4x8 optical switch (OSW) features low insertion loss, low driving power, small size, and high switching speed. The switch is designed for use in optical fiber communication networks and PCI-E Cards. The switch consists of eight ports that selectively transmits, redirects, or blocks optical power in four fiber optic transmission lines. The optical switch must be actuated to select or change between two states. As a result, it consumes low electric energy to operate the optical switch. Lightwave Link Inc. 4x8 optical switch fully complies with RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC (2008/385/EC).
