Driven by standard TTL or CMOS outputs
Simplifies testing and prototyping
Inline electronics included in cable
Latching and non-latching versions
Full schematics available
Quick and Easy Testing and Prototyping
This switch driver allows a switch to be easily controlled using a common TTL or CMOS output for testing or prototyping. The electronics for the control are built inline as part of the 1 meter ribbon cable. One end of the cable is equipped with an IDC connector, ready to be connected to Luminos optical switches. At the other end, a bare ribbon leaves the connectorization up to the user.
Full schematics are available in the Documents area below for both the latching and non-latching versions of the driver board. These schematics also serve as example circuits for controlling Luminos optical switches with TTL outputs.
Note: this driver is not compatible with the CO12 Center Off 1x2 fiber optic switch.
V T1 (SD-L Only)
3 or 5V
Same as Switch Design Voltage
Switch is in State 1 - T1 is "OFF"
Switch is in State 2 - T1 is "ON"
T1 is "OFF"
Switch to State 1 - T1 is "ON" (T2 should be off)
T2 is "OFF"
Switch to State 2 - T2 is "ON" (T1 should be off)
