NanoSpeed™ High Power 1×2 Single-Stage Polarization-Maintaining High Speed Optical Switch

The NS High Power Series 1×2 solid-state PM fiber optic switch connects optical channels by redirecting an incoming optical signal into a selected output optical fiber. This is achieved using patented non-mechanical configurations with solid-state all-crystal designs, which eliminates the need for mechanical movement and organic materials. The NS high power PM fiberoptic switch is designed to meet the most demanding switching requirements of ultra-high reliability, fast response time, and continuous switching operation. The switch is bidirectional.

Agiltron’s PCB driver listed in the web is recommended to operate this device, featuring high efficiency and low cost with 12V DC power and TTL control signal.
