NanoSpeed™ Fiberoptic Polarization Switch

Enquire Now


The NaonSpeedTM Series polarization switch can quickly switch the incoming SOP between two orthogonal polarization states (SOPs). This is achieved using patented non-mechanical configurations with solid-state all-crystal designs, which eliminates the need for mechanical movement and organic materials and activated via an electrical control signal. The NS fiber optic switch is a fast switch device featuring very low loss, fast response, ultra-high reliability and high optical power handling. The input is PM fiber. the output could be either PM or SM fiber. For PM fiber, the polarizations is aligned with slow axis.

Agiltron’s SWDR driver is highly recommended to this polarization switch, by which the switch can be driven by a 0-5V control signal.
