Click 'Spec Sheet' for available configurations/part#


The NS switch redirects an incoming optical signal among two output optical fibers rapidly controlled by a electrical input voltage from 0 to 5V. This array version integrate up to 8 switches in an ultra compact format.  Each switch can be configurated as 1×1, 1×2, 2×2. The all-solid-state crystal design provides high reliability. The switch has passed Telcordia reliability qualification tests.  It is designed to meet the most demanding requirements of ultra-high reliability, fast response time, and continuous operation.

The unit is mounted on a driving board having a control signal input SMC connector and a wall plug-in power supply.  Available with several electronic driver having performance optimized for various repetition rate.
