    2x4 Fiber Optical Switch

    Model FOSW-2x4
    Price:   ¥70,252.50
    Available Options:
    Connector Type:
    Pigtail Type:

This 2x4 type optical switch has low insertion loss, low driving power, compact size, and fast switching speed. The switch is designed for use in optical fiber communication networks and measurement instruments. The switch consists of two 1x2 switches (A & B components) with two input ports and four output ports that transmit, redirect, or block optical signals in the fiber. The two optical switches will be actuated to select a pair of fiber (A and B) from Ch1 or Ch2. The latching type optical switch remains in its present state upon loss of electrical control signal, while non-latching type returns to its default state at loss of electrical power. It only takes a 5msec electrical pulse to change the state of this switch.
