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.


• CONNECTORS: Ports 1 - 8 are 100 Base FX fiber optic ST duplex ports. COMMON port is 100 Base-T RJ45. • FIBER OPTIC INTERFACE: Wavelength 1300 nm, speed 100 Mbps, multimode fiber, full duplex transmission. • CONTROLS: (8) Pushbuttons to select network port. (No remote port). • DISPLAY: (8) Status red LED's; (8) Link red LED's. • POWER: UL approved 100-240VAC / 50/60HZ wall mount power module supplies power to the unit, P/N 522586. • DIMENSIONS: 11" W x 2.7" h x 8.5" D (27.9 x 6.9 x 21.6 cm) • WEIGHT: Approximately 5 lbs (2.3 kg)
