San Leandro, Calif., October 3, 2001 -- LIGHTech Fiberoptics, Inc, the premier, quality source for optical switching components, variable optical attenuators, integrated optical modules and test equipment, announces the LT210 series of small form factor, opto-mechnical switches, at today’s ECOC conference in Amsterdam.  The LT210 product series, with its industry leading form factor height of 5.5mm, also achieves world class switching speed of 5ms. 

LIGHtech’s LT210 provides low insertion loss of 0.5dB. The form factor of 5.5x22x48mm, along with the PCB mountable interface, accommodates easy integration into complicated optical systems.  The series also features insertion loss repeatability of <?0.02dB and low crosstalk of <-70dB.  The LT210 family is designed for use in configurable optical Add/Drop Multiplexers, optical cross-connect systems, optical system performance monitoring, protection subsystems and portable test and measurement equipment.   

LIGHtech’s LT210 meets Telcordia 1073 performance and reliability standards.  It is also designed to meet Telcordia 1221 performance and reliability standards.  The latching mechanical function enables the lightpath to remain intact when input power is off.  The wavelength windows from 1280nm to 1340nm and from 1520nm to 1580nm are available.
