Sercalo Microtechnology’s RS series of rack-mountable units provides a range of high-performance optical switching solutions. With their solid state performance, the RS series fiber optic switches are the ideal choice demanding applications in fiber optic instrumentation or communication, network protection and reconfiguration, single mode (SM) or multi mode (MM) testing and sensor networks.
The RS Series are all optical switch solutions for installation into 19" racks. The instrument can switch up to 36 input fibers to any of up to 36 output fibers, independently of data format, wavelength or optical power. The switch supports either single mode (SM) or multi mode (MM) fibers.
The optical connections are set by a MEMS-based switch network, where micromachined silicon mirrors redirect light to the selected ports. The use of MEMS technology offers solid state reliability together with long term stability and robustness for stable operation. Different interface options are available. With the Ethernet interface, the instrument can be controlled over an internet connection.
The switch instrument is built using Sercalo Microtechnology’s Telcordia-qualified MEMS technology, which achieves superior reliability and repeatability when compared to traditional mechanical solutions. The switch is fully bi-directional and transparent to the full wavelength range of the installed fiber.
When several input fibers are required, the switch architecture is non-blocking. Any of the input ports can go to any of the free output ports. When a duplex operation is required, two switches are operated simultaneously and in parallel, e.g. the first one for the “RX” signal and the second one for the “TX” signal.
