OP720 Test & Measurement Optical Switch

Advancing the World of Fiber Optics™

OP720 optical switch for single modeThe 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

OptoTest OP720HighChannelCount

OPL Software Suite, insertion and return loss (IL/RL) can be measured accurately and efficiently on multifiber devices.

The OP720 is available for up to 150 channels.  If your needs require above 150 channels, please contact our sales personnel for a custom quote.
