This RF switch has been designed to attenuate the RF transmit signals up to 12dB or to a reduced power level of 6.3% of the original power. It’s particularly well suited for the oil and gas industry.
When flammable gases and vapors are present, transmitting at full power greatly increases the likelihood of an explosion. During these emergency times there is a need to maintain minimal communications with the affected site. By turning off the DC power to the Safe-Guard RF Switch, the transmit power defaults to the reduced level.
