Swift 1+1 Redundancy Switch Module with Standby Inputs and Outputs - DC to 40 GHz


  • Description

    Model SWF-G1S-QX-108A is a Falcon 1:1 latching RF redundancy switch module with standby inputs and outputs for use in a 1U Genus chassis alongside Falcon frequency converter modules.

    Covering an Input/Output frequency range of DC to 40 GHz.

    Integrated Converter Redundancy - each Falcon redundancy module uses 6 slots per 1U Chassis, to be used alongside our Falcon upconverter and downconverter modules.

    Offering hot-swap & field-replaceable 1+1 frequency converter redundancy, entirely contained in a 1U converter chassis. Without the need for a separate chassis for the redundancy switch.

    Converter Redundancy Options -  1+1 or 2+1 redundant configuration options (with standby input / output) are available in the Falcon redundancy switch range.

    Resilience - the redundant switch module is hot-swap & field replaceable by the user, minimising downtime. For full RF specifications, please check the datasheet.

  • Benefits
    • Integrated redundancy within the Falcon RF converter chassis - each module is 6 slots wide
    • Can have up to 3 block or agile, up or down converter modules and 1 redundancy module in a 1U chassis
    • Only 1 chassis is required for frequency conversion & redundancy.
    • Eliminates the requirement for a 2nd redundancy chassis - saving rack space and power
    • 1+1 redundancy or 2+1 redundancy switch module options depending on the application


  • Configurations

    Each Falcon conversion chassis has 17 module slots.

    2 slots are required for mandatory 10MHz reference source and fan.

    Leaving 15 module slots for other RF modules.

    Depending on the configuration the chassis can house up to 5 conversion modules or 3 conversion modules and a redundancy switch.

    Maximum converter module capacity in the chassis is dependent upon the application required.

    Module sizes

    • 1 slot wide - for 10MHz reference source 
    • 1 slot wide - for fan
    • 3 slots wide - for Falcon Up/Down Conversion modules
    • 6 slots wide - for Falcon Redundancy Switch modules
