MEISU's Mechanical Optical Switch is driven by a relay to control the prism to turn, thus switch the path. With several channels such as１ｘ2, １ｘ4,２ｘ２, this optical switch is normally used for OLP (Optical Fiber Line Protection) system.
1x1, 1x2, 2x2 Bypass
Latching and Non-latching
Switching speed: 8ms
Epoxy-free on optical path
Mechanical optical switch is realized by using mechanical devices to move mirror or prism physically, thus to redirect optical signals to the desired output port.
The basic form of mechanical optical switch is 2X2, which means there are two optical fibers at the inlet and outlet. Typically, it can complete two connection states: parallel connection and cross connection. Optical switching unit with more channels can be composed of the basic 2X2 optical switch and the corresponding 1X2 optical switch cascaded and combined.
