The LB Dual 2×2 Bypass Multimode Fiberoptic switch is a highly integrated single device with 8 fiber ports. Based on an Photonwares’s pending patent, the switch is designed especially for protection and restoration applications. The switch is activated by a 5V pulse between two states, and the latching operation preserves the selected optical path after the drive signal has been removed. The switch has integrated electrical contact based position sensors. The simple design significantly reduces moving part position sensitivity, offering unprecedented high stability as well as an unmatched low cost. Electronic driver is available for this series of switches. The switch is bidirectional.
We offer tight-bend-fiber version, which reduces the minimum bending radius from normal 15 mm to 7 mm. This feature enables smaller overall foot print.
