The Remote port is an RJ45 10/100Base-T Lan Access for remote control of the unit via GUI commands for Independent Channel Control and Gang Controls for simultaneous channel switching.

QuickSwitch® 6255 Quad Channel LC Duplex A/B Switch with Telnet & GUI application

QuickSwitch® 6255 Fiber Optic Network Switch Features:

  • Each of four channels allows quick connection to any one of two LC interface devices from one COMMON device.
  • RoHS Compliant
  • The switch ports are transparent to all data.
  • Switch maintains position on power loss and continues to pass data.
  • Switch powers up to last known position.
  • All fiber signals are switched via break-before-make MEMS-based mirror/prism switch technology.
  • Independent control via four front panel pushbuttons.
  • Control of the switch position from a 10/100-Base-T LAN Ethernet environment.  IP Addressable!
  • Remote Control Telnet command Interface that allows the user to control switch position, lockout front panel operations, obtain switch status, as well as, query firmware version number, query serial number, and enable/disable autosend of switch positions.
  • Graphical User Interface allows the user to control switch position via Independent Control of Simultaneous Control.
  • Front panel LED's for display the present position for each channel as well as power status.
  • All A, B, and COM ports are LC, Multimode, 62.5/125 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/B ports and vice versa.

The QuickSwitch® 6255 Quad Channel LC Duplex A/B Switch with Telnet and GUI allows a device connected to the COM port access to the A or B port for each channel.  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.  The Graphical User Interface is also accessible through the RJ45 Remote port. The front panel LED display indicates the position for each channel and the unit power status. 

The QuickSwitch® 6255 is enclosed in a 2U, full rack size, all metal black chassis designed to fit in a standard 19" rack. 

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


To connect to the switch from a workstation or computer having access to the LAN that the QuickSwitch® 6255 LAN port is connected to, simply launch a standard web browser and type in the appropriate IP address.  The Java Applet will be automatically uploaded from the switch upon connection.  The environment requirement for the GUI is Java 1.6 and above.
