MODELS 9130-500 AND 9230-500
These switches provide high-performance characteristics over a multi-octave frequency range. The model 9130-500 covers the 1 to 18 GHz frequency range while the Model 9230-500 covers the 0.2 to 4 GHz range. This description and operation are the same as that for the Models 9120-500 and 9220-500 SP2T switches.

MODELS 9130T-500, 9130W-500 AND 9230T-500
These switches are non-reflective version of the switches described above.

MODELS 9130AH-500 AND 9130AHT-500
These switches are the same as the 9120AH-500 and 9120AHT-500 except for the number of ports.

SERIES F91 AND F92
The Series F91 and F92 switches are the same as the corresponding Series 91 and 92 models, except the units are equipped with integrated drivers.

SERIES G91 AND G92
These switches are the same as the Series G91 and G92 SP2T switches except for the number of ports.
  • Frequency range (Series 91): 1 to 18 GHz

  • Rise and fall times as fast as 10 nsec
  • Reflective and Non-reflective models
  • Low VSWR and Insertion loss
  • Isolation: up to 60 dB
  • Miniature size, light weight
