Product Highlights

  • No optical-to-electrical conversion between fiber connections. Instead, the switch uses internal mirrors to optically move data between ports—technology that's trusted and time tested!


  • Description

    Fiber Optic A/B Switch, Non-Latching, ST


    Quick Facts

  • No optical-to-electrical conversion between fiber connections. Instead, the switch uses internal mirrors to optically move data between ports—technology that's trusted and time tested!

  • Further Details

  • Simple to use. To route signals, just turn a knob on the front panel.
  • Ideal for government, healthcare, financial, or other applications where a private, data-sensitive network connects to a publicly accessible network.
  • For reliable switching in mission-critical environments, the micro-mirrors are bonded to precise positioning servos.
  • Enables you to connect a single workstation to two or more networks or remote devices.
  • Falls back to C-to-A position if power is lost.
  • Operates transparently to signal rates, formats, and wavelengths, and doesn't require an upgrade when your data protocols change or speeds increase.
  • Works with 62.5-/125-micron multimode.
  • Universal 100–240-VAC power supply.


  • There's a reason why this type of manual switch continues to be the switch of choice for networking professionals everywhere: It's a tried-and-true optical switch that performs as promised year after year.

    It's reliable because it uses micro-mirrors instead of electronics to route data signals from one fiber optic port to the next. And unlike conventional electronic switches, there are no complex and vulnerable electronic circuits to monitor and protect from intrusion, component failure, or interference.

    The switches are available in latching and non-latching models. The optical mirror movement on the latching versions maintains the selected position even when there's a power failure.

    You can also order an A/B switch with unique loopback capabilities (SW1011A-R2). Using loopbacks, you can verify the integrity of your backup fiber link while still connected to your primary fiber link. This is especially useful in failover applications where you want to continuously test the "unused" circuit to ensure that it's available if needed.
