The NanoSpeed™ i-series fiber optic switches are fast on-off shutter devices uniquely featuring very low optical loss, fast response, and high optical power handling. The high extinction of 50dB is achieved using our patent pending intelligent feedback electro-optical bias control technology, which maintains optimum performance against drift and environmental variations. The NS fiber-optic switch is designed to meet the most demanding switching requirements for ultra-high reliability in undersea, space, continuous switching operation, and longevity over 25 years. The switch is bidirectional and is well suited for replacing acoustic modulators 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 optimized for various repetition rates. A wall pluggable DC power supply accompanies each device.
