1x4 Prism Switch

DiCon's 1×4 Prism Switch provides channel selection from a single input fiber to one of four output fibers. Actuated electrically and operating independently of date rate and signal format, the component uses moving prisms between fixed collimators. DiCon's 1×4 Prism switch is housed in a compact, environmentally stable package designed for mounting on a printed circuit board or within a module.


1×4 switches are used for network monitoring applications with up to four monitored fibers.
