Waveguide switches manufactured by MDL represent the culmination of many years of constant improvement and innovation. Over the years, and in diverse applications, MDL switches have proven to be reliable and to have long life. In addition, they have met the complete electrical and mechanical requirements specified. Each switch uses a non-contacting rotor design for low noise, high isolation, low VSWR, and long life. Each covers the full recommended waveguide frequency range. It can be pressurized and is capable of handling full waveguide power. The solenoid actuated drive mechanism is efficient and thoroughly reliable.
A wide range of options are available in the standard models. Moreover, custom-required features can be incorporated in special models.
