OPTELLENT is a provider of broadband test & measurement solutions for communications. OPTELLENT’s test and measurement solutions are designed to offer unprecedented low-cost of ownership and ease of use. The Company’s test & measurement solutions are used in product development, manufacturing, and field installation and maintenance. Applications for OPTELLENT’s products include testing of optical components, modules (transceivers) and subsystems, IC testing, networking equipment, and network installation and maintenance. Both single-mode and multi-mode fibre applications are supported.

Optical Switches for Single & Multimode Applications

The OPS-Series is a multi-channel optical switch for single or multimode fibre. The rack-mountable instrument can switch up to 4 input fibres to any of up to 48 output fibres in a simplex or duplex mode.

OPS- Series Optical Switch

The OPTELLENT OPS-Series Optical Switch is a cost-effective easy-to-use all-optical switch solution for demanding applications in fibre optic instrumentation and communication. The rack mountable instrument can switch up to 4 input fibres to any of up to 48 output fibres in a simplex or duplex mode, independently of data format, wavelength or optical power. The switch supports either single or multimode fibres. Optical connections are set by a MEMS-based switch network, where micro-machined silicon mirrors redirect light to the selected ports. The use of MEMS technology offers solid-state reliability and long-term stability. The OPS-Series Optical Switch can be controlled locally using RS232 interface or from anywhere over the internet using its standard Ethernet interface. An intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) enables easy point-and-click operation.
