Laser Components IG (Hudson, NH) has introduced a series of fiber optical switches with core diameters of up to 600 μm. The "mol 1×N" and "mol 2×N" feature switching times of two milliseconds and low signal loss (less than 0.5 dB). The switches are available in various configurations, and come with or without a connector in compact housings, table housings, or 19" insertions.

The units may be used in fields using optical single-mode or multi-mode fibers (telecommunication, sensory technology, optical spectroscopy, bio-medical technology, or polarization-maintaining fiber optics). Customized integration of additional optical functionality (filtering/monitoring) is allowable.
