JFW - 50BA-057-95 attenuator

Model 50BA-057-95 is a 50 Ohm benchtop attenuator assembly containing two solid-state step attenuators with a range of 0 to 95dB by 1dB steps and operates from 200 MHz to 7125 MHz.

The attenuators can be controlled manually or remotely. Its current attenuation setting is displayed on the front panel for each attenuator. We do label the RF connectors as Input and Output, but the attenuators are bi-directional.

Manual Attenuator Control
On the front panel is one manual lever switch. The lever can be used to adjust the attenuation value up/down. The lever is a momentary type switch so you can “tap to step” or “hold to jog”. As you manually change the attenuation setting of the attenuator you will see its displayed dB value change simultaneously. You will also view any changes that a remotely connected user makes to the dB setting of the attenuator.

Remote Attenuator Control
This attenuator assembly can be remotely controlled via an Ethernet connection or a serial connection (i.e. RS-232). The network interface can be set in either DHCP mode or Fixed Address mode. We ship all new test systems from the factory in DHCP mode. A RS-232 connection to the test system is made using a null modem type serial cable. Baud rates up to 155200 Baud are available.
