Optical Fibre Switches – Laser Measurement Technology

Designed for the most demanding applications, these optical fibre switches are compact and reliable with millisecond switching times over a long 100M cycle lifetime. Covering VIS (400-690nm), NIR (700-1100nm) and IR (1260-1360nm, 1480-1630nm) spectral bands, as well as the polarisation maintaining PM (1310-1550nm) band, these optical switches can be tailored to suit a wide range of optical communication technologies, for both single mode or multi-mode fibre.

This patented micro-optical/micro-mechanical technology includes:
 
< -60dB channel crosstalk
< -60dB return loss
< 0.005dB repeatability
100mW optical power
RS232, TTL or USB interface
 
A range of cross connections is possible including 1×2, 1×4, 1×8, 1×16, 2×4 and 2×8 channels. 19” rack mount options are available and multi-channel shutters. 
 
Applications include multi-channel laser sources, and detectors, multiple sensor monitoring, laser scanning microscopy, SPAD arrays and micro-optics, and spectroscopy.
