Fibre optic switch for LiDAR applications

LASER COMPONENTS has introduced the Agiltron CrystaLatch (CL) series of optical switches that are specifically designed for sensor and LiDAR applications. The CL 1x6 switch assigns the incoming signal to one of the six available output ports and simultaneously detects the reflected signal via a dedicated sensor port. It is designed for permanent, fail-safe live operation under strong vibrations, and works perfectly even at temperatures of -40°C.

A magneto-optical solution is applied to minimise optical signal losses. The circuitry is carried out in a patented configuration without mechanical components – the integrated circulator is activated via an electrical control signal.

Due to the latching function (flip flop), the selected optical output remains active even after the driver signal is switched off. Thanks to their low insertion loss, the CL switches are highly efficient.
