January 3, 2007 -- Electro Standards Laboratories (ESL) (www.electrostandards.com) has introduced its QuickSwitch Model 4294, a 4-way all-optic simplex fiber switch with threaded FC connectors, and featuring100/140 graded index fiber, UPC.

The switch features optical scalability and is bit-rate and data transparent and service/protocol transparent. Also, via the device's switch position memory feature, when power is lost, the switch automatically changes to its default position and will continue to pass data.

The remotely controllable FC simplex A/B/C/D switch is designed with the company's fiber-optic mirror technology, whereby the signal is received by the unit as an optical signal over the fiber strand, is redirected by mirror mechanisms, and leaves the unit as an optical signal over a fiber strand (OOO).

The Model 4294 allows a fiber-optic device connected to the unit's FC simplex COMMON connector to access any of the four fiber-optic networks connected to the switch's A, B, C, or D ports. Switch position can be changed via front-panel pushbuttons, or from an RS232 Serial Remote Port located on the unit's rear panel.
