Fiberer Optical Switch System

Optical Switch Systems

Fiberer's MxN optical switch systems are modular and can be configured to provide up to 128 channels (MxN: M≤4 & N≤64) and with a parallel TTL interface.

Lightwaves2020 Opto-Mechanical Optical Switch

Miniature 1x2 SM Opto-Mechanical Switch

Lightwaves2020's 1x2 optical switch is based on and opto-mechanical approach and optimized in package size, insertion loss, and electronic controls. The typical insertion loss over the temperature range of -5 ~ 70°C is 0.6 dB. The switch is designed for latching or non-latching operating mode. The small footprint makes it ideal for integration onto circuit boards.
