Multiplexers use MEMS technology to switch optical signals over fiber

Clacton on Sea, United Kingdom—Pickering Interfaces is expanding
its range of LXI compliant switching products with the introduction of the
60-850 and 60-851 optical switching multiplexers.

The 60-850 and 60-851 fiber-optic multiplexers use MEMS switching technology to switch single-mode (60-850) or multi-mode (60-851) optical signals being carried on fiber connections.

The 60-850 (single-mode) and 60-851 (multi-mode) offer 8-way and 16-way MUX configurations with a variety of connector options to suit most
applications. Other configurations can be provided on request.

The switching system is housed in a compact 1U high form factor, making it
suitable for use in rack-mounted applications. All optical connections are
provided on the front panel and include captive dust covers to protect the
connectors when they are not in use.

The LXI Class C compliant interface allows the 60-850/1 to be remotely
controlled via its Ethernet port through a web browser or by the
programmatic interface.

The 60-850/1 LXI compliant interface serves up a soft front panel application that allows the user to control the switching matrix without the time consuming installation and configuration of drivers. In addition to Kernel and IVI drivers, the 60-850/1 is supplied with an SNMP interface to simplify remote access.

Datasheets: 60-850 and 60-851.
