SM7000 Series (VXI)

The SM7000 Series microwave switching modules are members of the VXI Technology SMIPII™ family. They offer a modular design allowing custom switching configurations to be easily assembled and modified in the field.

The SM7000 is a single-wide, C-size VXI module, which can support up to six different microwave switches including: a dual SPDT; SP3T through SP6T; transfer switches and passthrough adapters that allow the module to control up to eight externally mounted relays each.
