VX500 2×N Optical Switch

DiCon's VX500 2×N Optical Switch offers accurate connection of two input fiber channels to a maximum of 30 output fiber channels. The 2×N switch is available in blocking and non-blocking configurations. The VX500 2×N Optical Switch is available in compact housings for up to 14 or 30 output channels. The housings are designed for mounting on printed circuit boards or within enclosures. DiCon’s VX500 2xN Optical Switch can be built with Corning SMF-28, Flexcor 1060 or Polarization Maintaining Panda fiber.


Applications for 2×N switches include fiberoptic component test and measurement, remote fiber test systems, and fiber network monitoring. Blocking 2×N switches have two inputs aligned with only one output. The components switch in half-channel increments. Non-blocking 2×N switches have two inputs aligned with two outputs. They switch in one-channel increments.
