DESCRIPTION
The RF424 series relay is an ultraminiature, hermetically
sealed, magnetic-latching relay featuring low intercontact
capacitance for exceptional RF performance from DC-8
GHz. It’s low profile and small size make it ideal for
applications where extreme packaging density and/or
close PC board spacing are required. Due to its minimal
mass, many relays may be used to configure
replacements for bulkier switching solutions at a
substantial savings in weight.These design features make
these unique relays the perfect choice for use in RF
attenuators, RF switching matrices and other RF
applications requiring low insertion loss and low VSWR.
The basic operating mechanism is similar to the TO-5 422
series relay.
The following unique construction features and
manufacturing techniques provide overall high reliability
and excellent resistance to environmental extremes:
PRINCIPAL OF OPERATION
PERMANENT MAGNET
MAGNETIC CIRCUIT B
• Minimum mass components and welded construction
provide maximum resistance to shock and vibration.
• Advanced cleaning techniques provide maximum
assurance of internal cleanliness.
• Gold-plated precious metal contacts ensure reliable,
lowlevel switching.
The RF424 relay is ideally suited for applications where
power dissipation must be minimized. The relays can be
operated with a short duration pulse. After the contacts
have transferred, no external holding power is required.
The magnetic latching
feature of the RF424 series provides a nonvolatile
“memory” capability since the relays will not reset upon
removal of coil power.
The 424D series utilizes discrete diodes for coil
suppression.

enough to break the armature free of
Core B, and snap it into a closed
position against Core A. The armature then remains in this position upon
removal of power from Coil B, but will snap back into position B upon
energizing Coil A. 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.
