OP720 Optical Switch

OptoTest_OP720The OP720 is an optical switch for single mode or multimode applications available in a slim-line, ultra-compact frame. This optical switch is USB powered and incorporates the latest technology in high-speed switching.  With high repeatability and low loss, the OP720 is ideally suited for high channel count optical devices such as DWDM, waveguides, and splitters. Paired with our OP940 Return Loss Meter and the OPL Software Suite, insertion and return loss (IL/RL) can be measured accurately and efficiently on multifiber devices.

Note: The OP720 can also be produced with up to 144 channels upon request.
