What’s your warranty policy?2020-08-02T17:25:31+00:00

Our products are covered for manufacturing defects for up to 2 years after purchase.

 

What are the most popular software environments for these devices?2020-08-02T17:22:49+00:00

By far, the majority of our customers utilize our products in Linux environments automated with Python.

For bench testing, our Windows Desktop GUI is a popular method for control.

Lastly, embedding Ethernet capability into our products makes network control our third most popular method.

What platforms does the AdauraTech R3 platform support?2020-08-02T17:20:10+00:00

The R3 series of RF attenuators can be controlled by virtually all platforms that can connect to a USB or Ethernet device.

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • MacOS
How are AdauraTech RF attenuators powered?2020-07-30T21:56:42+00:00

The R3 series programmable RF attenuators are entirely powered by USB or Ethernet PoE.

Rackmount attenuator arrays and mesh attenuation systems are powered by a 5V DC input.

What is the R3 attenuator enclosure made out of?2020-07-30T21:54:49+00:00

The R3 series programmable RF attenuators are made from precision CNC machined aluminum.

Does AdauraTech offer customizations?2020-07-30T21:47:27+00:00

Yes! Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

Does the AdauraTech platform support LabVIEW?2020-07-30T21:37:31+00:00

Yes, our devices can be controlled in LabVIEW as any other serial device using VISA drivers. An example LabVIEW project can be downloaded in the Support area here: Support

How often is the “status” updated?2020-07-30T21:35:39+00:00

The serial command STATUS returns the status of all attenuator channels. The values shown with STATUS are refreshed whenever a channel’s attenuation level is changed.

How many simultaneous Telnet connections does the AdauraTech platform support?2020-07-30T21:31:21+00:00

Our Ethernet devices support up to 10 simultaneous Telnet connections.
