The PathWay® Model 7245-ESL Dual Channel RS530 and ST Duplex (1300nm wavelength) Fiber Optic Secure/Non-Secure switch with Cutoff position provides two channel switching in a low profile, 19-inch 1U rack unit. The unit's dimensions are 19" W x 1.75" H x 8" D.
Channel One allows the user the capability of sharing a single DB25(F) interface device connected to the Common port among two other DB25 (M) devices connected to the SECURE and NON-SECURE DB25 ports.
Channel Two allows the user the capability of sharing a 10/100 Base-T device connected to the Common port among two ST Duplex (1300nm wavelength) Fiber Optic devices connected to the SECURE and NON-SECURE Fiber Optic switch ports. Both channels allow the user to set the switches to the Secure OffLine CUTOFF position, which stops any and all data throughput for the switch.
The network switch may be controlled locally by manually operating the front panel pushbuttons or remotely from the DB9 Control port located on the rear of the unit using either contact closure or an RS232 command interface. The front panel LED displays indicate the respective switch position and unit power status.
All ports (SECURE, NON-SECURE, and COMMON) for each switch are transparent to all data going through that switch. If power to the Model 7245-ESL is removed, both switches will automatically move to the CUTOFF position. When power is restored, each switch will move to the programmed default position.
