RENT or BUY a JDSU / VIAVI SW series Small Channel Count Fibre Switch Module from TMG


SW series

Small Channel Count Fibre Switch Module

Specifications:Download Specifications


The JDS Uniphase Small Channel Count Switch Module (SW) series is used for incorporating customized test assemblies and specialized applications operating multiple source measurement instruments, such as optical spectrum analysers, wavelength meters, and power meters. This high performance switch is suitable for system trial applications where monitoring, testing and routing are required. Other applications include sensing, calibration, reference, research and development (R&D). In operation, the switch connects the optical channels by redirecting the optical signal into a selected output fiber. This action is achieved using optical prisms driven by a high-precision non-latching mechanism and activated by electrical control signal. Switching can be done by applying either a direct electrical or TTL control. The SW series of switch is available in both single-mode (SM) and multimode (MM). The use of collimating optics minimizes the insertion loss (IL) and improves the repeatability and stability of the optical parameters. The switch is optically passive and, therefore, is transparent to signalling formats. Configurations can be optimized for bi-directional performance as a factory option.
