Description
The 4101 Model is a bidirectional crossbar (any input connected to any
output at the time) coaxial switching system; operating from DC to 18 GHz.
The system is configured with maximum 10 inputs and 10 outputs, but can
be configured with an number of inputs and outputs (not exceeding the
maximum). This system uses normally open multi-throw switches, meaning
that by default or at power lost all switches are in open state.
Environment
Model 4101 is equipped with front panel LCD/keypad display for manual and
local control, and remotely it can be controlled via Ethernet (ENET) or GPIB.
The LNET version uses a LXI based protocol, which allows the user only to
control the unit remotely and via a web-browser.

Description
The 4166 Model is a bidirectional crossbar (any input connected to any
output at the time) coaxial switching system with an operating frequency
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 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 4301 Model is a bidirectional switching system which operates between
DC to 18 GHz. The system can support up to (12) coaxial SP10T switches
at the maximum in a 4U chassis and (16) coaxial SP10T switches in a 6U
chassis. The switches are mounted independently on the rear panel and are
controlled separately; hence in a blocking configuration.
Control Interfaces
The unit can be controlled manually (locally) via a 4-line (4x40) LCD and
a keypad. Remotely, the system is offered with the choice of three control
interfaces: Ethernet, GPIB, or LXI protocol. Using specific SCPI commands,
one can control each individual SP10T switch. For detailed information,
