Guangxi CORERAY Optical Communication Technology Co.,Ltd. is an enterprise specializing in the production of passive components for optical communication.The company is committed to the large-scale application of laser communication passive device manufacturing technology.
We mainly provide Mechanical Optical Switch, Solid State Optical Switch, Large Port Optical Switch, Small Optical Switch, Optical Switch, Optical Filter, Mems Optical Switch, etc.
Types of optical switches According to the differences in manufacturing process and technology, optical switches can be divided into mechanical switches, MEMS (microelectromechanical system) switches and other switches.
Optical switches are a critical component for applications in 1.31–1.55 μm optical communications, networks, and microsystems. They can reduce network costs and increase fiber transmission capacity while distributing optical signals to different users.
Optical switches consist of mechanical, optically mechanical or electronic types. In networks, we often need protection switching to complete or interrupt the optical path. Critical attributes must operate reliably in one location after a long time, and system monitoring and diagnostics typically have these devices.
Using a mechanical switch requires direct contact to activate the board, while using an optical switch, everything is non-contact (which means it doesn't actually contact).
The optical switch is usually more durable because of less wear.
Optical switch term (Telecommunications) a switch that selectively changes signals between optical fibers or integrated optical paths.
