MEMS 2x2 Optical Switches


Index - Optical Switches

DiCon Fiberoptics' MEMS 2x2 optical switches are based on DiCon's industry proven MEMS optical switch technology, and offer high reliability over a long lifetime. DiCon offers three configurations for 2x2 optical switches; Add/Drop, Matrix or Blocking.

MEMS 2x2 Add/Drop Optical Switch

DiCon's MEMS 2x2 Add/Drop optical switches are used to add or drop an optical device from a network or optical system. This is accomplished by connecting the device in question to the ADD and DROP lines. The device is added by switching to the inserted state, and dropped by switching to the bypass state.

MEMS 2x2 Matrix Optical Switch

The 2x2 matrix optical switch is a true 2x2 optical switch, that allows for the following two switch states:

MEMS 2x2 Blocking Optical Switch

A MEMS 2x2 blocking optical switch will connect one of the inputs to one of the outputs, and blocks the other connection.
