Another year is drawing to a close, which means it’s time, once again, for RF Globalnet’s favorite — and easily our most popular — newsletter, the Top 10 edition. Now in its ninth year, the Top 10 is our annual look back at the news, articles, editorials, products, and downloads that you, our readers, clicked on the most. Take a moment to scan through the headlines, read (or re-read) any items of interest, and reflect on the year that was. From the entire RF Globalnet team, thanks for the role you played in making this newsletter possible. We wish you a very happy holiday season and look forward to serving you in the New Year!
Safe-Guard RF Switch Designed For The Oil And Gas Industries
The Safe-Guard RF Switch is designed to attenuate the RF transmit signals up to 12dB or to a reduced power level of 6.3 percent of the original power. 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, so by turning off the DC power to the Safe-Guard RF Switch the transmit power defaults to the reduced level.
