Vortex V-RAT 6 Port Antenna Switch

Vortex proudly present a brand new product for 2018. During the past year we have been busy developing a top-end remote antenna switch and with the assistance of a professional UK RF design company, we are pleased to announce our 2018 ‘Vortex V-RAT 6 Port Antenna Switch’. The V-RAT (Vortex Remote Antenna Switch) has been designed as a heavy duty antenna switch, being able to switch up to 6 selectable output ports from a single input.

The design criteria was that it could handle plenty of power and have extremely good port-to-port isolation. As with all Vortex products, we’ve taken a no-compromise approach.

Take a look at the features.

Relays: 12 high-power custom relays 30A ganged/bridged
(2 poles x 15A per pole, 2 relays per port)
Frequency coverage: 1-30Mhz (HF)
Power Rating HF: 5kw
Unused ports: When power is ‘On’ – All un-used ports are open – main center feed only
Grounding: When power is ‘On’ – all ports are grounded (Common ground)
No power to unit: All ports are open – main center feed only
No power to unit: Earth and Grounding – all ports are grounded (Common ground)
Input/Output RF connectors: SO239 chassis mounted sockets (With PTFE dielectric) as standard
Input/Output RF connectors: Optional ‘N’-Type sockets
(With PTFE dielectric) for higher power
PCB Design: Impedance controlled design (50 ohms) for lower SWR and improved matching
Port to Port Isolation: Typical over 65db
Control Line Hardware: 2 x Weipu SP17 7-pin line plugs included
Relay Box Construction: 2mm Aluminium Control box – coated with silk screen graphics and logos
Shack Switch Box Construction: 2mm Aluminium Control box – coated with silk screen graphics and logos
Port Switching Connectors: Professional Weipu SP17 7-way rated at IP68 (100% waterproof) for the control lines (included)
Supply Voltage: Operates from a nominal 13.8v DC supply (variable depending on cable length from switch to relay box).
Surge Protection: MOV’s (Metal Oxide Varistors) for additional lightening/static protection
Port Switching: 2 Amp DC 6-way heavy duty rotary switch by CK Switches

All complete systems include 2 x M8 stainless steel U-Bolts so you can attach the outdoor relay unit to a small pole or stub mast. We even include a DC plug, a length of flex to power the unit and ‘Nakamichi’ professional grade banana plugs. All you need is some 7-core flex for the control line and you’re up and running!

Remember – It’s cheaper to order ‘Complete Systems’ which includes everything rather than individual parts
All units are individually hand-built and QRO tested before they leave the factory
