Sercalo

Sercalos fiber optic 1xN and 2xN switches are bidirectional opto-mechanical switches based on a coaxial design where a single MEMS mirror redirects light from a common fiber to one of N ports. The MEMS technology results in low insertion loss and low crosstalk between channels while keeping a constant switching performance over life. The switch is available in several different variants to simplify integration in existing systems and reduce development cost. The miniature packages withstands rugged environments and is well suited for direct mounting on printed circuit boards. The hermetically sealed MEMS and the laser welded fiber collimator guarantee broad temperature range and superior long-term stability. No epoxy is present in the optical path. The component is compliant to Telcordia 1221 reliability standards and RoHS requirements 2015/863/EU.
