Path Way® Remotely Controllable Network Switch
Model 7424 RJ45 A/B/C/D Switch with Serial Remote
Control Port

The PathWay® Model 7424 RJ45 A/B/C/D Switch provides 4-port switching in a low profile unit. It allows the user the capability of sharing a single RJ45 interface device connected to the Common port among four other devices connected to the A, B, C, and D ports.

The network switch may be controlled locally by manually operating the front panel pushbuttons or remotely from the DB9/female serial interface Remote port located on the rear of the unit. The front panel LED display indicates the switch position and power status.

LOCAL SWITCHING is achieved by simply pressing/holding the front panel pushbutton.
REMOTE SWITCHING of the unit is accomplished through the Remote port on the rear panel. The Remote port provides switch control based on an ASCII character command set sent via RS232 interface to the Remote port connector.
