Quick and Easy Testing and Prototyping
Luminos Inline Switch Driver

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.
