Fiber-Optic Switch Uses Mirrors
Employing mirror technology, the QuickSwitch Model 6259 16-Channel Fiber Optic ST Simplex A/B/Off-Line Switch from Electro Standards Laboratories enables devices connected to the Common port of each channel to access the A or B port of each channel. The 2U rackmount unit goes offline on power loss and will stop passing data. All 16 channels of this A/B/Offline switch are switched simultaneously and switch ports are transparent to all data. The A, B, and Common ports are ST, Multimode, 62.5/125 micron and support a wavelength of 850 nm.
