The OS-5111 is a fiber optic relay that can be
electrically controlled remotely or through a front panel switch.. The optical path through the units is purely
optical. There is no optical to electrical to optical conversion. There is
no electrical loss or electrical bandwidth limit on the fiber optic path.
The optical path can be select via a front panel switch or via contact
closure input. In event of loss of power, the unit has a fail safe mode that
closes the switch.
Common applications for this device are optical
routing, system bypass, network cut off switch, and fiber optic testing. The
OS-5111 control can be daisy chained to switch multiple optical connections.
For two OS-5111 mounted in a single housing, order the OS-5211.
