The Optical single mode switch series from Laser Components operates from 400 to 1630 nm. They have an insertion loss of up to 1.4 dB, a return loss of more than 55 dB and a reproducibility of ± 0.005 dB. The switches have short switching times of 2 ms and more than 55 dB of cross talk between individual channels. The switches are available in 1x2, 1x4 and 2x2 configurations. These switches have a lifetime cycle of more than 108 cycles. They require a supply voltage of 5 Volts and consumes less than 450 mW of power. These switches have integrated microcontroller with several electrical interfaces servers for flexible switch control options. They are available in a compact rugged housing with pigtails, table top & 19" rack mount options and are ideal for applications in telecommunication, testing and measurement.
