The NS Series dual-stage 1×2 solid-state fiber optic switch connects optical channels by redirecting an incoming optical signal into a selected output optical fiber. This is achieved using patent-pending non-mechanical configurations with solid-state all-crystal designs, eliminating the need for mechanical movement and organic materials. The dual-stage series of NS fiber-optic switches are designed to meet the demand for high cross-talk in addition to ultra-high reliability, fast response time, and continuous switching operation. The device is bidirectional. The switch is intrinsically bidirectional and selectable for polarization-independent or polarization-maintained by the fiber type.
5V TTL signals control the NS Series switch with a specially designed electronic driver having performance optimized for various repetition rates.
The rise/fall time is intrinsically related to the crystal properties, and the repetition rate is associated with the driver. There are poor frequency response sections due to the device resonances. The NS devices are shipped mounted on a tuned driver.
The NS series switches respond to a control signal with any arbitrary timing with a frequency from DC up to MHz. The switch is usually mounted on a tuned driver before shipping. The electrical power consumption is related to the repetition rate at which the switch is operated.
The dual-stage configuration increases the extinction ratio or cross-talk value.
