New Ultra-Fast Fiber Coupled 2x1 or 1x2 Optical Switch


Our Acousto Optics Components Division is introducing a leading-edge OEM Optical Switch capable of switching an optical path in less than 30 nsec. Brimrose Optical Switch technology is based on a solid-state device (an Acousto-Optic Modulator) with no mechanical moving parts that is immune to vibration, hermetically sealed and suitable for rugged environmental installation.  Our new generation of optical switches are suitable for telecommunications applications, including optical add/drop multiplexing and cross connect deployments, as well as fiber optic sensing applications.

Brimrose optical switches offer low-insertion loses and low-power consumption and can handle optical power up to 1W. These are bidirectional switches and can operate in either 2x1 or 1x2 configurations. They are designed for single-mode or polarization maintaining optical fibers with customer-specified connector types. Standard units are designed for the C-Band. Other wavelengths are available upon request.

The small compact OEM RF driver included with the optical switch is compatible with an external TTL control assuring high reliable operation, continuous high frequency switching speed and superior repeatability.
