Vacuum Switch for MRI, Hyperthermia, and Ablation EquipmentSource: Ducommun Inc.
Ducommun’s series of single-pole, double-throw switches covers the DC to 400 MHz frequency range. The switches weigh just 9 ounces and are ideal for integration into MRI machines as well as hyperthermia and ablation equipment.
These switches have an RF impedance of 50 ohms nominal, a minimum operating life of 1,000,000 cycles, a “break before make” switching sequence, and an operating temperature range of -55oC to +85oC. For more information on the vacuum switch series, download the datasheet.
