The Fiber-Fiber™ series Dual 1xN Broad Wavelength Fiber Optical Switch connects optical channels by redirecting an incoming optical signal into a selected output fiber. This is achieved by using a patent-pending optomechanical configuration activated via an electrical control signal. Latching operation preserves the selected optical path after the drive signal has been removed. Photonwares unique design offers low insertion loss covering a very broad spectral band from 200 to 2000 nm with various single mode and multimode fibers.
Multimode fiber core size is from 50 to 1000 µm. The switch is bidirectional and can accommodate up to 300 fiber ports. The switch is controlled by RS232 or USB computer interface with a graphic Software. Labview version is also available.
