2×1 Optical Switch (LB-OSW-21)

The LB-OSW-21 is a 19”, 1RU rack mounted optical switch. It maintains full redundancy back up function by receiving, monitoring and controlling the optical input signals. The LB-OSW-21 optical switch enables optical signals to be selectively switched from the primary optical source to a secondary optical source when the primary source goes below a specified optical power.


  • Option to choose optical input wavelength range: 1200 nm to 1620 nm; 1310 nm or 1550 nm
  • Wide optical input power range: -15 dBm to +24 dBm
  • Optical power monitoring & display
  • RF state monitoring & switching based on both RF & optical detection
  • Automatic & manual switching modes
  • Optical threshold for switching can be adjusted
  • 100–260 VAC (50 to 60 Hz) or -48 VDC powering (optional redundant power supply)
  • Front panel LCD display. Can control & display all functioning parameters
  • RJ-45 Ethernet port & RS-232 serial port for web GUI & SNMP functionality
