Dual 1xN Broad Wavelength Optical Switch Box – Fiber-Fiber™

The SelfAlign Series of optical fiber switch is based on a patent pending self-groove alignment mechanism without the need for AR coating and lenses. It offers unparallel advantages of very low loss of about 1dB for any array size, and low cost, amicable to any fiber core size, and broad wavelength operation from 300nm-2300nm. The SelfAlign Series of optical fiber switch is compliant with the Telcordia 1209 and 1221 reliability standards. The driving circuit is embedded in the package and is connected through RS232, RS485, or RJ45 interface.
The SelfAlign optical fiber switch is suitable for multiple channel signal monitoring and wavelength management in NxN, MxN and NxM (N,M≤48) configurations.
