  • Passive Fiber Optic Switches, Switching Systems and Multiplexers

    FO Series - Cytec Corp.

    Cytec's new FO Series Passive Fiber Optic Switching Systems are computer controlled chassis that are designed to switch standard fiber optic wavelengths of 850 nm, 1310 nm and 1550 nm. Multinode 62.5/125 um switches are available for 850 nm and 1310 nm wavelengths, while single mode 9/125 um switches are available for 1310 nm and 1550nm. Passive, bidirectional, moving fiber optic switches are used that show insertion losses as low as 0.10db for multi-mode and 0.25db for single-mode switches.

  • PC/AT/XT Compatible Modules

    PC Series - Cytec Corp.

    The PC Series Modules are broken into two distinct categories, PC-B and PCI. The PC-B modules plug into PC/AT/XT compatible ISA bus slots while the PCI modules plug into PCI slots. Both are available as either switch modules or driver modules. The modules can be controlled either by direct hardware port access or by installable device drivers. PCI modules come with plug and play device drivers. Software support is available for the most common program languages. The modules also have a special status feedback feature which enables the computer to confirm that the correct selections have been made by checking the relay drive. This can be used to self test the modules or as a diagnostic tool.

  • Output Driver Modules

    LX8/OD - Cytec Corp.

    LX8/OD modules have discrete circuits that can be used to drive external devices such as large relays or solenoids. These driver modules are available with three different transisters or per your specs, to deal with TTL signals all the way up to 8 amps of current at 100 VDC. Opto isolated drives with status feedback to the remote computer. 16 Pin Screw Terminal mating connector included.

  • Switching Systems

    RJ Series - Cytec Corp.

    The RJ Series of computer controlled switching systems are designed for physical layer switching of multiwire signals om RJ style connectors. Since the system uses mechanical relays it acts exactly like a piece of cable which makes it perfect for testing networks without altering the signals or regeneration. These systems are typically used for Ethernet LAN 10BaseT through 10KBaseT, DSL, CAT5 through CAT6A cable testing, USB up to 2.0, RS422 up to 8 wire and many other applications switched over RJ45 connectors up to 8 wires. They may also be used as lab automation switches, network testing switches, patch panels, network redundancy switches or any number of physical layer applications.

  • Large Video and RF Switches and Matrix Switching Systems

    TX Series - Cytec Corp.

    Cytec's TX Series Three-stage Matrix Switching System is a completely non-blocking and full fan-out. Available in configurations for 16x16 to 128x128 with a bandpass to 140 MHz. The system can handle a wide variety of 50 and 75 ohm signals.

  • LX8/G Modules

    Cytec Corp.

    LX G type modules interconnect to each other through the LXA motherboard and allow a large variety of different configurations depending on how they are externally interconnected. Up to 16 switch modules may be installed as well as one Signal I/O modules which bring the switched signals out to a common connector. Using this technique it is possible to form and endless arrangement of different configurations. Some examples are below:

  • LX8/ID Modules

    Cytec Corp.

    LX8/ID modules have discrete circuits that can be used to detect contact sense, DC Volts, Current flow, AC sense, threshold voltage or whatever circuit you can dream up. Detection circuit is opto isolated and allows status feedback to your computer. See circuit examples in the drawing to the left. There are 8 circuits per module. Specify what circuit you would want on the prototyping section of the board. 20 Pin header connector for I/O.

  • LX8/K Modules

    Cytec Corp.

    LX K type modules have discrete relays with individual contacts wired out to the rear panel connector as shown in the figures to the left.

  • Mainframe Chassis

    DXM/64x64 and DXM/128x128 - Cytec Corp.

    These Chassis provide a non-blocking, full fan-out matrix in any configuration from 16x16 to 128x128 or larger. Both systems are capable of switching high speed differential CML up to 2.5 Gbps but are most commonly used for ECL, LVDS, LVPECL, Spacewire or RS422.

  • Mainframe Chassis

    DX/256x256 - Cytec Corp.

    These Chassis provide a non-blocking, full fan-out matrix in any configuration from 64x64 to 256x256. The standard chassis switches differential RS422 up to 20 Mbps or single ended TTL data up to 40 Mbps. Custom buffer modules allow for single ended 75 ohm TTL signals up to 80 Mbps. Systems may be configured as dual 128x128 for Clock and Data signals. D78 connectors are standard and may be taken out to patch panels for almost any other connector such as BNC, Twinax, Triax or other D types. 75 ohm TTL systems are patched to 75 ohm BNC's.

  • Mainframe or -E Expansion Chassis

    LXB/128-MF - Cytec Corp.

    These Chassis are preconfigured single or two pole matix systems. A single chassis can be a 16x8 matrix, two 16x4 matrices, a single 32x4 or a single 64x2 configuration. Chassis is modular so you may start with a smaller size and increase the configuration as your needs grow. LEDs on the front panel show switch and power status. A thumbwheel manual control is optional. Remote control is from 10/100 LAN, GPIB, RS232, USB or TTL. A variety of relays are available to handle almost any voltage. Connector options are BNC, Screw Terminal or Twinax.

  • Mainframe or -E Expansion Chassis

    LXA/128-MF - Cytec Corp.

    These Chassis control up to 16 modules with up to 8 relays per module. A large variety of different switch modules are available to build almost any configuration. Modules are available to build matrix or mux configurations or discrete relay modules. Input detection modules, output driver modules and proto board modules allow custom systems for almost any application. LEDs on the front panel show switch and power status. A thumbwheel manual control is optional.

  • Matrix Expansion Systems

    MESA Series - Cytec Corp.

    The MESA Series Expansion Systems make it possible to build large matrix or multiplexer configurations using a MESA Control Unit to control the required number of Expansion Chassis from one Control Module. These Chassis can be any combination of different types of Expansion Chassis, including the CXAR, CX, LX, HXV, VX, and PX Matrices; JX Multiplexers, GX and RS Group Switches, VDX Video Switches, FX and FO Fiber Optic Switches, HDX 4600 High Density Matrices and the DX Digital Matrices.
