Overview

Pickering PXI Fiber Optic Multiplexers connect a single channel to one of two or four channels. They are available in single or dual multiplexer configurations supporting single-mode or mult- mode fiber.A wide choice of connectors types is available. The 40-810 multiplexer connects the optical channel by redirecting the optical signal into a selected output fiber.This is achieved using optical prisms driven by a highly precise mechanism and activated via an electrical control signal. Also now available is a 2x2 Insert/Bypass switch, type 40-820

Note: For new applications please refer to the PXI Optical Switching page for details of current products.
