Optical Switches

Fiber optical switches for single- and multimode applications

Fiber optical switches from WEINERT are based on a micro-mechanical/micro-optical design featuring high-precision optics. These offer excellent parameters, superior flexibility, and long-lasting stability for a wide variety of applications. The switches are available for a broad spectrum ranging from ultraviolet to infrared, and can be manufactured and operated with virtually any fiber (both cascaded and non-cascaded), many interfaces, and almost any size of housing.

  • Shortest switching times
  • Long-term stability
  • Low losses
  • Polarization-maintaining
  • Full-matrix/non-blocking matrix
  • High optical performance
  • Almost any fiber usable
  • 350 nm – 1,650 nm with singlemode fibers
  • 200 nm – 2,400 nm with multimode fibers
