LightBend™ Straight Series Fiber Optic Switch

The LB Straight Series Fiber Optic Switch connects optical channels by redirecting an incoming optical signal into a selected output fiber. This is achieved using a patent pending opto-mechanical configuration and activated via an electrical control signal. Latching operation preserves the selected optical path after the driver signal has been removed. The switch has integrated electrical position sensors. The new material-based advanced design significantly reduces moving part position sensitivity, offering unprecedented high stability as well as an unmatched low cost. Electronic driver is available for this series of switches. The switch is bidirectional. The LB Mini Straight Series Switches can be directly mounted on printed circuit board with configurations of 1×1, Dual 1×1, Quad 1×1, 1×2, Dual 1×2, 2×2, Dual 2×2, Dual 2×2 Bypass both Single mode and Multi-mode, also we provide configurations Full 2×2 and Dual Full 2×2 Multi-mode. If you want to looking for Single mode Full 2×2 and Dual Full 2×2 Switches, please pay attention to our MEMS series Switch.

We offer tight-bend-fiber version, which reduces the bending radius. This feature enables smaller overall foot print.
