Description

The AD-USB8AR36G95 is Adaura Technologies’ latest design in the AD-USB series of programmable RF attenuators. Combining all the best features of the previous models, the R3 is the new series flag ship. With a completely custom machined aluminum enclosure, the AD-USB8AR36G95 boasts 95dB of attenuation with over 110dB of interchain isolation. The addition of Ethernet allows EASY implementation into the most modern of test setups by allowing network control via HTTP web interface or direct Telnet while the USB port powers the device and allows for serial and HID communication. Optional Power Over Ethernet (POE) can be configured to the device.

Quantity pricing available.

Ideal for

• Cellular (3G, 4G, 5G)
• IoT
• WiFi 6 MIMO
• Engineering Development and
• Automated Manufacturing Test

HTTP Website Interface

The built in website can be easily accessed across a network without requiring the installation of any desktop applications. It is compatible with any platform or system capable of running a web browser.

Power Over Ethernet

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology that lets network cables carry electrical power. This feature allows simplicity in test setups as a single Ethernet cable can provide both power to the device as well as network control.

Hybrid HID & Serial USB Communication

Hybrid HID & Serial USB Communication

…allows extremely FAST integration into existing test setups. Why settle for one method when you can have the option of either? Our robust firmware provides the ability to connect and control with either USB Serial or USB HID.

  • USB Serial enables the use of any common serial console program. Simply connect to the device to send it commands via RS232.
  • USB HID provides another universal communication method as the device is recognized as a USB peripheral. Our convenient HID library can be easily implemented into test automation programs.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
