DiCon's On-Off Optical Switch provides channel control from one input fiber to one output fiber. Actuated electrically and operating independently of data rate and signal format, the component uses a moving shutter between a fixed collimator pair. DiCon's On-Off Optical Switch can be built with Corning SMF-28, Flexcor 1060 or Polarization Maintaining Panda fiber.
On-Off Optical Switches provide a means of interrupting an optical signal. They are commonly used to isolate sources and receivers in test equipment and high security networks.
