Comments about Black Box Fiber Driver ST/25 Female:

I purchased this for a application to connect fiber into old equipment, this device will allow for pins configuration simply by changing toggle switch. We were able to install this product quickly and was able to document setup and configuration. The only negative about product is would be nice if you could mount on din rail or provide a mounting bracket.
