Internal circuitry ensures isolation between networks/devices, where as common port converts selected fiber optic network port to 100BaseTX interface. Eight network ports of switch are 1,300 nm 100 Mbps ST duplex multimode fiber with SC duplex available.
Original Press Release:
M4193 8-Way Switch / Converter Minimizes Connector Wear with Its Simple Pushbutton Control
Electro Standards Laboratories (ESL), Cranston, RI, has just announced its new QuickSwitch Model 4193 which allows users to access any one of eight separate fiber optic networks by simply pushing a button on the front panel of the unit. This simple pushbutton switching eliminates plugging and unplugging fiber optic patchcords, minimizing connector wear and increasing system reliability. The fiber optic/twisted pair media conversion is built right in!
M4193 also insures isolation between networks/devices with its internal circuitry. The Common port converts the selected fiber optic network port to the 100BaseTX interface. This efficient network switch acts as a signal source with no optical signal loss. All eight network ports are 1300nm 100Mbps ST duplex multimode fiber with SC duplex available. A 4-port model of this unit is also available.
