Optiva OTS-1-OSU 2×2 Dual-Band Optical Switch Unit

The EMCORE Optiva OTS-1-OSU-1 (single switch) and OTS-1-OSU-2 (double switch) Dual-Band Optical Switch Unit is optimized to perform in the 1310 nm and 1550 nm operating wavelengths. The OTS-OSU, when integrated with EMCORE’s family of fiber delay line units, provides wide range of microwave configurable system delay line links for satellite, radar and calibration applications. The OSU also provides general optical switching for fiber line applications. Additional features of the OTS-OSU Series include switch position and unit status LED, manual control modes and LC-APC Optical Connector.

A consultation with your EMCORE representative, or authorized EMCORE reseller is the 1st step in designing your system. Email Us, or call 626-293-3400, Ext. 3501 for a design consultation, or to request a datasheet.
