Higher performance and longer operational life

Pickering's range of PXI optical switching modules include high performance multiplexers and insert/bypass switches. MEMS (Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems) switch technology offers higher performance and longer operational life compared to conventional prism based optical switching 

We can offer most optical connectors in both single-mode and multi-mode. If the combination of fibre and connector you require does not appear in the list below, please contact your local sales office for a quote. 3-year standard warranty

We stand behind our products with a three-year warranty.
