LYNX Technik Expands its yellobrik Fiber Solutions with 2x2 Optical Switch

November 30, 2020 – Weiterstadt, Germany – LYNX Technik, provider of modular signal processing interfaces, announces a new 2x2 optical switch for its popular yellobrik line of “throw down” bricks.

The OSW 1022 is designed to improve connectivity and security on fiber networks, serve as a fiber line emergency switch, provide restoration & reconfiguration over optical paths, route diversity as well as support a wide range of other fiber optic applications. It ensures optical network protection and flexibility in optical network connectivity for a Broadcast or Professional AV facility.

This 2x2 optical switch selectively switches signals over optical fibers from one channel to another. It is data rate and format-independent and provides connection paths between two fiber inputs and two fiber outputs (2 pairs). The OSW 1022 can be configured in two modes: latching or non-latching. In latching mode, the OSW 1022 maintains its current optical connection path when power is weak or is lost. In non-latching mode, the yellobrik switches to a new connection path when power fails. The optical switch will revert to its original connection path when power returns.

The compact OSW 1022 has been developed with LYNX Technik’s known state-of-the-art performance that the company is known worldwide for. As with the entire yellobrik line, all instructions, functions, and settings are directly on the module, ensuring a plug-and-play and easy to use solution. It can also be configured with the yelloGUI software. They can be used as standalone devices, individually mounted, or used with the 19” yellobrik rack trays as part of a larger system.
