Lightech Launches Mechanical Switch
SAN LEANDRO, Calif. -- LIGHTech Fiberoptics, Inc, the premier, quality source for optical switching components, variable optical attenuators, integrated optical modules and test equipment, rolls out its LT500 1x3-1x5 switch series with the smaller form factor. This compact LT500 module, measuring 15x50x70mm, operates over the full wavelength range of 1280~1340 and 1520~1580nm. Ultra lower power consumption, lower insertion loss and faster switching speed characterize the LT500 series. Input/output fibers are co-located on a single end of the module to enable optimal space management and simple integration with complimentary optical components. The pin control interface operates at 5 volt and is compatible with all standard printed circuit board assemblies. The LT500 is designed for use in optical system and wavelength performance monitoring, and OEM network test systems. All configurations are designed to meet Telcordia 1221 performance and reliability standards. The latching mechanical function enables the lightpath to remain intact when input power is off.Lightech Fiberoptics Inc.
