The NanoSpeedTM F series fiber optic on-off switches are fast shutter device uniquely featuring very low optical loss, fast response, and high optical power handling. The high extinction of 50dB is achieved using a patent pending feedback electro-optical bias control technology, that maintains the optimum performance against drift and environment variations. The NS fiber-optic switch is designed to meet the most demanding switching requirements of ultra-high reliability for undersea, space, continuous switching operation, and longevity over 25 years. The switch is bidirectional. It is well suited to replace acoustic modulator with advantages of low loss, low power consumption, and low cost.
The NS Series switch is controlled by 5V TTL signals with a specially designed electronic driver having performance optimized for various repetition rate. A wall pluggable DC power supply is accompanied with each devices.
