The D12 dual 1x2 optical switch is equivalent to two S12 single 1x2 fiber optic switches in one switch that change state together and cannot be switched independently, with 6 fibers and 2 states.  In state 1, input fiber 1 is connected to output fiber 6 and input fiber 4 is connected to output fiber 3. In state 2, input fiber 1 is connected to output fiber 5 and input fiber 4 is connected to output fiber 2.


This latching version of the D12 requires no steady state input power. The switch is set to state 1 or state 2 by a single pulse of 20 milliseconds or longer. Continuous current is preferable to maintain the switched state under high vibrational stress. The latching design retains its switched state during a power loss.


Cables and Cable Length

   All cables are 900µm tight buffer and 1.0 meter length.  Custom lengths are available at additional cost.



   Standard input voltage 5 Volts and a 50 ohm coil.  Other options are available on request.
