CrystaLatch™ 1×6 Fiber Optic Reflection Switch for LIDAR Sensor Applications
This family of fiber optical switches uniquely provides key function for sensor and LIDAR applications. The CL Series 1×6 Series reflection switch directs a laser into a selected fiber among 6 output ports and at the same time collect the reflected signal into a dedicate sensor port. This magneto-optic proprietary configuration minimizes optical signal loss by eliminating the need for additional circulator or coupler. The switching is achieved using patented non-mechanical configurations with built-in circulator and activated via an electrical control signal. Moreover, it has latching function that preserves the selected optical path after the drive signal has been removed.
Agiltron non-mechanical CL fiber optic switch features low insertion loss, fast response time, high extinction ratio, and extremely high reliability and repeatability. It is designed to meet the most demanding switching requirements of continuous operation without wear-out, longevity without fail, and live operation under vibration/shock, as well as -40 C operation. Electronic driver is available for this series of switches.
