QuickSwitch® Model 6214 Tri-Channel LC Duplex A/B/OFFLINE Switch with Contact Closure Remote
The application drawing illustrates three independent channels or A/B/OFFLINE Switching. Each channel has an LC Duplex COMMON port with access to Device 1, Device 2 or an OFFLINE position. The DB9 Remote port allows the user to control the unit via Contact Closure Commands.
- Each of three channels allows quick connection to any one of two LC Duplex 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.
- When power is lost, all channels revert to the Offline position.
- When power is restored, all channels remain in the Offline position until commanded otherwise.
- “OFFLINE” switch position stops any an all data throughput for the unit.
- Local control via front panel pushbuttons.
- Individual control of each channel.
- The Remote port accepts dry contact closure commands for switch position.
- Front panel LED’s display present position and power status.
- All fiber ports are LC Duplex, Multi-mode, 50/125 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.
- Custom length rigorously tested and certified, LC duplex fiber optic cables available for your switch installation.
The QuickSwitch® 6214 Tri-Channel LC Duplex A/B/Offline Switch with Contact Control Remote allows a device connected to the “COM” port access to the “A” or “B” port for each of its three channels. Alternately, the unit can be switched to its OFFLINE position and totally isolate connection to the “A” and “B” ports. The QuickSwitch® 6214 fits in a standard 19” rack, taking 1U of rack space.
The switch may be controlled manually via the front panel pushbutton or remotely from a DB9 port located on the rear of the unit. Switch position state may be attained via the front panel LED’s.
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.
