Model 6266 AB Fiber Switches 6 Channels of Data at Gigabit Rates

March 21, 2014

For Immediate Release

Model 6266 6-Channel A/B Switch, LC Duplex, 10/100 Base-T LAN TELNET Access

Electro Standards Laboratories, Cranston, RI, announces the new Model 6266 6-channel, all optic, AB switch. This LC duplex switch features local pushbutton control as well as 10/100 Base-T LAN TELNET access. The Model 6266 shares a single port fiber optic LC duplex interface device connected to the COMMON port among two other devices connected to the A and B ports. All six channels are switched simultaneously


This switch is enclosed in a 2U, full rack size, all metal black chassis designed to fit into a standard 19” rack. The Model 6266 dimensions are 19.0” W x 3.5” H x 10” D (48.3 x 8.9 x 25.4 cm) and the weight is 6.5 lbs. (3.0 Kg). This switch is available for export.


The Model 6266 switch ports are transparent to all data. The fiber ports are LC duplex, multimode, 50/125 micron and support a wavelength of 850 nm. This state-of-the-art switch is designed with MEMS-based mirror/prism switch technology that supports Gigabit data rates. Front-panel LED’s display present position and power status. Remote control Telnet command interface allows the user to control switch position, lockout the front panel operations and obtain switch position.  For added reliability, the switch retains the last switch position in the event of a power loss and continues to pass data. Custom-length rigorously tested and certified LC fiber optic cables are available from the company for the switch installation.


The switch is shipped complete with a UL approved 100VAC/240VAC, 50Hz/60Hz wall-mount power supply that provides 12VDC, 500mA to the switch. This power module has a 2-prong, US, non-polarized plug.


An optional wide range power module, Catalog No. 517277, is available. This module is a CE, RoHS, and UL listed table-mount unit that features 100VAC/240VAC, 50Hz/60Hz. The IEC 60320 C14 inlet is ideal for international applications.
