  • The switch ports are transparent to all data.
  • All fiber signals are switched via break-before-make MEMS-based mirror/prism switch technology.
  • Switch maintains position on power loss and continues to pass data.
  • Front panel pushbutton control.
  • Control of the switch position from a 10/100Base-T LAN Ethernet environment. IP Addressable.
  • Remote Control Telnet command interface that allows the user to control switch position, lockout front panel operations and obtain switch status.
  • Remote control of the switch through the telnet command interface is password protected.
  • Front panel LED's for display of current position and power status.
  • All A, B, and COM ports are LC, Multimode, 62.5/125 micron, and support a wavelength of 1310nm.
  • Custom length rigorously tested and certified LC fiber optic cables available for your switch installation.

The QuickSwitch® Model 6283 Single Channel LC Duplex A/B Switch with Telnet Remote allows a device connected to the COM port access to the A or B port.  The switch may be controlled locally by manually operating the front panel pushbutton or remotely from the RJ45 Remote Control port located on the rear of the unit.  The RJ45 Remote port provides control through telnet commands and allows the user to both control and monitor the switch position remotely.
