with the RF switches through TCP/
IP protocol over LAN, thus referred to as ENET solution, where on the
contrary the Kit Model 5189 offers a GPIB interface instead. Note
that a +12VDC power supply is required to drive this switch solution
and it is not included.
The draw back with the silver package is that it requires some tedious
time of putting together the pieces and it lacks an enclosed ESD
proofed system. However, it is very beneficial to be used as a partial
solution to a bigger switching design and is ideal to be used within
another design.
In order for the system to distinguish between each CANbus switch,
each switch needs to have its own address. Model 5060 is a unit
that allows the user to program the switches easily with different
addresses. Just plug in the CANbus switch, set a unique binary address via a 8-pin dip-switch, power up the unit, and flip a mechanical
switch. A solid green LED will indicate when the CANbus switch has
been programmed.
It is strongly advised to include Model 5060 in either choice of package. It gives the user total control over how to interface with each
switch at software level, in addition to, providing the user a safety net
to re-program switches as needed.
The Gold Package offers a more sophisticated and cleaner solution
enclosed in 1U chassis that is ready to be used by plugging in
Note: CANbus switches are programmed to a default address by
manufactures and needs to be reprogrammed to unique addresses
before used with any package.

step (takes less than 5 minutes):
1. Plug in the CANbus switch vis RJ-11 cable to the address
box.
2. Power up the box (+12VDC) using any power supplier.
3. Use a 8-bit dip switch to set the address.
4. Flip the programming switch on the box and wait for the
blinking green light to turn solid green.
The photo on the right shows the patch panel that comes with Kit 5188 and Kit 5189, and
how the CANbus switches are connected. The patch panel in turn with go to a +12 VDC power
source, and either to the GPIB or the ENET translator board (provided in respective kit) via
the Phoenix connectors. For more information on how to build your own matrix, refer to the
