Description

The AD-USB8AR38G95 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-USB8AR38G95 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.

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.
