The JDS Uniphase SB, SC, and SCG series of Benchtop/Rackmount Programmable Switches can be controlled using the front panel keys and a numeric pad or via GPIB and serial RS232 interface. The SCG series ganged input switches allow a single switch instrument to replace multiple switch elements while maintaining low loss. In this series of switches, the inputs are ganged together in a particular sequence and are thus able to offer three different modes of operation (D, E, and F configurations).
The SB and SC series switches are available in four basic configurations, namely C, D, E, and F. The C configuration is a single common input model. The D configuration provides simultaneous connection of a bank of input fibers to output fibers. The E configuration allows any input to be connected to any output while other inputs/outputs are aligned to subsequent/adjacent channels. The switch is non-blocking in this mode and other inputs/outputs are aligned. The F configuration enables one of the inputs to be aligned with an output in a blocking sense, with a result in reduction of available output channels.
A low-loss MxN blocking switch is the result. Operation of these switches is based upon JDS Uniphase's proven expanded beam lens technology, which utilizes a precision stepper-motor to align optical channels. The use of collimating lenses minimizes insertion loss and improves repeatability and performance. Internal temperature control of the switching mechanism ensures excellent operational stability.
Both single-mode and multimode versions of the SB, SC, and SCG series switches are available. The series features the high level of performance required for multi-unit testing in research and development and in manufacturing environments. The compact, portable SB switch and the standard rack-mount enclosure SC and SCG switches are highly suited for applications in telecommunications, manufacturing, and test environments.
JDS Uniphase's SB and SC switches are known in the fiberoptic industry for their low insertion loss and excellent repeatability. In addition to the many standard options available, we also customize switches in this series to meet your specific application need.
