Santec serves up new OEM optical switch

Sept. 21, 2023
The new product offers a wide range of channels and custom configurations.

Santec has introduced the OSX-100E OEM Optical Switch. Available in sizes up to 80 channels with single-mode, multimode, polarization maintaining, or custom core sizes.

The new platform offers the benefit of the technology already used in Santec’s IL/RL measurement systems, where reliability is critical. Features like Ultra-low loss (< 0.5 dB), excellent repeatability (± 0.005dB), and low wavelength dependence, as well as multimode modal transparency, make the OSX-100E invisible to any application.

Besides the standard 1xN, 2xN in both ganged and trailing configurations are available.

The smallest form factor, OSX-100E (90x42x40 mm), can fit in a conventional 1U module chassis and has up to 27 channels. The compact configuration of the OSX-100E combined with the standard I2C communication protocol allows for simple and flexible integration.
