OptoTest offers new optical switch configurations

Camarillo, California-based OptoTest is proud to announce the release of an update to its OP720 optical switch for test and measurement applications. The company’s existing slim-line, 1U enclosure still works for 1xN switches up to 24 channels, but the redesign allows for many new configurations to fit within a 2U rack-mountable enclosure, the company says. These changes will enable greater degrees of customisation to suit customers’ requirements.
