OS, Optical Switch
This optical switch facilitates automatic and cost-effective network backup and redundancy, increasing plant reliability by providing for a self-healing network. It occupies a single-slot in a 2RU ChromaFlex chassis. The wide input range (-10 to +15 dBm) meets a variety of application needs. Each optical switch has 2 optical inputs and a single optical output which can be operated as a 1×2 or a 2×1 optical switch. Its internal detector measures the input optical level and switches when the optical level drops below the user defined threshold.
