Optical fibre switches have a 100M cycle lifetime

Optical fibre switches designed for the most demanding applications have been introduced by LASER COMPONENTS. These 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 the 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 features 60dB channel crosstalk, 60dB return loss, 0.005dB repeatability, 100mW optical power and an RS232, TTL or USB interface.

A range of cross connections are possible, including 1x2, 1x4, 1x8, 1x16, 2x4 and 2x8 channels. 19” rack mount options are available with multi-channel shutters. 

Applications include multi-channel laser sources, detectors, multiple sensor monitoring, laser scanning microscopy, SPAD arrays and micro-optics, and spectroscopy.
