  • Switch Tips: Photointerrupter switches
    thermal constraints. Switches based on photointerrupters have no contacts, no lubricant, and only one spring. The switching action takes place by depressing a button that interrupts the optical path between an infrared LED and a photodiode or phototransistor. This provides a momentary "low
  • Optical Switching - Preface
    that it receives from the switch. control unit. These devices are referred to as optical switch fabrics. Several,. rather exotic technologies have been presented, with some being commercially. available and others still under research. Issues surrounding optical switch fabrics. are presented in Chapter 2
  • Optical Networking Best Practices Handbook
    in which communications carriers can scale their networks to meet the onslaught in demand affordably. A single strand of fiber can carry more than a terabit per second of information. Optical switches consume a small fraction of the space and power that is required for electrical switches. Advances
  • Optical Level Switches (.pdf)
    An optical level switch works by emitting a beam of infrared light within a prism and measuring the amount of light received. When the measured fluid reaches the sensor the amount of emitted light received drops thus triggering the contacts. As the sensor is detecting the state between material
  • Optical Level Switch Selection and Wiring Notes (.pdf)
    The optical liquid level sensors incorporate a phototransistor trigger, which provides a digital output that denotes the presence or absence of liquid. The mode of operation is derived from the principle of total internal reflection. An LED and phototransistor are housed within a plastic dome
  • Liquid Crystal in Precision Optical Devices
    techniques. needed to produce a precision optical device rather than a flat panel display along with development work being carried out at Meadowlark Optics in some of the above areas. These include polarization switches capable of greater than 5000:1 contrast and high efficiency beam steering
  • Sensor Sense: Optical data transmission
    Optical data transmission (ODT) offers a means of sending data between moving objects without some of the drawbacks associated with radio-frequency and wired-communications methods. ODT essentially replaces the radio waves or electrical wires with a beam of light. The sensors in ODT devices
  • Wired 8.09: Bright Switch
    A tiny crystal full of holes is about to smash the electronic speed limit, and in the coming photonics era, superfast optical networking is only the beginning. Deep in a Peruvian rain forest, a morpho butterfly rests in a beam of sunlight, its 3-inch wings fully spread and glowing an impossible
