DESCRIPTION
RF180
The Series RF180 relay is an ultraminiature, hermetically
sealed, magnetic-latching relay featuring extremely low
intercontact capacitance for exceptional RF performance
over the full UHF spectrum. Its low profile height and .100"
grid spaced terminals make it ideal for applications where
extreme packaging density and/or close PC board spacing
are required.
• All welded construction.
• Unique uniframe design provides high magnetic efficiency
and mechanical rigidity.
• High force/mass ratios for resistance to shock and vibration.
• Advanced cleaning techniques provide maximum
assurance of internal cleanliness.
• Gold-plated precious metal alloy contacts ensure reliable
d.c. switching from dry-circuit to 1/4 amp, as well as low
and stable insertion loss in RF applications.
The RF180 design has been optimized for use in RF
attenuators, RF switch matrices, and other applications
requiring magnetic latching, high isolation, low insertion loss
and low VSWR.
The RF180 relay is ideally suited for applications where
power dissipation must be minimized. The relays can be
operated with a short-duration coil voltage pulse. After the
contacts have transferred, no coil power is required.
Unique construction features and manufacturing techniques
provide high reliability and excellent robustness to
environmental extremes.
The magnetic-latching feature of the RF180 provides a
nonvolatile memory capability, since the relays will not reset
upon removal of coil power.

armature free of Core A, and
snap it into a closed position against Core B. The armature remains in this
position upon removal of power from Coil A, but will snap back into position
A upon energizing Coil B. Since operation depends upon cancellation of a
magnetic field, it is necessary to apply the correct polarity to the relay coils
as indicated on the relay schematic.

When latching relays are installed in equipment, the latch and reset coils
should not be pulsed simultaneously. Coils should not be pulsed with less
than rated coil voltage and the pulse width should be a minimum of three
times the specified operate time of the relay. If these conditions are not
followed, it is possible for the relay to be in the magnetic neutral position.
