A line of hot-switchable variable attenuators is usable in applications through 6 GHz, including in test equipment, signal monitoring systems, and distributed antenna systems (DAS). Available in versions usable through 3 and 6 GHz, and with different connectors—including SMA and Type-N connectors—the variable attenuators can be specified with 0 to 12 dB attenuation in 1-dB steps and with 0 to 40 dB attenuation in 10-dB steps. Since attenuation can be changed on the fly without powering down the system, data can be read continuously, as is the case in measurement and surveillance systems.
