Components - TO-BIDI®


The TO BIDI® is a bi-directional optical component designed for full duplex communication over a single (Single or Multi-mode) fiber. The emitter and the receiver are located on one single TO in hermetically sealed TO can with flange.

The single fiber concept saves overall system costs by eliminating one fiber, allowing for doubling of capacity without installing new fibers, and simplifying fiber management.
