Key facts

  • Modular, reliable and cost-efficient
  • Compact, secure and flexible
  • Powerful control and RF relay modules up to 67 GHz
  • Expandable system configurations
  • Convenient manual and remote control
  • Trigger function
  • Ethernet

The modular R&S®OSP open switch and control platform is designed to perform RF switch and control tasks.

The R&S®OSP is offered in two compact 2 HU models (R&S®OSP220, R&S®OSP230) and one higher 3 HU model (R&S®OSP320) to meet the requirements of diverse test scenarios – ranging from desktop configurations for laboratory measurements to complex, rack-integrated test systems. 

The R&S®OSP230 model comes with touchscreen for manual control. A monitor option is avalable for the R&S®OSP320 model.

Features & benefits

Modular, reliable, cost-efficient

Essential for reproducible measurements

The modularity provided by the R&S®OSP family facilitates the fast setup of test and measurement configurations for applications in production, test labs and development. The ability to implement complex wiring by means of a single switch and control platform is an essential prerequisite for reliable and reproducible measurements that can be automated to enable cost-efficient test sequences.

R&S®OSP-N Open Switch and Control Platform
Open Lightbox

EMC test system with R&S®OSP

The R&S®OSP is used to distribute generator and amplifier signals, to multiplex the forward and reverse signals and to check interlock signals.

Compact, secure and flexible

Different models up to 10 flexible module slots


The R&S®OSP units are accommodated in a compact 19" cabinet of two or three height units. 
The powerful CPU and the LINUX operating system provides maximum flexibility for controlling switch and control modules and enables the use of  internal and external interfaces. 
The module slots on the rear and frontside of each unit can be integrated into one, extra-wide triple or double module slot to accept larger modules with an extended range of functions.

Powerful control and RF relay modules

Electromechanical relays up to 67 GHz


Users can choose among:

  • universal electromechanical RF relay modules with N relays (from DC to 12.4 GHz),
  • electromechanical RF relay modules from DC to 18 GHz, 26.5 GHz, 40 GHz, 50 GHz, and 67 GHz
  • solid-state relay (SSR) modules (up to 10 GHz), digital I/O and multiplexer modules

Special system modules modules make it easier to implement EMS and other test systems.

Overview modules with RF coaxial relays

Expandable system configurations

Easy system integration and virtually unlimited expandability


All R&S®OSP models can be combined via Ethernet into avlocal network or a corporate or global network in a master/vslave configuration. This makes it possible to expand existing R&S®OSP systems to meet future requirements.
As an alternative to networking multiple R&S®OSP units, the compact R&S®OSP‑B200S2 satellite box can be used for remote operation. The satellite box shifts RF switch and control tasks close to the DUT or the antennas. This reduces the number of long RF cables required, improving RF performance of the setup and saving costs.

Possible combinations of OSP units and satellite boxes

Intuitive operation

Easy manual operation and remote control using web interface


The R&S®OSP models come with a built-in web interface for local operation of the unit or for control from a PC or laptop with a browser. In the case of browser based control, the resolution of the displayed content is automatically adapted to the screen size of the monitor used.
All R&S®OSP models can be controlled using a keyboard and mouse and an external HDMI™ monitor.

Web GUI for switching and path definition

Path control

Efficent manual operation or programming

  • Relay switching states are combined to define paths, simplifying the control and programming of complex wiring configurations.
  • The ability to copy and paste the syntax of manually defined paths to SCPI commands makes SCPI programming very efficient.

Example of path definition for relays in different modules

Trigger function

Faster Switching

External triggers control switching processes more precisely and make them up to 1000 times faster when solid-state relays are used.

Key features of the trigger function

  • Very fast switching of OSP modules with SSR (Solid State Relays), up to 1000x faster than via LAN
  • Hardware controlled switching of all switching elements by
    - external measurement devices
    - external hardware of an measurement setup
  • Precise and reproducible switching according the trigger signal
  • Four different trigger types: single. toggle, sequenced and addressed
  • Trigger is configurable via SCPI and touchscreen
  • Manual trigger for debugging without ext. trigger signal
  • The GUI displays the minimal trigger interval / maximal trigger frequency of the configuration
