The Multiple Application Platform (MAP) Small Channel Count Switch (mSCS-B1) is optimized for the industry-leading VIAVI MAP-200 platform. Based on the previous-generation MAP, the MAP-200 is the first photonic layer lab and manufacturing platform that is LAN Extensions for Instrumentation (LXI)-compliant by conforming to the required physical attributes, Ethernet connectivity, and interchangeable virtual instrument (IVI) drivers. The MAP-200 platform is optimized for density and maximum configurability to meet specific application requirements in the smallest possible foot print.
The mSCS-B1 is based on optical prism and mirror technology that directs incident light into selected output channels. It is available in 1x2 and 2x2 configurations and supports multiple devices per MAP cassette, single-mode or multimode fiber, and four connector types. An important element of an optical test bed, optical switches increase throughput by enabling time-saving automation, reducing uncertainty from repeated connector mating, and maximizing expensive testers.
- Insertion loss (IL) <0.8 dB and return loss (RL) >55 dB
- Low polarization dependent loss (PDL) 0.08 dB
- Up to 8 switches per cassette
- Can be automated when used with MAP-200 LXI-compliant interfaces and IVI drivers
