The Lindsay Broadband LB-OSW21 is a 19” 1RU rack mount optical switch. It maintains full redundancy backup function by receiving, monitoring and controlling the optical input signals.
The LB-OSW21 optical switch also enables optical signals to be selectively switched from the primary optical source to a secondary optical source when the primary source goes below a specified optical power.
This optical switch has 2 independent channels with an electrically controlled, optical switching circuit. The optical detector converts the input into electrical signals and also provides feedback to the CPU. The CPU displays the optical power on the front panel and also through the SNMP web GUI. When the primary optical input power is lower than the set threshold, the CPU automatically switches to the secondary input channel. RF detection can also be enabled/disabled as per requirements.
The LB-OSW21 is equipped with an RJ45 Ethernet port and RS-232 serial port for system network management over SNMP or web GUI. An optional redundant power supply module is available upon request.
