The PathWay® Model 7345 Cat5 RJ45 Interface A/B Switch allows users to connect a workstation or device between two other devices or networks. The switch employs an RJ45 Cat5 connector interface on ports A, B, and Common. A front panel pushbutton allows the user to select the switch position. LED indicators on the front panel display the switch position.
The unit also has an RS232 serial port for remote control. The Remote port allows monitoring and control of the switch unit. A terminal or a computer in terminal mode connected to this port can communicate with the unit, determine its status, change the switch position as desired, and/or lockout front panel switching capability.
