Cranston-based Electro Standards Laboratories has released its new QuickSwitch 6297 Optical Multimode 3 (OM3) LC Duplex A/OFFLINE/B fiber switch, which is available with a serial remote.
The slim rackmount fiber switch has been designed for 10-Gigabit laser applications, and it enables access to one of the two optical fiber networks from a computer.
The QuickSwitch OM3 switches itself to the OFFLINE position prior to switching to B or A. Also when there is no power, the fiber switch turns to the OFFLINE mode. The rackmount switch uses the MEMS mirror/prism technology, which supports data rates in gigabit range.
The Optical Multimode-3 switch is equipped with rear-panel DB9 female connector that recognizes ASCII RS232 serial data commands for remote monitoring and control. The fiber ports of the 6297 OM3 switch support 850 nm wavelength, and are 50/125 micron, OM3 LC Duplex Laser Enhanced Multimode.
