1X8 Prism Switch

DiCon’s 1×8 Prism Switch provides channel selection between a single input fiber and one of eight output fibers. Actuated electrically and operating independently of data rate and signal format, the component uses moving prisms between fixed collimators. DiCon's 1x8 Prism Switch is housed in a compact, environmentally stable package designed for mounting on a printed circuit board or within a module.


1X8 Optical Switches are used for optical channel monitoring applications with up to eight tapped fibers.
