CO12 Center Off 1x2 Fiber Optic Switch

Overview

The CO12 Center Off 1x2 optical switch is a 1x2 configuration with 3 fibers and 3 states. It is similar to an S12 1x2 optical switch, but with an additional "center off" state with no optical connections when the electrical drive is off. See Switch Overview for detailed information common to all Luminos switching products. 

Optical and Electrical Connectivity

The following diagrams show the optical connections for the 3 states. The numbers identify the fiber endpoints. In state 1, with power applied, there is an optical path between fibers 1 and 3. In state 2, with polarity reversed, fibers 1 and 2 are connected. With no power applied, no fibers are connected.
