4x4 Fiber Optic Switch

Rainbow Bar
 
This two-side 4x4 optical switch is designed to provide cross-connect function between Input and Output channels. It offers excellent insertion loss, repeatability and a wide operating temperature range.

Switch is latched at both the on and off positions. Latching means that when you apply a momentary (>50ms) +5 - 12vdc signal the switch will change states and remain in that switched state even if power is removed. To reverse the switch position simply reverse the voltage between the Command and Control pins on the SCSI 68 pin connector

Switch come with 1 meter 900um buffered pigtails. Choice of Fiber Optic connector PC or APC.
