With crosstalk of –80 dB and life expectancy of 10 million cycles, the FTBx-9150 Optical Switch is ideal for bidirectional component testing, ribbon fiber testing, multichannel monitoring, remote and multiple-component testing, signal routing and bypass switching.
Housed in the LTB-8-based test systems, the FTBx-9150 provides highly accurate and repeatable fiber-to-fiber switching. It offers a choice of 1x2, 1x4, 1x8, 1x12, 1x16, 1x24, 1x32, 2x2 and 2x4 configurations.
Designed for minimal reflectance, the switches integrate precision optical components into a compact modular package. Both singlemode and multimode versions are available and offer a solution for all your optical switching needs.
The LTB-8 is a highly scalable and compact platform featuring the industry’s best 100G port density and hot-swap capabilities for no downtime or interruption in tests, and greatly improved efficiency. The FTBx-9150 can be easily remote-controlled by means of the standard LAN or optimal GPIB interface using SPCI commands, IVI drivers or any other automation software.
The following diagram illustrates how the connection is made.
