Designed for Fiber Switching 1x2 to 1x9

Switch-up Your Fiber

Piezo-electric driven switches are especially designed for fast switching – measured in milliseconds. Piezo actuators enable the optical switch to couple optical fibers with an accuracy of a few microns. The piezo driven optical switches are available fiber core diameters of 50 µm up to 600 µm.

Standard switch configurations range from 1-input to 2-outputs, up to 1-input to 9-outputs. Standard fiber diameters range from 50 to 600 micrometers. A variety of connectors are available. By utilizing piezo-electric actuator technology, these fiber switches can guarantee high accuracy in the positioning of optical fibers.

piezosystem jena fiber switches use fiber surface coupling. The major advantage of this design is that it is not necessary to depend on optical components in the switcher. The high accuracy of positioning of the piezo-electric actuators guarantees a light transmission of >80%, with a typical switching time of <1 ms. Fiber switches with optical components, like lenses or prisms, will always result in a wavelength-dependent limitation.

The small size of the fiber switch and the easy control make these fiber optic switches ideally suited for use as components of spectrometers or other metrology devices. Switch systems with many more output channels can be achieved by cascading multiple fiber switches.
