Lightech Unveils OpticalPatch Switch
SAN LEANDRO, Calif. -- LIGHTech Fiberoptics, Inc, the premier, quality source for optical switching components, variable optical attenuators, integrated optical modules and test equipment, announces the OpticalPatch Switch. The LT1600 Series 16/32 Port OpticalPatch Switch provides transparent optical (OOO ) routing connections for companies to utilize in Fiber Channel, Gigabit Ethernet and up to 40 Gbits/s Network environments. The OpticalPatch Switch provides the capability to automatically switch test configurations in these operating environments without the bandwidth and bit error rate limitations inherent in optical-electrical-optical conversions. The OpticalPatch Switch provides a convenient and simple way for the network engineers to remotely manage the complicated switching issues that previously required a time-consuming manual process. LIGHTech's OpticalPatch Switch permits operation over a temperature range from 0-50º C. Single-mode and multi-mode wavelengths are available. The OpticalPatch Switch is equipped with local control via a front panel keypad and remote control via RS232 or GPIB interfaces. A LabVIEW driver is provided. The OpticalPatch is designed for use in fiber channel monitoring, remote network testing, production testing, and to facilitate the multiple requirements of complex Interoperability Testing Laboratories.
