  • Allows quick connection to any one of two LC fiber optic interface devices from one COMMON port.
  • The switch ports are transparent to all data.
  • All fiber signals are switched via break-before-make MEMS-based mirror/prism switch technology and supports Gigabit data rates. 
  • Switch maintains position and continues to pass data during power loss.
  • Switch powers up in the last known position.  
  • Front panel pushbutton control.
  • No Remote Control. 
  • Front panel LED's display present position and power status.
  • All A, B, and COM ports are LC, Single mode, 9/125 micron, and support a wavelength of 1310 nm & 1500 nm.
  • Ideal for fallback applications.
  • Optical data throughput scalability.  
  • Custom length, rigorously tested and certified LC fiber optic cables available for your switch installation.

The QuickSwitch® 6316 Single Channel LC Simplex A/B Switch allows the user the capability  of sharing a single port interface device, connected to the "COMMON" port, among two other devices, connected to the "A" or "B" ports.  The QuickSwitch® 6316 is enclosed in a 1U, full rack size, all metal black chassis designed to fit in a standard 19" rack.

The switch may be controlled locally by manually operating the front-panel pushbutton.  The front panel LED display indicates the switch position and unit power status.

Wide Range Power Option Available:   (Cat. No. 517277) CE, RoHS and UL listed table mount power module,100VAC/240VAC, 50Hz/60Hz for use in place of standard power module that is included with the unit.  Has IEC 60320 C14 inlet.  Ideal for international applications.
