  • Eight LC Duplex Channels allow simultaneous quick connection between two fiber optic networks or devices.
  • The switch ports are transparent to all data.
  • All fiber signals ar switched via break-before-make MEMS-based mirror/prism switch technology.
  • When power is lost, all channels revert to the Offline position.
  • Upon power up, unit switches based on stat of Contact Closure.
  • Simultaneous channel control via front panel pushbutton control or Contact Closure Remote.
  • Front panel pushbutton control.
  • Front panel LED's display present position and power status.
  • Remote Contact Closure control provides dry contact logic to allow the control of the switch position and lockout state.
  • COM and A ports for the LC duplex are, Multi-mode, 50/125 micron, and support a wavelength of 850nm.
  • The fiber ports are configured per TIA/EIA-568-B.3, where the TX of the COM port is routed to the RX of the A ports and vice versa.

The QuickSwitch® Model 6306 8-Channel, LC Duplex Online/Offline Switch with Contact Closure Remote allows the user the capability of connecting or disconnecting two separate devices, ports COM and A, via an Online or Offline connection for 8 channels simultaneously.  The QuickSwitch® 6306 fits in a standard 19" rack, taking 2U of rack space.  The switch may be controlled manually via the front panel pushbutton or remotely from a DB9 port located on the rear of the unit.  Switch position state may be attained via the front panel LED.
