This letter proposes a novel type of 12 optical switch with a plastic-molded ferrule wherein an alignment mechanism is formed. Discussing the errors in ferrule fabrication, the insertion loss of the switch has been evaluated. The constructed switch for multimode fibers has shown an insertion loss of 0.7 dB and a switching time of 4 msec.
