This kind of micro mechanical optic switch is driven by a relay to control the prism to turn, thus switch the path, with only few channels such as １ｘ１,１ｘ2, and２ｘ２. It is normally used for OLP (Optical Fiber Line Protection) system. This mini switch can be seen as an updated version of the regular mechanical optical switch in terms of the size of the case. Therefore, compared with the normal mechanical switches, it is more integratable.
1x1, 1x2, 2x2 Bypass
Latching and Non-latching
Switching speed: 4ms
Epoxy-free on the optical path
Mini Mechanical Optical Switch is of the same structure of the normal mechanical optical switch, realized by using mechanical devices to move mirror or prism physically, thus to redirect optical signals to the desired output port. Whereas, mini type is more compact and easier to be integrated into customer's system.
